Something Delicious is coming your way!

3 Autumn Cocktail Recipes

We love a good cocktail (who doesn't), especially when it's lovely and seasonal. Perfect for autumn weddings, these three cocktails are delicious and easy to make. You can even relive your big day later on by shaking up these cocktail recipes at home!

The Bramble

The Bramble is a classic cocktail, and the berry flavours are perfect for autumn. Blackberries are in season during autumn, so make sure to grab a few fresh ones to garnish your cocktail with.

Ingredients:

  • 60ml gin
  • 30ml lemon juice
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • 15ml creme de mure
  • Lemon slices
  • Fresh blackberries

Method:
Add ice to a cocktail shaker, along with the gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and creme de mure. Shake well, then strain into a tumbler filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a couple of fresh blackberries.

The Gin Espresso Martini

Espresso martinis are usually made with vodka, but we love using gin for a slight twist on a classic cocktail. This drink is the perfect one to get the party started - especially on cold, dark autumn evening - and will make sure your guests are dancing the night away!

Ingredients:

  • 60ml strong Italian coffee
  • 40ml gin
  • 10ml sugar syrup
  • Coffee beans

Method:
Add the coffee, gin and sugar syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard until the cocktail becomes frothy, then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a couple of coffee beans.



The Caramel Apple Sour

Apples are another fruit that's in season during autumn, so anything apple-based is a winner at this time of year - especially if there's a hint of cinnamon spice too! Using rum gives this cocktail a lovely rich, warming flavour.

Ingredients:

  • 40ml dark rum
  • 15ml caramel apple syrup
  • Dash of cinnamon bitters
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • Egg white
  • Grated nutmeg

Method:
Add the rum, syrup, bitters, lemon juice and egg white to a cocktail shaker. Shake well for approximately 15 seconds until a foam forms, then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a sprinkle of grated nutmeg.
