Fall cocktail season is seriously the best. I mean, I guess I could argue that fall is the best time for ANY sort of drink. And I can’t even tell you how many delicious ones I have here on the blog. Don’t make me choose a favorite! I worship at the altar of apple cider, but there are lots of delish pomegranate, maple and pumpkin flavors here too.

I’ll be sharing more again this fall of course, but I couldn’t help but put them all in one place for you to find. Seriously, all my best fall cocktails. We had pumpkin beer last weekend and it was so.freaking.good so I’m officially ready for all the apple cider drinks and cocktails! It’s been on my brain.

P.S. there are a few fantastic mocktails here too. What’s your fall go-to drink?!

Apple cider mezcal margarita

This drink is different from my classic apple cider margs, in that it’s a little big smokier. I like to think that it’s more grown up than the one I first shared here back in 2011!
