Cocktails for autumn

As the sultry days of summer transition into the cool days of autumn, our tastes in drinks change too. When it’s time to transition, there are a number of fantastic cocktail recipes you can make at this time. The cool autumn winds are blowing in and we tend to look for warm drinks to help the body beat the new cold. We are also inclined to choose flavours from the autumn season, such as sweet apples or fruity berries.

There’s just something about the leaves starting to turn colour and a crisp breeze in the air that makes you want to throw on a thick jumper and sit by the fire – preferably with an autumn cocktail in hand. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic drink or prefer a tequila cocktail, we’ve rounded up incredible autumn cocktail recipes that will have you covered for any weekend during the most beautiful time of year.

Which cocktails are perfect for autumn?

From timeless options like the Manhattans Cocktail to newer drinks like the Gin Basil Smach, these recipes will see you through autumn and into winter. Grab your partner and an autumn cocktail and get cosy in front of the fire!
