What to drink in autumn?
The days are gradually getting shorter again and autumn is just around the corner. No more warm sunshine and blue skies, instead a harsh, cold wind is now blowing.
The time for sparkling summer cocktails is over for the time being. Instead, you’re in the mood for heart-warming drinks that will put a smile on your face despite the gloomy weather.
We have 5 autumn drinks for you to make the cold days really cosy. Whether it’s a warm or sparkling cocktail or simply enjoying autumnal spirits neat – there’s something for everyone here.
1. Irish Coffee
The Irish Coffee is an absolute classic. Prepared with wonderfully fragrant and warm coffee, it warms the heart and soul. Whether as a warm-up after an autumn walk or as a drink to make yourself cosy indoors while the wind whirls up the colourful leaves outside, Irish coffee is simply perfect for autumn. With these ingredients, you can easily make it at home:
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Irish whisky
- 1 cup of coffee
- whipped cream
First mix the sugar together with the whisky. Then pour in the warm coffee until just below the rim. Then whip the cream and pour it on top of the drink. Sit back and enjoy!
2. Espresso Martini
We’ll stick to coffee for now. You can also make cold days cosy with an Espresso Martini. Because the taste of coffee immediately makes you feel good. Despite the ice cubes, this drink is also simply heart-warming.
- 3cl coffee liqueur
- 3cl vodka
- 3cl espresso
- ice cubes
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker. Shake vigorously and pour into a martini glass. Decorate with coffee beans as desired. Done!
3. Bring light into your autumn
With the autumn edition of the bright yellow Ungava Gin, you can bring a little light into rainy autumn days. Because here the Canadian gin comes together with a lantern that immediately puts you in the autumn mood as a little outdoor highlight. Whether you drink it neat, with your favourite tonic or over ice. Ungava Gin with Lantern is the gin for cold autumn days.
4. Apple cocktail
What goes better with autumn than the taste of sweet and ripe apples? Autumn time is harvest time!
That’s why the apple cocktail is our next top drink for autumn. This autumn drink is particularly suitable for those days when the sun does make an appearance after all. Enjoy these hours with a sparkling cocktail.
- 1 green apple
- 100ml apple juice
- 1 organgen peel
- 6 tbsp Calvados
- 350ml chilled Prosecco
Wash and core the apple and cut into small pieces. Grate the orange slice and mix with apple juice and Calvados. Add the apples to the mixture and top up with Prosecco.
5. The sweet taste of Apple Pie
Even better than the sweet apples themselves is a deliciously warm apple pie. Of course, this is also a must in autumn. Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Apple Pie not only gives you this taste in liquid form, but also makes you look forward to the Christmas season. Ole Smoky is not only a treat on its own, but is also perfect for conjuring up delicious cocktails.
