Cocktails To Savor The Flavors Of Fall

Autumn is quickly approaching which means sweater weather and some very sexy fall flavors.

Whether you are having friends over to watch football, sitting around the fire pit on a starry night or just enjoying a pretty fall day, these autumn-inspired cocktails feature some of the most iconic flavors of the season – maple, caramel, apple.

To conjure up these cocktails you will need some Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky,  a premium small-batch Canadian whisky that marries 3-, 5- and 7-year old rye whiskies with pure “Canada 1 Light” maple syrup tapped at the first hint of spring in Quebec.  You will also need Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka and Van Gogh Wild Appel Vodka, handcrafted with the finest ingredients in Holland by third-generation Master Distiller Tim Vos at the Cooymans Distillery in Tilburg. 

As you sip these cocktails make sure that you burn some vanilla extract or a blend myrrh and sweet orange  essential oil to get a full sensory experience.  Cheers!
