Nothing better to get you through the long autumn nights than a delicious fall-inspired beverage. Here are our Top Fall Drink Recipes for 2013.

Bourbon Chai

The rich, spicy warmth of chai is a perfect drink for a cold winter's day — and it's made even more warming with the addition of a bourbon like Maker's Mark, whose notes of clove, vanilla, and caramel marry perfectly with the ingredients in the chai.



  • 6 cups prepared Chai tea
  • 6 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • ⅓ cup honey or agave
  • 1 cup spice-forward bourbon, like Maker's Mark


Make the chai: In a 4-quart saucepan, combine tea pod with 6 cups hot water.

Simmer over medium-high heat and add almond milk & honey or agave, whisking quickly.

Remove from heat, & steep 10-15 minutes.

Strain thoroughly.

Ladle chai into individual mugs and portion 1 oz. bourbon into each.

Hopefully these recipes will get you through those long, chilly nights. Just remember that swimsuit season will be back around in no time.


Nothing says October like a good Frankenstein reference. Sure to be a hit at any Halloween gathering, this cocktail has notes of melon and its anagram counterpart, lemon. Simple and saucy, this recipe is sure to serve up a kick this Halloween season.


  • 1 ounce. Midori Melon Liqueur
  • 2 ounce sweet and sour mix
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • Lemon wedge


Pour all ingredients into a glass filled with ice.


Garnish with a lemon wedge.

The Zombie

The perfect drink to kick off any Halloween party. This drink was created in the late 1930’s trying to cure a hangover! After reading the ingredient list, we have no idea how it could. At least four different rums combine for this deliciously daring drink. We wish you luck.


  • 1/2 oz white rum
  • 1 1/2 ozs golden rum
  • 1 oz dark rum
  • 1/2 oz 151-proof rum
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 tsp pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp papaya juice
  • 1 tsp sugar


Stir together all the ingredients except the 151 and pour into a 14-ounce glass 3/4 full of cracked ice.

Float the 151 ontop (by pouring it into a spoon and gently dipping it under the surface of the drink).

Garnish with mint and/or fruit.
