BEST FALL DRINKS TO SHARE WITH YOUR VINAS

Even though I’m 100% summer person and very much dislike cold, there’s something magical about Fall. Cuddling under the blankets watching HGTV or binging Netflix  while sipping something DELISH. So, for all you vinas like me, I’ve gathered some delicious fall drinks to make for your friends (or, you know, enjoy by yourself too):

APPLE CIDER MIMOSAS

2 tbsp coconut sugar

1 tbsp ground cinnamon

1 cup apple cider

1 bottle champagne

On a small plate, combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip champagne flutes in water to wet the rims, then dip in cinnamon sugar mixture. Fill champagne flutes 1/4 full with apple cider, then top off with champagne.

CARAMEL APPLE MARTINI

1 cup apple cider

1/2 cup caramel vodka

1/4 cup butterscotch schnapps

Sliced fresh apple, caramel, and / or cinnamon sugar for garnish.

Rim your martini glass with caramel or cinnamon sugar, or both. To get the cinnamon sugar to stick to the glass, dip the rim in a little apple cider first. Combine the apple cider, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour into the rimmed martini glass and garnish with a thin slice of apple.
