All About Apples
Autumn’s iconic fruit, apples, are a lovely way to celebrate the season in your wedding drink. No wonder they are the stars of 5 out of these 10 recipes we found.
You could go with Tangerine Apple Cider Cocktails (1) prettied up with pomegranate seeds, apple slices and cinnamon sticks; or Sparkling Spiced Apple Juice (2) made with chai simple syrup and served with spiced apple crisps.
Punch is another option you can consider with apples. Look at this selection! Non-alcoholic Apple Pie Punch (3), Sparkling Ginger Apple Punch with Muddled Cranberries (4), or Sparkling Apple Cider Punch (5). Great for serving a large guest list, too!
Pumpkin and Pear
Just like apples, pumpkins and pears are synonymous with fall! Choose a dessert-drink like Pumpkin Pie Cream Soda (6) or Sparkling Pear Punch (7) with added zing from lemon juice and bubbly ginger ale.
Sweetness of the Season
Want a drink that combines berry flavors with fall-inspired sweeteners like maple and honey? We found 2 of them: a Blueberry Maple Mojito Mocktail (8) combining blueberry juice, fresh mint, tart lime and maple syrup; and a Honey Blackberry Mint Mocktail (9) that includes fresh blackberries, muddled mint leaves, and lemon juice, sweetened with honey and made fizzy with seltzer.
Finally, for a creamy choice, you might try Maple Milk Punch (10). It uses almond milk, maple syrup and cinnamon syrup, poured into ice-filled glasses with brown sugar and cinnamon powder on the rim.
