Delightful Autumn Cocktails
The nights are drawing in and the leaves are scattering the parks like golden blankets. With Autumn now in full swing and bonfire night just around the corner, what could be better than whipping up some sumptuous Autumnal delights for your friends.
The flavours of Autumn are warm, comforting and mourish. Think caramelised apples, pumpkin spice and cream.
Here are three stunning cocktail creations to really get you in the spirit of the season!
50ml Beefeater Gin
10ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
Squeeze of Agave nectar
Sparkling apple cider
Garnished with Thyme and apple
Pour gin in shaker, add lemon juice and agave nectar, shake, and then pour into a high ball glass and top with sparkling cider. Garnish with fresh thyme and an apple slice.
Salted Caramel White Russians
50ml coffee liqueur
100ml of whole milk, half n half, or cream
Caramel sauce for garnish

To make these, start by rimming your glass in a little caramel sauce and a bit of coarse sea salt. Then, drizzle caramel on the inside of your glass. You can never really have enough caramel.
