Don’t forget to reference it so you can prepare for the upcoming holidays.
If the leaves are changing, so should your bar menu. But don’t worry, there’s still time to enjoy those last-minute summer drinks before it gets too cold and you need a hot toddy. Whether a rum, tequila, vodka, etc. drinker, one of these cocktails will become your go-to for September.
September is filled with National Drink Days so allow these five to be the inspiration for your fall cocktail menu.
Here are five cocktails you’ll want to try during September.
Throughout the month, we are celebrating California Wines. Instead of serving a simple glass of wine to your guests, try switching things up. Salt-rimmed wine glasses allow for a different sipping experience. There are multiple ways to spice it up if you aren’t into plain salt.
National Beer Lovers Day (9/7) is the perfect excuse to experiment mixing spirits with beer. Throughout the past few years, beer cocktails have become increasingly popular. The citrus from the beer pairs delightfully with the sweet strawberry and honeysuckle flavors.
Similar to rum, Cachaça is a spirit that can be distilled in light, dark, and aged variations. Traditionally, you could make a caipirinha to celebrate National Cachaça Day on September 13, but we have something even better.
National Cherries Jubilee Day (9/24) calls for a cherry-inspired cocktail. While this cocktail has cherry blossom syrup rather than cherry jubilee, the same flavor profile is still there. Use this drink as an example for your inspiration for your bar menu.
Last but not least, ending the month with National Hot Mulled Cider Day is the perfect way to transition into the colder days. On September 30, sip a mulled hot rye cider and get cozied up by the fireplace.
