Cocktails & Tools: Simple Recipes to Celebrate Autumn

Winter is coming… but we have to drink our way through autumn first! The summer sun disappeared too quickly this year and the nights are slowly but surely drawing in. But if cocktail drinkers know anything, it is this – every time of year is a time to celebrate, indulge and enjoy.

Those fresh, summer coolers are no longer suitable, but it’s not quite time for winter warmers just yet! Autumn is a time to appreciate beautiful sunsets and make the most of spirits which share those deep, rich autumnal colours.

With that in mind, here are some simple autumnal recipes, along with suggestions of Beaumont barware you can use to achieve that perfect serve…

Fallen Leaves

This dark brown cocktail encapsulates autumn, mimicking the fallen foliage we see all around us, and it has the name to match!


50ml Calvados
45ml Sweet Vermouth
20ml Dry Vermouth
5ml Cognac

  • Add ingredients to a mixing glass with ice.
  • Stir for 30 seconds with a cocktail spoon – read our recent blog for some tips on stirring technique here!

  • Strain into a chilled glass – explore the Beaumont range of strainers here.
  • To garnish, twist a piece of lemon peel – the Beaumont Zester and Canale Cutter is great for producing tantalizing twists…
