5 Fall Cocktails You Should be Drinking
When you need a little more fall kick than a pumpkin spice latte.
Fall is in the air, and it smells like pumpkin spice (yes, PSLs are back for the season at your local Starbucks). For something a little harder, these are the drinks you should be grabbing after work.
The Harvest Moon from Drake’s
With the weather cooling off, Drake’s is keeping it cozy with Jim Beam Apple, apricot brandy, ginger liqueur, cranberry juice, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and fresh apples served in a jar. 3740 E. 82nd St., 317-436-7531
The Washington Apple from Marco’s
Apples are an essential fruit for the fall festivities; they just aren’t in the pie this time. With apple schnapps and cranberry juice mixed with Crown Royal, Marco’s is putting autumn in a glass. 2380 E. 54th St., 317-251-7000
The Applewood-Smoked Martini from Meridian Restaurant & Bar
