Fall is one of my favorite season of them all. I’ve shared many times why I tend to look forward to autumn every year, but this time when I opine, I will be sharing some Fall cocktail recipes that will have you ready for leaves turning colors, sweater weather, and curling up in front of the fire place with a good book and a drink or two.
I am all for a Homemade Happy Hour after a long day at work, and these Fall cocktail recipes are just what the doctor ordered to have you feeling all warm and fuzzy and whatnot.
Let’s get into it!
Delight and savor and get into the season with these 12 Fall Cocktails that are autumn approved:

Frankenstein Green Halloween Cocktail
Brooklyn Active Mama’s green and ghoulish cocktail had me at hello. It is oh-so creative and perfect for Halloween or even any other day in the Fall for that matter.

Fall Fresh Margarita with Apple Cider
Who can say no to margaritas? Known as a refreshing treat, it can be remade into an autumn treat with some apple cider and cinnamon sticks. Vera over at Lady And the Blog is sharing her tried and true cocktail recipe for Fall Fresh Margaritas, and it is perfect for parties.
Holiday Kahlúa Gingerbread Cookie Cocktails
Gingerbread is a Fall and Winter staple and can really shake up a martini. Kahlúa Gingerbread is available in limited quantities during the holiday season, but if you can get your hands on it, you have to recreate this drink. Get the recipe.
Praline Coffee Old Fashioned
This cocktail had me at praline. That sugary New Orleans treat is one of my favorites, and a drink version of it made into an Old Fashioned is an ingenious (and yummy) idea. Tatanisha over at A Worthey Read is sharing a recipe for this liquid goodness that should be a part of your Fall flavorings—for real.
Cinnamon Latte Shots
When I think of Fall, I think of cuddling up in front of the fireplace. This drink from Becca of My Crazy Good Life is autumn in drink form. It’s got coffee in it for the bean lovers and Fireball Whiskey in it for the whiskey lovers, and cinnamon in it for the spice lovers and hits all of the right notes. Get all of the deets on making your own Cinnamon Latte Shots HERE.
Pumpkin Moscow Mule
Sharon from Cupcakes & Cutlery is the Moscow Mule Queen, as she knows how to create them for every occasion. I featured her Halloween Moscow Mule earlier in this post, and after seeing her Pumpkin Moscow Mule, I knew I also needed to add it to this roundup. With only three ingredients, it’s easy to make and so, so good. Get the recipe on her site HERE.
Homemade Hot Toddy
When the weather starts getting cooler, a hot toddy is just the right thing to warm you up and cure what ails you. Made with tea, honey, and Hot Pepper Vodka, it has just the right amount of kick. Learn how to make it HERE.
