To celebrate the arrival of fall, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite harvest-y cocktails (and cocktail-related goodies). Any one of these would be a seasonal crowd pleaser, and adding a signature cocktail to your bar menu is a nice personal touch. If you’re on a budget, consider offering only beer, wine, and a signature cocktail (or two) in lieu of an open bar.
We can’t resist a tropical twist, so we’re dying to try this “sweet but balanced” pumpkin-pineapple cocktail created by Kate of Cookie + Kate. See the full recipe right here.
An intriguing variation on the traditional Fig Old-Fashioned, this modern recipe from The Kitchn calls for fresh figs, bourbon, maple syrup, and balsamic vinegar.
Originating in Savannah, Georgia, in the 1850s, Chatham Artillery Punch is a Southern favorite. “It is said that the concoction possesses a kick greater than the two brass cannons presented to the Chatham Artillery by George Washington,” states Savannah Style, Savannah’s Junior League cookbook. Originally brewed in ice-filled horse buckets, the traditional recipe called for sugar; lemon; a quart each of brandy, whiskey, and rum; and champagne.
