One of the best ways to savor a season is through your tastebuds. Whether you’re indulging in apple pie or a pumpkin-flavored treat, fall does not disappoint when it comes to its culinary offerings. When you’re looking for a drink to pair with your seasonal meals, you’ll be happy to know that there are a variety of beverages that also embrace the season. Whether it be a warm, cozy drink or a fun libation, the following pours will elevate the fall months.
Spicy Turmeric Chai Latte
A chai latte blends zesty warming spices into a creamy and satisfying drink. This recipe from Darn Good Veggies involves steeping black tea with honey, turmeric, ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon. Not only is this recipe nourishing, but the black tea can be an alternative to coffee when you’re looking for an energy boost. Pair this drink with your favorite fall baked goods or wow guests at your next brunch by pairing it with pumpkin pancakes.
Blackberry & Sage Spritzer
If you’re looking to quench your thirst after a scenic fall hike, reach for this blackberry and sage spritzer courtesy of The Kitchn. Collect honey, sage leaves, blackberries, and sparkling water. First, you’re going to heat honey and water on the stove over medium heat until it begins to boil. Remove from the heat and add the whole sage leaves and blackberries. Finally, blend the mixture, strain, and then place in the fridge until cooled. Pour atop cubes, garnish with sage, and enjoy.
Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktail
After a long day, head to the bar cart and pour up a festive fall cocktail. This apple cider bourbon libation from A Couple Cooks does the trick with smooth bourbon and spiced cider. You’re going to combine bourbon, cider, sweet vermouth, and lemon into a mixing glass and stir with ice. Strain into your glass of choice (we recommend a coupe) and then add a dash of orange bitters and garnish with an apple slice. This cocktail will go great with a roasted chicken or a savory pumpkin soup.
