What’s not to love about Fall? The changing of the leaves to beautiful shades of browns, orange and gold. Days getting colder, long walks in nature, wearing cosy knits and boots, coming home to lit candle in corners and sipping your favourite fall cocktails, while staring into an open fire. You get the picture.
Cocktails are not just for the long summer days, they’re perfect for any season too. For us, the perfect Fall Cocktail Recipe will include a lot of apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, oranges, zesty lemon, ginger, rum and brandy. A perfect treat to come home to after a day spent in the cold.
