- Time Commitment: 10 minutes
- Alcohol: Champagne
Who needs to steal from the kids’ candy hauls when you have salted caramel sauce? Garnish with an apple slice or pomegranate arils.
- Time Commitment: 30 minutes (plus infusing time)
- Alcohol: rum
This one requires a bit of forethought, but it'll be well worth it. Infuse the rum at least a day ahead of serving it, and make the chai syrup the night before so it has time to cool.
- Time Commitment: 8 hours and 20 minutes
- Alcohol: rum or brandy
Horchata is to fall as eggnog is to winter, and it's easier to make from scratch than you think. Bonus: This one’s totally vegan.
- Time Commitment: 1 hour and 30 minutes
- Alcohol: vodka, spiced rum
You may be too old to go door to door for candy, but you still deserve a treat this Halloween. The boozy bev gets tastier the longer it sits, so make a jar for a friend (and a jar for yourself) to sip all autumn long.
- Time Commitment: 5 minutes
- Alcohol: pear vodka, amaretto
So fancy, yet so simple. Rub a fresh pear slice around the rim of each glass, roll it in cinnamon sugar, then garnish with the same pear slice.
