5 Fall Wedding Cocktail Ideas From Our Wedding Bar Service

November 3, 2022

Fall weddings are growing in popularity and for good reason! Tying the knot later in the year not only keeps the competition down between your wedding and summer vacations but also provides you with a beautiful backdrop of fall foliage. If you’re planning an autumn wedding, don’t miss this opportunity to weave the colors of this beautiful season into your drinks! From Pour Bar Services, wedding bar service, here are five fall wedding cocktail ideas.

Apple Cider Margarita

Who says you can’t have a beach-themed wedding in autumn? With this festive variation on the margarita, our wedding bartender services can swap out limes for apple slices and add orange zest for a little zing. Instead of salt, we’ll rim the glass with a cinnamon and sugar mix. For garnishes, we’ll top it all off by dropping a perfectly sliced piece of apple and cinnamon stick into the drink.


  • 1-ounce Grand Mariner
  • 1-ounce gold tequila
  • 5-6 ounces of your favorite apple cider
  • orange zest and apple slices
  • a mix of cinnamon, cane sugar, coarse sugar
  • cinnamon sticks

Fig Smash Cocktail

If you’re looking for a sleek and sophisticated concoction, this champagne and fig cocktail will fit the bill. Our wedding bar service will start by blending your choice of champagne with sliced figs, honey, and lemon juice together. We’ll finish up by placing perfectly halved and skewered figs atop the glass. Subtly sweet and minimal in design, this cocktail makes a great addition to any modern wedding menu.


  • 8 fresh figs
  • 3 cups champagne
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 lemon
  • sliced figs
  • cocktail pick

Cranberry and Cinnamon Whiskey Sour

If you’re a sucker for a cinnamon stick, but want a deeper-colored drink this could be the one for you. For this autumnal take on the whisky sour, our wedding bar service can combine fresh cranberries, orange peels, citrus juices, and cinnamon to create this colorful cocktail. The red, plum, and orange hues not only encompass the palette of fall but all the tastes, too.


  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3/4 cup bourbon or whiskey
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • ice cubes
  • shaker

Apple Cinnamon Bourbon Cocktail

Going for a rustic reception? This warm, apple-cinnamon-and-bourbon cocktail embodies all the cozy and quaint vibes of the season. Our wedding bar service will shake the vodka, bourbon, liqueur, and apple cider together in a shaker, pour it into the glass, and tie it all together by threading the apple chip around the mouth as a garnish. If you really want to add to the rustic ambiance, have our wedding bartender services make this treat in mason jars!


  • apple cinnamon-infused vodka
  • Bourbon
  • Golden Falernum liquer
  • fresh apple cider
  • baked apple chip (we suggest Honeycrisp apples for an extra sweet twist)

White Pumpkin Cocktail

Finally, it wouldn’t be fall if we didn’t include something pumpkin-spiced! Our wedding bartender services will mix almond milk, honey, and your favorite rum together, sprinkling actual pumpkin spice on top. Pick out your favorite fall flower and our bar services for wedding place a sprig of it across the top of the glass for added an added feel of luxury. While pumpkin-flavored, this creamy cocktail is actually eggshell in color, making it perfect for those who want a more subtle nod to the season.


  • 1/2 ounce white rum
  • 3 ounces unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp. honey syrup
  • pumpkin spice
  • fall flower on a twig for garnish
