As we move into the fall season, it’s time to retire those light fruity drinks and pour up some delicious fall cocktails that will make you feel nice and toasty inside. Below are three yummy cocktails made from my three favorite spirits — Whiskey, Rum, and Tequila.
For the WhiskeyLover – You can use your favorite Rye, Bourbon or Scotch plus some ingredients you already have in your liquor cabinet to concoct this very sexy and soulful Manhattan cocktail. Nothing makes me feel more like a bad ass New Yorker than imbibing a classic drink.

Rum isn’t just for mojitos and coke, it’s an increasingly popular spirit that is taking the spirits industry by storm. Nothing beats a rum hot toddy on a cold day or after a brisk hike, plus if you’re feeling under the weather it has some medicinal properties.

Tequila makes a delicious fall cocktail especially if you use the smoky mezcal. When this spirit is paired with fall aromatic ingredients like cinnamon, cardamom and a ginger liqueur it makes you want to cozy up to the fireplace with a good book or catching up with one of your best girlfriends. Try this Ginger’s Lost Island for the perfect blend of all the ingredients.
