Serving a special drink is an easy way to elevate any function you decide to host. Typical autumn flavors shy away from the classic light citruses of summer cocktails. Now, we use richer, more aromatic, pallets to convey the flavor of the season. Your guests will surely wolf down these tantalizing potions.

Poison apple cider 

Impress your boo-freind/ghoul-friend with a fancy homemade date night. Muddle blackberries and add to your glass. Fill the glass halfway with champagne, and finish with apple cider. Garnish with a slice of apple and serve. 

Fire Stix 

Take your drinking glass, maple syrup, and cinnamon sugar and rim your glass like you would a margarita. In the glass, put a glob of syrup and Add a shot of cinnamon whiskey, a can of tonic water, and top with apple cider. Stir with a cinnamon stick and serve. Try not to breathe over any open flames. 

Beetle Juice 

Tequila, desert pear syrup, and legit pear juice all go in the shaker with ice. Set aside and grab some colorful rock candy to rim your glass. The more on theme the better. Pour in the contents of your shaker and serve with your black and white striped straw. For extra fun, add food coloring, preferred colors are purple and green. Say this three times and things may get really weird.

Smashed PSL

Park your brooms and make your booooozey coffee at home! With baileys and your coffee, add in your pumpkin spice and stir in. They make pumpkin spice liqueurs, but you can just use cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Top with your choice of whipped cream, and if you’re feeling ambitious, go for the alcoholic whipped cream too! 

Mulled Wine 

Two shots of orange juice, two shots of apple cider, mulling spices (sparingly add nutmeg, cloves, ginger and anise) and ice in a shaker. Rim your glass with brown sugar and pour from your shaker. Top off with champagne and garnish with an orange slice. For extra flair and even better smells, take your orange slices and bake them in the oven. At 200 degrees for about four hours, the orange slices will dry out and your home will smell magnificent. Keep an eye on the oven, and do this before you start drinking! 

Tis the season for hosting and ghosting, so whether you’re shying away on your couch with a nice drink, or sharing one with your coven, add these recipes to your list.
