Early Autumn Spice

Early Autumn Spice

Football is back, the leaves are starting to change colors, the mornings are brisk, and our Christmas Bourbon is about to hit the stores! In other words, the Autumn season is officially here. We’re so excited to start concocting some fall-inspired cocktails to share with all of you. We’re starting the Autumn season with an Early Autumn Spice cocktail. If you weren’t excited for this time of the year, this cocktail will surely change your mind.

This cocktail consists of our Christmas Bourbon, a little maple syrup, sweet vermouth, lemon juice, cherry liqueur, and some fall-inspired bitters and garnishes. All of these flavors work together to create a smooth-tasting drink that can be enjoyed at any fun, fall activity. The maple syrup makes this cocktail so delectable. It is thicker than simple syrup so be sure to stir really well to get all that flavor to blend in with the rest of the ingredients. The cinnamon stick and cherry garnish make this cocktail look sophisticated and adds an aroma that embodies everything that is Autumn.
