Fall is practically here and I know I am starting to look forward to the crisp evenings around bonfires with friends. And of course sipping on something sweet! While warm apple cider is my autumn-in-a-cup, there are so many great fall flavors out there; I figured there had to be some unique and yummy drinks too. Add an extra splash of fall to your next get-together with one of these autumn drinks.
Let your guests warm up on a crisp fall evening with a pumpkin spice latte! This Starbucks favorite can easily be made at home and is a perfect fall drink. Save hot chocolate for the winter, as the spice and pumpkin flavor of this latte screams autumn! (Photography via: The Simple Delights)
Mix up a rich mocha with a dash of cinnamon for a fall taste. Guest will love this little twist on this classic warm drink. Also, mochas have espresso which is perfect for your guests who are struggling without the warm sunshine or after losing the hour from day-light savings. (Photography via: Oprah)
If you’re looking for a fall flavored drink that isn’t necessarily warm this “Pumpkin Pie Kahlua Smoothie” is perfect! Pumpkin pie lovers will adore this tasty treat, and the splash of Kahlua makes it the perfect replacement for a cocktail at your fall bash! (Photography via: Very Culinary)
Not a fan of pumpkin, why not serve this “Honeycrisp Apple Sangria.” The cinnamon and apple flavor of this drink gives it that fall flavor of apple cider while still remaining a fun cocktail that your guests will love. I especially love the cinnamon and sugar rimmed glass; it adds that extra touch! (Photography via: Nutmeg Nanny)
This adorable drink keeps with the autumn theme, but does not have the pumpkin taste making it perfect for those who aren’t fans of cinnamon spice, pumpkins, and apples. Add this orange and lime sliced topper to an orange cocktail for an autumn feel. Or make it kid friendly by adding it to a glass of orange juice. (Photography via: Hostess with the Mostess)
So we may have to say goodbye to lying out in the sun and pina coladas, but these delicious sounding drinks make me welcome fall with open arms!
