3 Cocktails to Start The Fall Season Strong

September 22, 2021

Happy First Day of Fall! Even though summer was nice and warm, POUR Bar Services, the best North Carolina bar services have been patiently waiting for fall to share these three delicious cocktails recipes with you and start the fall season strong. Since fall is all about pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and apple pies, the following recipes give you just that plus all those fall notes in a glass.

Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktail


  • Bourbon
  • Apple cider (homemade or store-bought)
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Granulated sugar
  • Rosemary sprig (to decorate)
  • Thinly sliced apples (to decorate)

How to make it: Pour the cinnamon and sugar into a small plate and mix them together to create a cinnamon-sugar rim. After wetting the glass with some apple cider, dip the glass in the cinnamon-sugar rim. Pour 2 parts of bourbon and 4 parts of apple cider, and add ice if you like. Stir carefully and finish up by adding the rosemary sprig and sliced apples on top to decorate.

Pumpkin Spice Martini

You'll need:

  • 1.5 fl oz of vanilla vodka

  • 1.5 fl oz pumpkin flavored liqueur
  • Ground cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1 cup of ice

How to make it: In a cocktail shaker, add vanilla vodka, Irish cream liqueur, and pumpkin-flavored liqueur with ice. If you don't have a cocktail shaker, simply mix your ingredients in a glass. Finally, garnish with ground cinnamon and nutmeg.

Spiced Apple Prosecco

Gather Together:

  • 4 oz of apple cider
  • 6 oz of prosecco
