Brunch is known for mimosas and bloody Marys, but the crisp fall breeze is making me seriously crave some fall drinks – lots of apple cider, pumpkin spice, pear and more. Sure, you can grab a bottle of champagne and splash it with apple cider, but these cocktail recipes kick your next brunch up a notch.
It’s time to cozy up in your comfiest fall sweater and pour yourself one of these delicious drinks, cheers!
1. Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Apple Cocktail
Nothing says decadent like a cocktail with caramel apples and salted peanut rims. These drinks may take an hour to cook, but you’ll have 8 in the end to share with friends or down yourself.
2. Butternut Squash Old-Fashioned
So you’ve had an old-fashioned, but this turns it up a notch. The key to this one is infusing the bourbon with roasted butternut squash for a few weeks.
3. Chorizo Negroni Cocktail
I always add some kind of bacon to my bloody mary, but it’s never crossed my mind to infuse a drink with chorizo! This recipe has the smoky, savory flavor of the sausage infused gin, which takes Negronis to a whole new level.
4. Bourbon Pumpkin Smash
You can’t go wrong with a bourbon pumpkin cocktail in my opinion. What’s even better is that you can save the Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup for lattes, oatmeal, baked goods… you can get creative with it.
5. Pumpkin Spice White Russian
A White Russian but make it fall. This is a really easy cocktail. The only big difference is that it calls for Pumpkin Spice Creamer. You can make this recipe gluten free if you skip the graham cracker rim. I’d rim it with Pumpkin Spice and Maple Sugar.
6. Apple Pie Bellini
Oh my gosh vanilla vodka, apple cider, and champagne… say no more! This is an essential brunch cocktail for fall.
7. Salted Caramel Apple Old-Fashioned
These infused bourbons are slowly becoming my favorite if you hadn’t noticed. This apple-infused bourbon only takes a couple of days to be ready for this delicious fall recipe.
8. Pumpkin Spice Moscow Mules
Whether it’s brunch or happy hour, I love a good Moscow Mule. Freutcake turns a classic moscow mule into a fall delight with Pumpkin puree, vanilla vodka, and pumpkin pie spice.
9. Pumpkin Spice Margarita
Pumpkin Spice isn’t just great in lattes. This margarita takes a few simple ingredients to make a delicious fall-inspired tequila cocktail.
10. Ginger Pear Bourbon Cocktail
A friend of mine just tried a very similar cocktail to this without the simple syrup and said it is one of the best fall cocktails she’s tried. If you like yours a bit more spicy, give this cocktail a try in the name of fall.
