It appears the seasons have changed overnight, and while we aren’t complaining about the cooler temperatures, we aren’t sure what to drink at happy hour anymore, as frozen cocktails and gin and tonics seem like things of the past. It may seem like a longshot, what with their warm Southern weather, but mixologists at the renowned bar Thoroughbred Club, in Charleston Place Hotel in Charleston, S.C., have come up with two fall cocktails that are sure to warm you up.

Thoroughbred Club’s mixologists are devotees of classic beverages livened by new twists. These drinks have names like "Hot Buttered Cider" and "The Harvard Warmer," so we’re certain they will not only warm you from the inside, but will also leave you feeling awfully accomplished when they’re made at home. If you’re an adventurous cocktail drinker, you won’t have any qualms about infusing Wild Turkey bourbon with cinnamon and vanilla in an American honey jar to make the Hot Buttered Cider — a simple trick that can be used for many other seasonal cocktails. But for the novices, the Harvard Warmer probably won’t make you smarter, but it will be flavorful and warming on cold fall days.

Fall for Disaronno with these Easy Cocktails

I distinctly remember my first taste of Disaronno. It was college friend’s 21st birthday and he invited a few people over for a pre-bar drink. It’s college, we’re broke, and although we attend the Culinary Institute of America, our knowledge of alcohol is still pretty limited. I bring a cake that I expect will pair well with the free bottle of wine leftover from Wines Class or cheap beer. Nope. I’ve got it all wrong. Instead, he pours glasses of the amaretto liqueur over ice and passes them around. I immediately wonder if he’s turning 61 instead of 21.

The first sip washed over my tongue smoothly, bringing sweetness and notes of fruits, while hints of almonds and vanilla wafted up my nose. My friend was ahead of his time. He knew what he was doing. It even paired well with the cake! And this is the night I fell for Disaronno. We even managed to skip the crowded, grimy college bar and stayed in for more cake and another glass of Italian amaretto.

Disaronno is easy to love and easy to incorporate into cocktails or enjoy on its own.

Fun Disaronno Facts

Disaronno has been made since 1525 and it’s the world’s favorite Italian liqueur, distributed in 160 countries.

Can’t do nuts? No Problem! Although almond-forward in flavor, Disaronno doesn’t contain any almonds. Not only is it almond-free, it is also 100% nut-free, gluten-free and Kosher-certified. Disaronno for all!

It is perfectly smooth, on the rocks, or with the addition of lemon, proving its versatility in great classics such as the Godfather, Disaronno Sour, as well as other intriguing and innovative cocktails.

No one knows Disaronno’s recipe – except for three people. A secret formula was handed down from generation to generation, with no exceptions to who can get their hands on it.

The Disaronno bottle has a unique design and a cap that was inspired by and they partnered with Fashion Houses like Versace, Moschino, Etro & Missoni to create it.

Here are our favorite cozy fall cocktails to warm you up.

Note: We've listed ingredients you can easily shop online, but perishables and produce we recommend buying in stores.

For the first few weeks of fall when warmer summer temperatures still linger, a slightly tart and refreshing fall cocktail is what we crave.

If you're hosting friends and family for happy hour or looking for an easy-to-make batched fall cocktail, look no further than this creative Boozy Apple Cider recipe from our friends at Delish. This recipe uses actual hollowed-out apples as the glassware, which means 1) yes, you can eat the cup, and 2) cleanup just got a whole lot easier. Apple cider, cinnamon, and whiskey? Yes, please!

Boozy Apple Cider


  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 1 ½ cups cinnamon whiskey, such as Fireball
  • ½ cup caramel
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish
  • 8 fresh apples
  • Fresh lemon juice, for brushing

In a slow cooker, combine apple cider, whiskey, cinnamon sticks, and caramel. Cook on low until warmed through, about 2-3 hours.

To make apple cups: Slice off the top of each apple. Use an apple corer to remove the inside of the apple until you&rsquore about a half-inch from the bottom of the apple. Squeeze lemon juice inside the apple cups to prevent apples from browning.

Ladle hot cider into apple cups. Garnish with cinnamon sticks, and serve immediately.

Fall from the Tree

The autumn season brings cravings of hearty soups, warm roasts and aromatic spices. But don’t let your meals have all the fun. You can also infuse fall into your cocktails by using seasonal ingredients like apples and cinnamon. That’s what you will find in Fall from the Tree, an original recipe from bartender Jim Kearns that he created while working at The Happiest Hour in New York City.

“It’s an autumnal mix of baking spice, apple and brown spirits,” says Kearns. “It’s served the way we make all of our signature cocktails at The Happiest Hour, by combining the secondary ingredients first and then allowing guests to pick their base spirit.” Kearns like to use applejack for an extra dose of apple, but you can also try bourbon or scotch for good results. Your chosen spirit is then mixed with fresh apple juice, fresh lemon juice, cinnamon syrup and aromatic bitters.

If you have a juicer at home, you can extract that apple juice yourself. Otherwise, try to procure some good juice from a green grocer, market or juice bar. It’s worth the effort, as fresh apple juice will add that seasonal sweetness you want alongside the tart lemon and kicky cinnamon.

Make the drink with the portions below, if you’re only serving a party of one. But if you are serving a crowd, you can easily scale up the recipe as needed to accommodate your guests, or even make a couple versions featuring different spirits. That way, you can see how the base liquor changes the final product while still maintaining that fall flavor profile you want.
