Thirsty Thursday: A Cocktail to Get You Excited About Fall

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

What to do when the hot summer days are behind us, and those slushy, boozed-up punches with party straws and umbrellas are no longer fitting for the season? Well, we stir ourselves up a fall-fashioned cocktail to welcome in the new season!

Now that it’s officially fall and we are swapping in amber leaves for summer sun, try this cocktail with a deep, burnt-orange hue that mimics Autumn Colors. This fall-inspired sip gets its color from pomegranate liqueur and sweet ice tea mixed with vodka and orange zest. Its crisp taste reminds us of the cooling air that characterizes the fall harvest season.

Bottoms up, folks.
