The Apple Crisp Old Fashioned is the BEST New Cocktail for Fall
Bonfires, flannel, and Apple Crisp Old Fashioneds are all you need to celebrate the season.
Around here, Autumn is a really big deal. When Winter lasts until May and Summer is basically mosquito season, you learn to appreciate the Fall more than most.
There's something romantic about it, though. Pumpkin patches and apple picking, blanket scarves and fluffy socks, soups and stews and cuddling on the sofa? What's not to love?
We've waxed poetic about the Wisconsin Old Fashioned before. Even people who "don't like Old Fashioneds" like a Wisconsin Old Fashioned. It's hard to explain. You'll have to try one to understand or just take our word for it. Old Fashioneds hit differently when the wind picks up and the leaves turn colorful.
This recipe doubles-down on those Fall feelings with a splash of Apple Crisp Sugar Free Sinless Syrups. It doesn't just add apple to the Old Fashioned; it adds apple pastry flavors - apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, buttery crumble.
You'll love it.
Throw a Fall-Themed Party
You know the saying, "Make new friends, but keep the old...?" Well, throwing parties is a great way to bridge those relationships. You might find yourself having a proud moment when people you bring together embark on a friendship independent from you.
For our money, there's nothing like a theme party to break the ice at a gathering. You can go simple, like serving food and drinks that correlate to a season or color, or ambitious with games and dress code and prizes.
FALL MENU IDEAS
Some of our favorite foodie themes include Dips-only, Charcuterie Board Pot Luck, and Crock-toberfest.
Dips-only is self-explanatory. Provide a wide range of veggies for dipping so guests can visit flavor town without blowing up their carb count.
If you try the Charcuterie Board route, check out our Sweet & Savory Walnut recipe. It is a definite crowd-pleaser!
For Crocktoberfest, you might have to assign recipes or risk having five crockpots of queso show up. If you aren't going to be mad about that, then go on with your cheesy self, sis.
No matter what menu you plan, the Apple Crisp Old Fashioned makes a perfect signature cocktail. It's fun, easy, and delicious. Also, hosting a themed party with a signature cocktail is so #hostessgoals. Right?
