Cozy sweaters and falling leaves are all we are anticipating, that and, of course, all the wonderful, rich flavors of this comfy season. And that means if you’re celebrating your “I do’s” during the season of changing colors and gourds galore, you’ll need a fancy, festive drink to toast to. Take a peek at 5 fun, festive fall-flavored signature drinks that we believe will make your reception stand out from the rest!
Pumpkin is the quintessential decor piece, scent and flavor of the fall – so it’s only natural that it be a part, in some form, of your autumn-dated wedding. And this sippable recipe could be the right choice for your reception and toasts of the night. This cocktail has a bit of pumpkin, a bit of pineapple for sweetness, cinnamon and some other scrumptious ingredients that make it a home run among your guests.
For something fruity in the fall, go for a seasonally appropriate cranberry. It’s tart, it’s sweet and goes well over ice. Take this recipe and try a bit. It’s a beautiful shade of rose and would be a unique twist on the usual lemon drops and martinis of traditional reception drinks. Spiced rum and ginger beer mix for this taste to happen.
Who doesn’t love apple, especially in the fall months? And this drink will not only surprise your guests but delight their taste buds too. It serves equally as the signature cocktail of the day and a bit of dessert too! You’ll just need some vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, bourbon and a couple of other yummy ingredients to get a sip of this.
There is something so rich and cozy about a bout of maple syrup on homemade pancakes. The smell is like home and the taste is like the fall, which makes it perfect as the center to your signature drink! A bit of rum, maple syrup and cinnamon are some of the key elements to this mix.
Chocolate is a flavor for all seasons, it just depends on the presentation and accompaniments. For those chillier nights throughout autumn with crisp wind and pre-winter freezes, why not serve up some warm cocktails for your guests? Take this salted caramel hot chocolate with tequila for example, your guests will never know what hit them.
