Festive Fall And Holiday Cocktail Recipes

Posted: Updated:

The barometer has dipped. Every morning we wake up to frost on the ground. And the leaves are finally changing colour. All can only mean one thing: fall is just around the corner.

This year, toast the season (responsibly, of course) and all of the wonderful things autumn has to offer -- Halloween, Thanksgiving, apple picking -- with one of these delightful and delicious cocktails!

The Apple Crisp

A sippable way to enjoy one of autumn's top fruits; it's perfect as dessert!

Ingredients

1 oz. Canadian whisky
1/2 oz. cinnamon simple syrup
4-5 oz. apple cider

Method

To a highball glass filled with ice, add Canadian Whisky, cinnamon simple syrup and apple cider. Garnish drink with cinnamon stick. This cocktail can be served warm as well, just omit the ice and warm in a heat-resistant mug.
