I love the name, look, and taste of this seasonal cocktail. And with its combination of apple cider, cognac, and orange liqueur, it’s perfect for celebrating the bounty of the season. I garnished mine with lemon peel.

This Harvest Apple Mule is an autumnal version of a Moscow mule. As you might have expected, this one is made with apple cider! It’s a classic recipe with a fall twist.
This Apple Cider Manhattan is made with bourbon, sweet vermouth, apple cider, and maple syrup. It’s the perfect balance of seasonal flavors.
The flavor of this Apple Pie Moonshine is a 10 out of 10. This is definitely a recipe you need to try. Plus, it makes a large batch so you can gift any extras to friends and family.
This fall cocktail is like biting into a caramel apple! And it only takes three ingredients: apple cider, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps. I also rim the glass with caramel sauce.
This is another autumn take on the martini that you’re going to love. It’s like drinking a slice of fresh-baked apple pie with vanilla ice cream. The glass is even rimmed with graham cracker crumbs!
This apple cider cocktail has all the flavors you expect in a traditional apple pie filling. The lovely apple pie spices come from a homemade simple syrup. The syrup is super easy to make, and I’ve included a link to it with this sangria recipe.
Step out and have a moscow mule that’s tailored to the fall season! Made with caramel vodka, apple cider, and ginger beer, this Caramel Apple Cider Moscow Mule combines the flavors of the season with a classic mule to create a crisp, refreshing, and autumnal libation you’re going to love.
