Seasonal Sips for Fall

Fall Ginger Smash

This fall version of the Ginger Smash has been with us for years, but it truly came together with the addition of allspice dram, a highly bitter and aromatized liqueur.

Drambuie Caramel Apple Cider

You haven't had warm apple cider like this before.

Cranberry-Lime Shrub Sparkler

Popular in colonial times, a shrub is a sweetened fruit and vinegar syrup.

Mexican Hot Chocolate with Vanilla and Chile

Mexican chocolate has a grainy texture because it is made with toasted ground cocoa beans, granulated sugar, and cinnamon.

Eve’s Black Heart

Similar to a Black Velvet, which is made with Guinness and Champagne, this beer cocktail has a double hit of apples from both hard cider and apple brandy.

Verte Chaud

This is Jamie Boudreau's version of a surprisingly delicious pairing.

Blacker & Tanner

This cocktail takes the classic Black & Tan—stout and pale ale—and cranks it up, blacker and tanner, with a double IPA and an imperial stout.

Homemade Apple Cider

Making your own apple cider is admittedly pretty labor-intensive, but it can be a fun weekend project.
