Watermelon, you will be missed—but it’s time to make room in your glass for fall’s favorite fruits.
This season’s stars—apples, pears, figs, cranberries, pomegranates and Concord grapes—are ripe and ready for sipping.
It’s time to say goodbye to the summer sun and embrace all things autumn. Does a dip in your daily dosage of Vitamin D have you in a fall funk? The Fall & Summer is your ticket to a little sunshine as the cool weather heads your way. This sweet and spicy tipple combines tequila, orange juice and ginger syrup with fall-friendly fig preserves and rosemary.
Pears are aromatic, sweet and in season right now, so it only makes sense to feature this curvy fruit in a crisp cocktail. Fresh pear purée and elderflower liqueur enhance this seasonal riff on the French 75 with gin, lemon juice and a splash of Champagne. Looking for something to lift your spirits? You can count on this bubbly pear drink.
When it comes to showing off fall fruit, this twist on an old standard steals the show. There’s no better way to appreciate the season’s most fleeting flavor than with a cocktail that gets fruitier as you drink. The vodka, ginger, lime and club soda concoction gets an upgrade with Concord grape juice ice cubes that infuse the drink as they melt.
