Apple Moscow Mule
Classic Moscow Mules are the perfect drink for summer but they don’t exactly suit the cooler weather of fall. Luckily, there’s a fall-themed alternative in the form of the Apple Moscow Mule! Follow this simple recipe and in no time, you’ll have a festive drink that you and your friends will adore.
- 1 sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1 shake of nutmeg
- Ice cubes or crushed ice
- ½ cup of ginger beer
- ½ cup of apple juice
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- 1 cinnamon stick and 1 slice of apple for garnish
First, sprinkle a dash of cinnamon and a small amount of nutmeg into a glass. You just need enough to lightly coat the inside of the glass, so make sure not to go overboard! Next, pour in the ginger beer, apple juice, lemon juice, and ice into the glass. After that, mix it together, and garnish with a cinnamon stick and slice of fresh apple.
Pumpkin Spice Mocktail
Is there anything more quintessentially fall than a Pumpkin Spice Mocktail? We don’t think so! Try out this recipe the next time you need something simple, delicious, and comforting.
- 5 ounce can of ginger ale
- ¼ cup of pumpkin puree
- ½ teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
Start by pouring the ginger ale into 2 glasses. Then, in a small bowl, you should combine the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract. After that, simply mix everything together and add a dash of ice. It’s that easy!
Ginger, Brown Sugar, and Verjus Mocktail
This yummy mocktail might have a long name but the prep time is anything but that.
- ¼ cup of light brown sugar
- ¼ cup of water
- ¼ cup of verjus
- 1 cup of ginger ale
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
- 2 cups of crushed ice
To begin, combine the light brown sugar and water into a bowl and then microwave it for 30 seconds, or until the sugar dissolves.
Next, add this concoction to a mixing glass along with the verjus, ginger ale, and vanilla extract. Go ahead and fill four glasses with crushed ice and set them aside for a moment. Now you can stir your drink mixture together and divvy it up between the four glasses. All done!
