DC friends! If you enjoy delicious cocktails, please join my husband (and our resident cocktail expert) Andrew for a fall cocktail demonstration at Red Barn Mercantile this Thursday, October 18! You’ll get to sample three fantastic fall cocktails, plus Andy will show you how to make each cocktail – and send you home with plenty of tips for making delicious drinks at home! You can sign up for the fall cocktail class right here. We’ll also have a selection of our vintage glassware available for purchase at the workshop and through the rest of the weekend, so even if you can’t make it to the class you should totally go check it out in person! Old Town Alexandria is always ridiculously charming, especially in the fall.
And now that fall weather has DEFINITELY arrived here in DC, it’s the perfect time to round up some of our favorite fall cocktail recipes!
The Stone Fence // Bourbon-Pear Vanilla Bean Smash
Chocolate-Fig Old Fashioned // The Manhattan
Whiskey Smash // A Rum Stone Fence
The Robert Frost // Orange Vanilla-Bean Scotch Smash
Each of these recipes is absolutely delicious – no matter which one you choose, you can’t go wrong! I’m partial to the smashes (only require a few ingredients and are SO good), the Robert Frost is a crowd pleaser (you’ll get to taste one if you come to Thursday’s cocktail class!), and the Mulled Daiquiri is the perfect way to transition from summer to fall.
BTW – I know we haven’t done any cocktail recipes lately. Life got kind of hectic and we let them slide, but would you be interested in seeing them come back? I know some of you really enjoyed them, and they continue to be some of our most popular pins on Pinterest, so hopefully we can bring them back soon if some of you are interested!
