Cozy Cocktails to Try This Fall

As the coziness of fall descends on us, we’re in the mood for something especially comforting. This year, we’re playing with cocktails, adding all the flavors of the season like apples and spice. If you want to try something new and delicious, then why not try these cocktails that take Sparkling Wine to a new level of cozy. You can always modify these to your personal taste--you might even enjoy playing with the sweetness of the wine you add. Depending on your favorite flavors, we have three recipes for you!

Zing and Pep Harvest Punch

  • 1/2 gal. apple cider
  • 1 bottle chilled Sparkling Wine
  • 1 c. vodka
  • 2 (12-oz.) can ginger beer
  • 3 apples, sliced
  • 2 oranges, sliced into triangles, plus more for rim garnish
  • 8 cinnamon sticks
  • Cinnamon sugar for rim garnish

Not-Your-Granny's Apple Pie Mimosa

  • 2 shots Fireball Whiskey
  • 2 shots Vodka (Whipped, Vanilla or Caramel work best)
  • 2 cups Apple Cider
  • 3 cups Moscato or Sparkling (go dry or sweet, your preference!)
  • Caramel Sauce for rim garnish
  • Cinnamon sugar for rim garnish
    ~ Recipe from The Humble Housewife ~

Bobbing for Apples Sparkling Sangria

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 small red apple, cored and sliced into matchsticks
  • 3/4 cup Jim Beam Apple Bourbon
  • 3 cups Apple Cider
  • 1 bottle chilled Sparkling Wine

Once you pick the recipe that intrigues you, combine all of the ingredients and serve! If you want the flavors to infuse a bit more, hold off on the Sparkling Wine or Moscato, and add it when you are ready to serve. When it’s time to get sipping, we recommend taking the time to rim and garnish your glasses, and turning on some cozy autumn jazz.
