Fall is officially here, which means putting down the frosé and reaching for something a little cozier. I mean let’s be honest, what’s better at warming your soul than booze? If you have been reading for awhile then you already know my love affair with cocktails. Creating a great drink menu is one of my favorite things to do when entertaining my friends. Simplicity is wonderful for wine Wednesdays, but when it comes to festive celebrations like Friendsgiving, I prefer to make it a little more special. Impress your friends this holiday season with these 11 delicious drink recipes.
1. Apple Cranberry Mule
Moscow mules are my favorite cocktail, so obviously I’m excited about this festive version.
2. Apple Cider Mimosas
I wouldn’t be me if this list didn’t include a mimosa recipe.
3. Dirty Pumpkin Milkshake
Dirty is in the name…how bad can it be.
4. Mulled Cranberry Orange Sangria
There is no season in which I’m not craving sangria.
5. Apple, Pumpkin Beer Cocktail
This beer cocktail will bring even the dudes in your life to the bougie side.

Another mule recipe for the win. I’ll take my pie in this form any day.

Bourbon has never sounded (or looked) so good.
