Today we are Stirin’ it up with Stir Bartending Co. We hope you love them as much as we do!
There’s a reason Pumpkin Spice Lattes are your guests’ favorite fall guilty pleasure. The classic food pairings of the season are tried-and-true delicious. But when it comes to cocktails to serve at your reception, autumnal flavors provide even more variety. Start with our favorite fall base spirits, such as apple brandy, spiced rum, and gin. Then, think of the bounty of your local farmer’s market and match fruits such as apples and pears with baking spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Those flavors can be enhanced in cocktails by using them in syrups, in modifying liquors such as allspice dram, or even by infusing base spirits with the flavors themselves.
Play with a few of our favorite flavor combinations, such as:
Lemon, ginger, and honey: mix with gin, bourbon, or spiced rum.
Apple, caramel, and pecan: mix with bourbon, rye, or aged rum.
Pumpkin, allspice, and maple: mix with apple brandy, mezcal, or whisky.
You’ll find more examples of recipes on Stir Bartending Co.’s blog page.
For a unique end to the evening, why not follow your reception dinner with a cocktail marrying scotch and coffee? These two are natural partners, as the roasted aroma of coffee plays with the smoke and peat in scotch to create fullness and depth. This after-dinner drink could be served hot or cold, and sweetened with other flavors such as cinnamon and cherry for a lovely autumnal finish. By following the natural pairings of fall flavors, you’ll create a memorable cocktail experience for your celebration.
