Welcome Fall with These Cool-Weather Cocktails

Fall is the perfect season for cocktails. Warming liquors and fall flavors work well together and tend to suit the mood of seasonal gatherings. If you are hosting a party this fall, impress your guests with by asking your bartender to serve up some of these seasonally-inspired cocktails.

Pumpkin Martinis

People are split on the pumpkin spice trend, but those who love it can’t get enough. You can rest assured that at least a few people on your guest list love pumpkin in the fall and will appreciate you reflecting the flavor on your drink list. A pumpkin martini is a creamy and filling cocktail that captures one of fall’s most iconic taste by using vanilla vodka, pumpkin liqueur, whipped cream, and cinnamon sticks. The drink is easy to mix up but looks inviting and unique, making it a perfect signature drink for your fall event.

Irish Coffee

Irish coffee is a long-time favorite for cool weather, and there is a good reason it never goes out of style. All you need to put together this cocktail is some hot coffee, Irish whiskey, brown sugar, and whipped cream. The coffee should be strong enough to stand up to the flavor of the whiskey. Keep the brown sugar light, so it doesn’t become too sweet. If your guests want a hot drink but aren’t coffee fans, switch to a peppermint hot chocolate made with peppermint schnapps, crème de menthe, chocolate liqueur, and whipped cream.


Fall is the right time of year for Scotch whiskey, and the Godfather is good drink for those who don’t like to sip it straight. All you need is amaretto and Scotch—play around with the ratios to find a sweetness level that is right for you. Use a blended Scotch for this cocktail and save your single malt for neat sipping.
