We’re putting away the margaritas and subbing in warming mugs of apple cider now that the temperatures have finally turned cooler (at least in New York)! One of our favorite things about fall weddings, aside from the bold autumn colors, are the specialty foods and cocktails that truly lend themselves to this picture-perfect season. Thinking about serving fall-inspired cocktails at your wedding? We’ve got 5 that’ll make you want to taste-test ASAP.
1. Apple Cider Mimosa
Forgo the warm cup of cider for a chilled variety, like this Apple Cider Mimosa that’s crisp and refreshing, just like the perfect fall day. It’s a delicious match of apple cider and champagne that’ll be welcomed at every event, from a wedding brunch or an evening cocktail hour. Via The Cookie Rookie
2.Bourbon Pecan Pie Milkshake
You know that Thanksgiving pie you absolutely adore? This Pecan Pie Bourbon Shake takes inspiration from your friendly dessert to make a decadent beverage of vanilla bean ice cream, pecans, shortbread cookies and bourbon. We think this would make an excellent pairing with the dessert at your wedding. And when served in mini glasses? It’s the perfect dose of pie…except with liquor! 🙂 Photography by Cooking in Stilettos via Cravings of a Lunatic
3. Caramel Apple Moscow Mule
A Moscow Mule coupled with the taste of sweet, autumnal caramel apples? Yes, please! We love this cocktail inspired by fall’s sweet treat that uses caramel vodka, apple cider and ginger beer. We know your guests will be ordering another. Via Yummly
4. Maple Hot Toddy
We love a great hot toddy. And this version mixing hot water and bourbon whiskey with maple syrup (instead of traditional honey), has us feeling all warm and cozy. Perfect for a late November wedding where the temperatures have really dropped, but it still totally looks like fall. Via T.e.l.l. New England
5. Mulled White Wine
Who says mulling spices are just for cider? This warm, mulled white wine recipe is such a welcomed and super-fresh take on a glass of chardonnay. It’s sweet and spicy with ingredients like oranges, honey, cinnamon, cloves, star anise and cardamom. Guests will thank you for their new favorite beverage. Via Gimme Some Oven
