Fall Cocktails for The Best Season of the Year

Is there a season other than fall that's ideal for sipping cocktails?  

While winter cocktails are cozy and summer cocktails are enjoyable, nothing beats watching the leaves change color while drinking a delicious beverage on the porch and simply observing the passing of time. 

Cocktail with Poinsettia This is a cocktail that lives up to its name; it's deeply red and has an unjustified reputation for being strong.

Grilled Orange Traditional Pumpkin spice latte, it's been a wonderful run, but it might be time to put up your hat. The true cocktail of the season is this sweet and smoky bourbon cocktail.

Cocktail using Old Scholar Rye Whiskey What other name could we give to a beverage that contains muddled sage? While we won't claim this well-balanced mixture as an instant classic, it's already our one and only preference when lounging on the back porch.

River Cocktail with Whiskey Take it easy; this cocktail takes its name from one of our favorite old Willie Nelson songs, but we don't want you to drown in it.

Warmer for Woodchuck You'll want a drink that will keep you warm when September begins to transition from warm to cool. This hot cider with spices is perfect.

Spiced Pumpkin White Russian Call it vintage rather than simple. An iconic fall cocktail made with coffee liqueur with crumbled gingersnaps and pumpkin pie spice.

Negroni Mezcal Negronis are extremely popular for a good reason—they have the ideal ratio of sweetness to bitterness. However, the hint of smokey mezcal gives the perfect amount of seasonal fall taste.
