Caramel Apple Cider Martini Recipe #fall #cocktail #martini #apple #caramel #applecider

Caramel Apple Martini
This fall cocktail is like a liquid dessert. And it only takes three ingredients: apple cider, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps. I also rim the glass with caramel sauce.


This Caramel Pear Cider makes a delicious and unique Fall Cocktail Recipe! #caramel #pear #cider #fall #cocktail #recipe #mulled

Caramel Pear Cider
Don’t be fooled by this unpretentious-looking fall drink. The combination of apple cider, pear cider, and caramel syrup is out-of-this-world! To add a bit of drama, I serve it with a cinnamon stick and thin, fresh-cut whole pear slice.

This seasonal libation is not to be missed. It combines mulled wine and mulled cider. Need I say more!? I’m certain you’re going to enjoy it as much as I do.

Autumn Harvest Fall Sangria
Fall is an ideal time for sangria. (For that matter, any season is. Find all of my seasonal sangria recipes HERE.)  This version has the bold colors and flavors of autumn, and it’s easy to make a big batch if you’re expecting guests.

Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe #moonshine #apple #christmas #gift #holdiay #recipe

Apple Pie Moonshine
As its name suggests, this fall cocktail packs a punch. I warn folks about this and serve it in small doses. I found some tiny mason jar-shaped glasses that were the perfect size, but standard shot glasses will work equally well.


Caramel Apple Pie Martini - Fall Cocktail Recipe #apple #pie #caramel #fall #cocktail #recipe

Caramel Apple Pie Martini
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.


Apple Cider Sangria #fall #cocktail #recipe #applecider #sangria

Apple Cider Sangria
You can’t miss when you make this fall cocktail! It’s a mix of apple pie vodka and apple cider. Seasonal spices and cut-up apples, pears, and grapes enhance the flavor and visual appeal.


Pumpkin Old Fashioned Fall Cocktail Recipe #pumpkin #oldfashioned #cocktail #fall #recipe

Pumpkin Old Fashioned
Yes, you can have your pumpkin and drink it, too. This classic cocktail has been tweaked with pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and black walnut bitters. All of that is mixed with bourbon, so the taste is amazing!


Apple Cinnamon Hot Toddy #fallcocktail #hottoddy #cocktail #apple #cinnamon #recipe

Apple Cinnamon Hot Toddy
If you’re craving something warm on a chilly autumn evening, may I suggest this yummy toddy? This fall cocktail gets a flavor upgrade inspired by apple pie. Traditional with a twist!

Salted Caramel White Russians #saltedcaramel #caramel #fallcocktail #whiterussian #kahlua #recipe

Salted Caramel White Russian
I’ve always enjoyed a White Russian (It’s like a vanilla milkshake with vodka.), and this one is incredible. Two of the reasons are the salted caramel coffee liqueur and salted caramel vodka.


Frozen Pumpkin Pie Martini #pumpkin #pie #martini #cocktail #recipe

Frozen Pumpkin Pie Martini
This is an ideal dessert drink when you need to chill out on a fall night. You will love the fusion of a pumpkin milkshake and a pumpkin pie martini. I topped mine with a dollop of whipped cream.


Maple Cranberry Bourbon Cocktail - Holiday / Christmas Cocktail Recipe #cranberry #bourbon #maple #holiday #chirstmas #cocktail #recipe

Maple Cranberry Bourbon Cocktail
The tart-meets-sweet of this cocktail gives it a unique flavor sensation for the season. Folks who follow IBC know that I have become a bourbon aficionado in recent years. In case you haven’t yet been converted, I have a feeling this drink will favorably influence your preferences.
