3 'Changing Leaf' Cocktails Perfect for Fall

By

The thing about autumn leaf-peeping season is that it comes up quick, and it’s over before you know it. So if you look up at some point this fall and realize you missed it—or if you don’t live in a place where the leaves change—here’s a worthy consolation prize: three signature cocktails color-graded to match the changing leaves of autumn, and featuring flavors and ingredients paired perfectly with the season.

We asked New York City bartender Tonia Guffey to use the apple-infused variants Seagram’s 7 Orchard Apple, Crown Royal Regal Apple, and Cîroc Apple to develop three recipes that not only matched the flavors and colors of the season, but were also delicious and easy to make.

She accepted the challenge, and as you’ll see, smashed it like a pumpkin.

With apple-infused whiskey at its base, this concoction gets sharp sweetness from the cinnamon, fresh tartness from the lemon juice, and complex notes of toffee, plum, and raisin from the sherry. It lives up to its name in every way possible.

Lemon Juice
Cinnamon syrup

With more than 7,000 varieties in existence, apples are available year-round in the modern world. But they will forever be associated with fall, of course, and this golden-hued autumn cocktail celebrates that fact with a base of Crown Royal Regal Apple Whisky, topped by a splash of dry hard cider. In between, there’s a tart-sweet blend of fresh lemon juice and honey, and a bracingly aromatic touch of bitter herbal Italian amaro.

Lemon Juice
Fernet Branca

Vivid in both taste and appearance, this tall sipper combines the delicate green-apple notes of Cîroc Apple with the subtly sweet orange accents of a bitter Italian aperitif. Fresh lemon juice and grenadine broaden the flavor profile, while a top-off of soda water brings refreshing-tasting effervescence.
