11 Autumn Cocktails To Sip As The Leaves Fall

|

Autumn has officially arrived and it’s time for a new set of cocktails to hit our palates. The Gin & Tonics and Aperol Spritz that were perfect for summer heat, aren’t made to handle the chill fall breeze. We need something to prepare us for the transition to winter that isn’t Mulled Wine or a Hot Toddy. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 11 Autumn Cocktails that are perfect to sip while watching the leaves turn.

In order to make the list, we asked some of our favorite bartenders to put together some drinks that would complement the season. Whether you want something with apple, pear, Gin, Rum, Whiskey, Brandy, Sherry, or even something with a low ABV, you’ll find a drink on this list that’s perfect. And don’t worry if you’re not ready to give up your Aperol quite yet, we’ve got a couple cocktails in the list that use the Italian aperitif.
