6 Must-try Fall Cocktails 2021

by Cristina Navarro 3 min read

Just as the seasons come and go, so do our flavor profiles. It's officially Autumn and we've made a list of the best cocktails to try this season. From subtle to immersive, we've covered all the bases in order to fully embrace the taste of Fall. Cheers!

 

HONEY BADGER

This cocktail was created in 2015 by Liam Baer at Fish and Meat in Hong Kong. No idea if the 2011 viral video, crazy nastyass honey badger, had any influence on the naming of this cocktail, but probably. You’ll see it’s similar to a Penicillin. The original recipe called for rosemary-infused bourbon, but muddling rosemary into the bourbon works great as well. We love this as a fall cocktail 🍁

Honey Badger

    RECIPE

    • ¼ oz Fiery Ginger Syrup
    • 1 ½ oz bourbon
    •  ½ oz yellow chartreuse liqueur
    • ½ oz 2:1 honey syrup
    • ¾ lemon juice
    • 2 dash lemon bitters
    • 1 rosemary sprig

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Add bourbon and rosemary into a shaker tin
    • Muddle the rosemary into the bourbon
    • Add all other ingredients
    • Shake and strain into a rocks glass with ice 

    PUMPKIN SPICE MULE

    This pumpkin spice mule has a wonderful mix of seasonal flavors with pumpkin puree and Fiery Ginger Syrup. The addition of club soda makes it refreshing and tall, so you can sip on this pumpkin well into the night! You don't have to use a pumpkin mug, but it's a lot more fun if you do!

    Pumpkin Spiced Mule

    RecipE 

    Instructions

    • Add everything except the club soda to shaker tin with ice
    • Shake and double strain into a pumpkin mug filled with ice
    • Top with club soda

    FIG MANHATTAN

    Fig is a great complement to sweet vermouth's botanical mix. We recommend a good spicy rye whiskey for contrast.

    Fig Manhattan

    Recipe 

    Instructions

    • Add all ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice
    • Stir for 20 seconds and strain into a chilled coupe

    FALL IN MANHATTAN

    Old Fashioned vibes, with an herbal accent. If you love Green Chartreuse, this is the cocktail for you.  From Mike Ryan at the Velvet Hour.

    Fall in Manhattan

    RECIPE 

    • ¼ oz Demerara Gum Syrup
    • 2 oz rye whiskey
    • barspoon Green Chartreuse
    • 4 dashes aromatic bitters 

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Add all ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice
    • Stir for 20 seconds and strain into a chilled coupe

    VELVET REVOLVER

    This cocktail blends summer and fall perfectly. Developed by Robb Collins at London Cocktail Club in 2017, the cocktail first appeared in the book Cocktails in The City. The sweet strawberry is the perfect compliment to the cognac, and the red wine adds a wonderful richness. This one is definitely worth a try.

    Velvet Revolver

    Recipe

    • ¼ oz Classic Gum Syrup
    • 2 oz cognac
    • ¾ oz red win (pinot noir)
    • ½ oz strawberry preserves
    • ½ oz lemon juice
    • 2 dash aromatic bitters (optional)

    Instructions

    • Stir strawberry preserves and cognac in base of shaker until preserve is dissolved
    • Add all other ingredients to a shaker with ice
    • Shake hard for 15 seconds and fine strain into a cocktail glass

    ❻ Zombie 

    Are you up for the challenge? This is Don the Beachcomber's original Zombie recipe! He famously restricted his guests to only two of these potent serves. Frankly, that's probably one too many! Imbiber beware... Photo by @subtletiki

    Velvet Revolver

    Recipe

    • ½ oz Real Grenadine 
    • 1 ½ oz Jamaican rum 
    • 1 ½ oz Puerto Rican rum 
    • 1 oz overproof 151° rum 
    • ¾ oz fresh lime juice 
    •  ¼ oz fresh grapefruit juice 
    •  ½ oz falernum 
    •  ½ oz cinnamon syrup 
    •  2 dashes absinthe 
    • 1 dash aromatic bitters

    Instructions

    • Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker
    • Add ice and shake until chilled
    • Strain over crushed ice into a chilled glass

    Happy Fall everyone! & Cheers!

    Can you tell me what 5 or 7 great products of yours I could make a good quantity of different tasty drinks with a bent towards tropical drinks or do you have a guide for this other than going through 17 pages of recipes??
