Autumn Inspired Cocktails

Halloween is right around the corner! And while my kids are obsessed with finding the perfect costume, as a parent I am more concerned with finding the right beverage to sip on while I trail them through the neighborhood. Here are some great Autumn inspired cocktails to enjoy that night, or any chilly evening beside the fire pit.

 

Fall Inspired Sangria

Serves 4

1 Apple, 1 Pear and 1 Orange, sliced

 2 Cinnamon Sticks

1 Bottle Pinot Grigio

2 cups Apple Cider

1/2 cup Brandy

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and allow to sit in the refrigerator overnight.  You can also top off with a little sparkling wine or club soda and garnish with fresh cranberries or pomegranate seeds for extra flair!

 

Cranberry-Apple Moscow Mule

Serves 4

6 ounces Vodka

1/2 cup Cranberry Juice

3/4 cup Apple Cider

2 Ginger Beers (I recommend Reed's)

Combine vodka and juices and divide into 4 Moscow mule mugs or highball glasses with ice.  Top with ginger beer.  Garnish with fresh cranberries and a squeeze of fresh lime.

Pumpkin Spice Martini

Serves 4

4 Tbsp. Pumpkin Puree

8 ounces Pumpkin Spice Khalua

4 ounces White Chocolate Liquer

4 ounces Half and Half

Shake all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.  Strain into martini glass.  Garnish with cinnamon stick, whipped cream and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice.
