The moment the weather gets cooler, everyone goes crazy for fall. It’s almost unfair how much hype autumn gets compared to the other three seasons of the year, but let’s face it: tailgating + pumpkin spice + apples = the best. Put down your seasonal beers and your #basic Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and get fall drunk in style with these crisp apple cocktails.
Maple syrup isn’t just for pancakes anymore. Put some bourbon, lemon juice and cider in the mix and you’ve got the perfect porch drinking potion.
This one’s for all you wine lovers out there. What better way to spend your evening than taking a romantic walk through the fall foliage and coming home to a tall glass of apple drank?
You’re all about brunch. You’re all about fall. And now you’re all about Spoon because we’ve shown you the best way to combine the two. Control your resting brunch face, please.
Helloooooooooo, fall football. Nothing will warm you up after a cold game like this sweet and spicy autumn punch. It will make your kitchen smell ah-mazing, plus the recipe makes enough for 8 people so you can share with your friends (or just drink it all yourself).
Are you team apple pie or team pumpkin pie? Either way, you’ll love this dessert drink. Serve it warm, cold, or somewhere in between. Pick between apple pie vodka or caramel vodka to personalize this punch, or add both for the perfect mix of seasonal flavors.
Oh, you fancy, huh? We all know and love grenadine as that syrupy red stuff in our favorite mocktail, the Shirley Temple. But it’s actually super easy to make and only has two ingredients (sugar and pomegranate juice). Add some OJ and AppleJack and you’ve got yourself a fall martini that even your pickiest friends will love.
Another hot cider drank to keep you warm and toasty this fall. Do you love tea? Do you love getting drunk? This one’s got you covered. Bonus points for fancy garnishes.

Fall’s best candied treat is now an alcoholic beverage. Hollaaaa. In case you haven’t tried it, caramel flavored vodka is da bomb.com. Seriously.
Definitely NSFW. This one’s not for the faint of heart — it’s pretty much 100% alcohol. Hard cider with a shot of whiskey and some cinnamon for added spice makes this drink a naughty one.
Okay, sooooo not everybody likes fancy fall drinks. Try this classic twist on a gin and tonic if you’re one of those people. The recipe calls for apple juice, but apple cider will work just as well, if not better.
13. Mulled Wine
There’s no cider in this one, but it does call for a shot of apple liquor so we’ll let it slide. Mulled wine is to fall what sangria is to summer — basically, it’s your go-to. Bonus: This is another one that will leave your stanky college house smelling like the inside of a candle store.
