Fall Manhattan

This elegant beauty from Martha Stewart Weddings packs in a whole slew of flavors, beginning with applejack, a beverage made from freeze-distilled cider and used as currency to pay road construction crews in colonial times.  Shake it up with rye, maple syrup, orange bitters, and champagne, garnish with a blood-orange rind, and you’ve got yourself a Manhattan like you’ve never tasted before.

The Apple Cider Margarita

An autumnal margarita might sound like a stretch at first, but this sweet concoction is the perfect drink to carry you over from summer into the new season.  Tequila and Grand Marnier are mixed with apple cider and orange juice, then garnished with generous cinnamon sticks, pumpkin spice, sugar, and fresh oranges and apples for a festive sweet & spicy treat.
