It’s that time of year when we bundle up, give thanks and drink like a sailor on shore leave. This month, point your cocktail compass in new directions. From a boozified spiced pumpkin latte to a matcha sesame punch with a kick, these are the 11 drinks to serve at your next November party.
Tequila lovers, this is the punch for you! Black-tea-infused vermouth, reposado tequila and baking spices get combined with apple cider and lemon juice for a sparkling flavor explosion in your glass. If you really want to get creative, experiment with different sweet vermouth and black tea combinations. Just make sure to leave plenty of time before your party for proper infusion.
Three letters, three ingredients—it doesn’t get easier than that. The G.C.S. stands for gin, Campari and shrub, in this case a bright and colorful maple beet shrub made with maple syrup and beet juice for a sweet-yet-vegetal flavor profile that makes an impression—and one hell of a cocktail!
It’s everyone’s favorite new exotic cocktail ingredient: matcha. Here, it’s paired with both sesame-infused vodka and sencha-tea-infused vodka in a drink that’s subtle in flavor and pairs well with the season’s specialities on your table. Serve chilled, or if you feel a nip in the air, try it hot.
