Cheers to Fall!

"I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure." - Mae West 

A wonderful way to add personal flair to an occasion is by showcasing a signature cocktail. The blend being served should be based on the guest(s) of honour, type of event, and time of the season. And since drinking out of a martini glass has a certain "je ne sais quoi" about it, we'd like to share some of our fave autumn-inspired mixtures.  

Apple Tart-tini

  • 2 oz. citrus vodka
  • 1/2 oz. DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker schnapps
  • 1/2 oz. Cointreau orange liqueur 
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake well with ice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with an apple slice.

 Banana Bread-ini
  • 1 oz. Frangelico liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. banana liqueur
  • 1 oz. biscotti liqueur
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 banana sprinkled with cinnamon
Combine all ingredients except the banana in a shaker. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with 1/2 banana sprinkled with cinnamon.

 Pumpkin Pie-tini
  • 1/2 oz. Sylk Cream Liqueur
  • 2 oz. vanilla vodka
  • 1/2 oz. pumpkin liqueur or pumpkin spice syrup
  • 1 tsp. whipped cream
  • A cinnamon stick

Pour the Sylk Liqueur and vodka into a shaker and shake well with ice. Add the pumpkin liqueur or syrup and shake again. Strain into a martini glass. Top with whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon stick.

Hope you enjoy these sweet sips.

Until next time,

A & S
