Three Fall Cocktail Recipes to Make at Home

Preparing high-quality drinks at home for your fall cocktail recipes shouldn’t be that hard.

The following recipes are designed by mixology pros and you can easily make them at home. You might need some bar accessories like a shaker.

Charlotte Voisey at liquor.com says: “As the weather gets colder, I like to add layers (just as you would with clothing) and complexity to my drinks. The easiest way to do this is to start with a mature spirit, such as spiced rum or whiskey, that already has plenty of rich flavors. (Gin can work too, but you have to play up its spicy side.) You can also take an unaged spirit and pair it with a taste of autumn, like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, or ginger. And if you have some time, you can even infuse the liquor with these spices, or with fresh seasonal fruit.
