10. Appletini

One of the top ten autumn cocktails

The crisp taste of apples just screams autumn. Mix 2 parts of vodka and 1 part apple schnapps. Use caramel vodka instead and this becomes a Caramel-Appletini. It’s wonderful for combining the classic flavors of autumn, and a guaranteed hit at an adult Halloween cocktail event. All you need to ask is “Shaken or stirred?”

9. Mulled Wine

There are many recipes for mulled wine. If you have never tried it before don’t be intimidated; it’s just red wine that has been simmered on the stove with a variety of warm spices (think cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg), citrus slices and sometimes brandy.

Use a bold red wine that will stand up to the infusion of flavors, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. Mulled wine is perfect for taking the chill off after raking leaves, taking a long walk in the crisp Fall evening with your dog, or coming home after watching your team win the football game.

8. Cranberry Liqueur
