Even since before we built our bar cabinet, I’ve been interested in making cool cocktails at home. I prefer cocktails over wine and especially beer, but they’re just so pricey when you go out. Around last Christmas, we decided we would buy one bottle of spirits per month so we could create a decent collection without breaking the bank. Some months we’re stocked up on all the main spirits so we buy a nice liqueur or something more outside-the-box. Other months we have to replace a staple in our bar—probably gin. And there are the odd months when we end up buying more than one bottle for a special occasion or special circumstances, like when we were in Italy and bought limoncello and a creamy peach liqueur.
My hope is to start experimenting more with cocktails and finding some truly delicious drinks. I want to have a signature cocktail when we have friends over and right now I’m in the market for a signature cocktail for our Thanksgiving dinner next month.
So, I’ve scoured the internet (mostly Pinterest) and rounded up some truly delicious (and gorgeous) fall cocktails that will warm you to the bone and impress everyone you’re making them for. Now the trouble is I have to pick which one I’m going to make for Thanksgiving!
