Festive Fall Drinks to Make at Home
Posted on 13 Sep 2021
From cozy nights cuddled up in your Reunion great room to crisp days taking in vibrant fall foliage on your patio, make your seasonal memories extra-special with tasty sips. Become your own bartender this autumn with drinks inspired by the season — check out a few of our favorite recipes to get started:
Pumpkin Spice White Russian
Crazy about all things pumpkin spice and looking to expand from lattes? Give a jazzed-up White Russian a try! You’ll need two-thirds of a cup of vodka and three-quarters of a cup of heavy cream as well as coffee liqueur and a generous dash of pumpkin spice. Shake or stir with ice and pour into chilled tumblers — if your sweet tooth still demands more, you can even garnish with a cookie crumble rim! Serve as an evening cocktail at the beginning of your next dinner party with neighbors to set the autumn atmosphere.
Classic mimosas are year-round breakfast staples, but adding a little fall flair never goes amiss. A cranberry-orange take on the bubbly beverage will have you dreaming about pumpkin patches and Thanksgiving turkey — and gives you a colorful addition to weekend brunch in your dining room. Start by blending around two cups of cranberries — use frozen if you want more of a slushy texture — before adding to a large pitcher and mixing in three cups of orange juice and a dash of lemon zest. Fill flutes halfway with your juice and top with prosecco.
Kentucky Mulled Cider
If you’re a fan of simple, satisfying, and sophisticated, serve up Kentucky mulled cider! For individual drinks, pour one shot of your bourbon of choice into heat-safe glasses. Stir in autumn flavors like cinnamon and splash in a touch of lemon juice, then finish with warm apple cider and garnish with a wedge of lemon or cinnamon stick. Enjoy while relaxing with your favorite show and favorite people in your great room after a long day.
