Lately, it seems as if all I’ve been blogging about is Fall! I’m feeling more in the seasonal mood than ever with my home finally completed after all our renovations. (click here to tour my home before renovations!) Everything is ready for decorating for the fall and holiday seasons and I’m beginning to feel more inspired and festive as a result.

One of my favorite parts of Fall happens to include all the entertaining. Over the next few months I find that my friends and I get together more often and spend most of our time inside – either by hanging out at the kitchen island or seated at the dining table. We tend to eat and drink all night long. With the days getting darker earlier, the weather is cooler and the cozy atmosphere is more welcoming… Our time together always leads to great conversations and delicious meals being served with fun cocktails.
This year to help me find the best Autumn themed cocktails I decided to round up 12 of my favorite fall-themed drinks from some of the best bloggers that are sure to “wow” all of our guests.
Drink #1: Caramel Apple Moscow Mules
This weekend we made a fun cocktail that we discovered from Tidy Mom. The Caramel Apple Moscow Mule sounded so yummy… I love anything apple related and Jeff lives for caramel. It was a win win! We used my new glassware from Juliska, the Arabella tumblers that I’m giving away on Instagram (9/16) – Head over there to join the quick 24 hour Giveaway! Love how pretty the tumblers look with the added apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
My favorite everyday glassware from Juliska:
- 6 Arabella Clear Tumblers.. I use these and the blush color for my everyday drinkware! Everyone in my family LOVES the size and shape.. they are so beautiful and perfect for anything from water to dressing up with a cocktail.
- 6 Arabella Petal Pink Tumblers – I love the color on these. So beautiful!
- Amalia 9.5″ Round Pitcher – I use these mouth-blown pitchers for everything.. as a vase, pitcher, and I even leave it on display everyday in my kitchen! It’s the perfect statement piece with a classic look and style.
- Isabella 9.5″ Pitcher – Love the berries and thread take on this pitcher.. it is gorgeous! I use this pitcher for drinks and as a vase as well. One of my newest favorites.
Emma and I made this cocktail on Saturday and fell in LOVE. It’s so simple yet delicious.. and the Caramel Apple theme was fun to style. Click here for the recipe.
Drink #2: Blackberry Bourbon Smash
The Half Baked Harvest blog shares so many great recipes and this Fall drink is no exception! The Blackberry Bourban Smash takes just 5 minutes to make and includes some of our favorite ingredients: blackberries, Bourbon, honey, mint, ginger beer, and more. Click here for the recipe.
Drink #3: Autumn Apple Sangria
Sangria is one of my favorite cocktails.. I’ve even recreated a few of my own throughout the seasons. (Click here for the Peach Strawberry Sangria I made over the summer).

Drink #4: Pumpkin White Russian
One of my dear friends and a truly amazing blogger is Courtney from Pizzazzerie! She creates stunning tablescapes, delicious recipes, and styles like no one’s business.
