We’re celebrating September’s cooling temperatures by showcasing seasonal fruits in some tasty beverages. Mix up one of these recipes at your next get-together and raise a glass to autumn.
This bright, sweet drink only sounds gory — with a frozen berry puree and sparkling water, it makes a sweet Halloween party treat for kids and adults.
Cranberry and pomegranate juices give this fizzy beverage a gorgeous plum color that’s perfect for fall. Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds for a fancy touch.
|Spiced Hard Apple Cider
Cloves, cardamom and star anise lend their festive flavors to hard apple cider in this seasonal cocktail. Served chilled, it’s a nice variation on traditional hot cider.

|White Grape Splash
Drop red and green grapes into glasses when serving this fall beverage. Try substituting sparkling wine for sparkling water at a cocktail party.
