As we enter the Fall season, it’s time to break out all the Fall flavors, including in your cocktails. Fall means bringing out the apple, pumpkin, and warm spiced flavors we all know and love. Fall cocktails are great for entertaining, holidays, or whenever you want to try something new.
Tequila isn’t just great in margaritas during the summer. There are plenty of delicious Fall cocktails you can make with tequila. Take a look at the best Fall tequila cocktails.
Easy Apple Cider Margaritas
This easy apple cider margarita recipe only requires four ingredients, and you can make it in minutes. This sweet cocktail only requires your favorite tequila, ginger beer, apple cider, and lime juice. The lime juice helps cut the sweetness a little. The recipe makes a pitcher, so it’s perfect for bringing to parties.
Spiced Apple Margaritas
If you’re looking for an elevated apple margarita recipe, these spiced apple margaritas must be on your must-try list. What makes them so unique is the reposado tequila. You can use either apple juice or cider, and you’ll need honey, lime juice, and cinnamon. If you want to get fancy, try adding a coconut and cinnamon sugar rim before serving.
Cinnamon Grapefruit Paloma (with a cinnamon salty sugar rim!)
Grapefruit Palomas are refreshing, and if you love them but are looking for a way to add a little Fall flavor to them, this cinnamon grapefruit Paloma is the way to go. It’s slightly more complicated because you’ll need to make cinnamon simple syrup, but combining that ingredient, tequila, Grand Marnier, orange, and grapefruit juice make it refreshing yet cozy.
El Diablo Cocktail
El Diablo cocktail is a pink cocktail that might not look like a Fall drink at first, but when you taste it, it screams Fall. It’s super easy to make, so you can whip it up in minutes when you need an impressive cocktail. Use reposado tequila, crème de cassis, ginger beer, and fresh lime juice. The recipe only makes one, but you can easily change the measurements to make more.
Cinnamon Tequila Sour
For tequila sour lovers, this cinnamon tequila sour will be your favorite Fall cocktail throughout the season. The drink is effortless to make, even with the addition of egg whites. If you want to simplify it, just omit the egg whites. All you’ll need is your favorite tequila, simple syrup, lime juice, and cinnamon.
Another excellent Fall margarita recipe comes from Patron Tequila. It’s slightly more complicated to make only because it has more ingredients. It makes one serving, but you can easily make more depending on how many you need. The Ilegal Mezcal Joven, citronge orange liqueur, and maple syrup make this maple margarita delicious and taste like Fall.
Sparkling Blood Orange Margarita
Blood oranges are perfect with tequila; although they're citrusy, they're a great flavor for Fall. You can make these margaritas in 15 minutes or less, depending on how fast you work. Freshly squeezed blood oranges are the best, but pre-squeezed will do. Adding orange liqueur, club soda, and simple syrup make this margarita fantastic.
Honey Pear Margarita
Pears are another excellent flavor for Fall, and the combination of sweetness from the pear and honey makes this margarita delightful. The best part is it's not too sweet, thanks to the lime juice, tequila, and rosemary garnish. It only takes five minutes to make four.
False Start Reposado Tequila Cocktail Recipe
False Start is a stirred tequila drink that, despite the bitter and deep flavors, tastes pretty light. The recipe makes one serving, but you can easily double it. Compared to some of the other Fall tequila cocktails, this one takes a bit longer to make since you need to muddle the cucumbers, but it's worth it. Don't forget to save a cucumber slice or two for garnishes!
Cranberry Margarita With Apple-Cinnamon Tequila
This next cocktail will take more prep work than the others because you'll need to make apple-cinnamon tequila. You'll do this by infusing the tequila with the flavors for five to seven days. But, once the tequila is done, the recipe is simple, and you'll have a delicious margarita in minutes.
El Mayor Tequila Dinner and Best Tequila Drinks
Spiced pear screams Fall, and this delicious, sweet yet tame cocktail is one you must try before the season’s over. The combination of honey, vanilla extract, and pear nectar elevate this drink, and it’s perfect if you’re ready to impress people at a holiday party.
Apple Cider Margarita | Perfect Fall Cocktail
Who doesn't love apple cider in the Fall? If you love apple cider but want to make it boozy, apple cider margaritas might be your new favorite combination. This simple recipe only requires three ingredients, so be ready for a great drink in five minutes or less. If you're feeling fancy, add a cinnamon sugar rim and apple slices.
Manzanasada is a refreshing yet warm cocktail that combines tequila and mezcal as the main spirits. Like some other Fall tequila cocktails, you'll need apple cider, ginger beer, and lemon juice as mixers. Red apples make the perfect garnish for the drink, but you can go with green if you want a more tart garnish.
These Fall tequila cocktails are sure to spice up any gathering you’re having or night in with friends.
