Celebrate the First Day of Fall with the Best Fall Drinks
This year, the Fall Equinox lands on September 22nd, making it the first official day of fall. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite drinks to enjoy while you partake in your favorite fall activities – from hosting a bonfire to watching football games, carving pumpkins, or raking leaves, these drinks will add that extra dash of autumn to your day.
Spiked Apple Cider
This easy, classic fall drink is a great way to kick off the season and relax with a few friends.
½ C. Cal F. Johnson Black Mountain Rum
½ C. cinnamon snaps
4 C. apple cider
1 apple peeled and cut into large chunks
½ lemon, juiced
Mix the rum, snaps, and cider in a Crock Pot or large pot on the stove for 3-4 hours. Add the apple chunks to a bowl and toss them with the lemon juice. Thread the sliced apples onto skewers. Pour the spiked cider into a mug. Garnish with the skewered apple slices.
Peach Cobbler Moonshine
Our peach moonshine puts peach cobbler to the test – trust us.
1 ½ C. Dumplin Creek Red Haven Peach Moonshine
0.5-gallon white grape juice
½ C. peach juice
1 C. brown sugar
3-4 ripe peaches, peeled
3 cinnamon sticks
Mint for garnish
Add the juices, brown sugar, peaches, and cinnamon sticks to a large pot. Bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes or until the brown sugar has dissolved. Allow the mixture to sit until it is room temperature. After the mixture has cooled, add in the peach moonshine and stir. Serve over ice with a peach and mint garnish.
