Okay and yes, let’s address the elephant in the room: I have an apple cider addiction. Because, how can you not?

Guys, I think I have eight apple cider cocktails for you this season. Maybe give or take one. I LOVE apple cider so much (p.s. yes homemade is coming soon), I adore that it can be hot or cold, and it just makes the best fall cocktails.

Speaking of, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to bring Thursday cocktails back for the fall. Because here’s the thing: in the summer, I drink mostly chilled rosé or white wine. Maybe some margaritas. Maybe (a gallon of) an aperol spritz.

In the fall though? I want all the sangrias, punches, those warm-you-to-the-core autumn flavors that make me so happy.

Is that how your cocktail hours are going?

Please tell me yes.

See, it’s rare that I will run out and buy a bunch of new bottles for punch or cocktails unless it’s a REALLY good, almost classic, relied on recipe that everyone loves. Like my white apple cider sangria. I want to use the ingredients over and over again!

This is one of those. With some tart pomegranate flavor, a whole cup of aperol (it works incredibly well in fall drinks!) and bubbly, dry prosecco. 

THIS IS A KEEPER.

In addition to being all around obsessed with the flavor of this punch, you know, with the whole “it’s almost fall but it’s 90 degrees so let’s make a fun drink!” thing, it’s one that you can totally make ahead of time. 

If you’re going to a tailgate party or want to transport this somewhere, combine everything and take it with you. It’s perfect! The bubbles may die down a bit, but it still tastes incredible.

Then, if you find yourself with leftover apple cider, pour it in some popsicle molds! Freeze ’em and serve with the punch. Wisdom, I tell you.

Cocktail Thursdays are BACK for the fall and I couldn’t be more excited!

I mentioned it in my last summer fridays post of the year, but this season gets me so pumped for fun drinks that I couldn’t pass up any more weeks of not sharing these with you. It was like I was hoarding secrets all to myself. Secrets of tequila and rosé and whiskey and champagne.

Not all together in one glass, don’t worry.

Let’s start with this cider prosecco spritz. Ummm it’s been no secret that for the last three or four years I’ve been aperol spritz obsessed. Yes, the classic aperol spritz – I don’t want any other variations in the summer!

The rest of the year though? That’s another story. 

Last December, I shared this winter version that I love so much. And in the howsweeteats holiday guide, there is an aperol punch!

So it was high time for a slightly autumnal spritz. Or, for me to… um… trash up a spritz with apple cider. Yes that sounds about right.

If you love apple cider like I do AND you love prosecco like I do, well then, you’re going to be in heaven. The slight orange flavor of the aperol really complements the apple and it’s super refreshing while also being… warm? 

You know. Me and all my great descriptions.

I LOVE this drink because it helps transition these late summer weeks into early fall. It’s bubbly and icy but has a little warmth from the cider and the cinnamon. Not to mention the flavor – hello! 

It’s also embarrassingly easy. Throw everything together over ice and you’re golden. Sip it on the patio as the sun goes down (earlier and earlier!) and the air gets a little cooler.
