10 Fall-Inspired Cocktails Slideshow

Boston Bog

Tart cranberries feature with Jamaican rum in this seasonal sip that also adds ginger syrup for spicy depth and apricot liqueur for a well-balanced kiss of sweetness.

Chanterelle Vodka

Channel your inner forager with this savory, chanterelle-infused vodka. Enjoy it by itself or served straight up in a martini.

Cinnamon and Walnut Bitters

Maryse Chevriere

Making your own bitters at home is easier than you think. Try your hand at this starter recipe, then use the finished product as the final accent in the Scotch-based Highland Sage Cocktail.

Concord Companion

Arthur Bovino

Concord grapes and absinthe seem to have a natural affinity for each other, that PDT's Jim Meehan loves to feature when the grapes are in season. In this cocktail, an apéritif called Bonal Quinquina, fresh lemon juice, and Beefeater gin, support the strong pairing.

The Great Pumpkin

Arthur Bovino

Pumpkin ale, rye whiskey, apple brandy, and maple syrup feature in this seasonal take on a classic flip. The light, foamy texture is reminiscent of eggnog, only slightly thinner.

Hot Apple Jammy

Maryse Chevriere

This hot cocktail, which combines spiced rum, apple cider, and cinnamon tastes just like a boozy slice of warm apple pie. (Seriously, it's even served with fresh whipped cream on top to seal the deal.)

Maple Syrup Toddy

For this New England-inspired take on the classic toddy, bartender John Ginnetti uses Laird's applejack and sweetens the mixture with pure maple syrup. And in a creative turn, sweet vermouth and Averna, an Italian amaro, are used in the place of steeping the traditional spices.

Pomegranate Mulled Wine

Maryse Chevriere

Pomegranate liqueur adds a bright, slightly tart, fruit-forward flavor to this variation on mulled wine from New York's New Leaf Restaurant & Bar.

Peruvian Pear Cobbler

Arthur Bovino

Bright elderflower liqueur, bitter amaro, and pear-infused cognac combine as savory, bittersweet accents in this Peruvian pisco-based cobbler. But it's the slice of fresh pear and dusting of nutmeg and cinnamon that really bring in the taste of fall.

Rayuela's Pear Cider

This warm cider, originally on the menu at New York's Rayela, features Xanté pear liqueur and apple cider and is garnished with a cinnamon stick.
