Fall Apple Cocktails
Fall means leaves changing color, pumpkins, sweater weather and of course, apples. And there is no better way to enjoy the flavors of the season than with a festive apple cocktail as the star of the show.
Bank & Bourbon restaurant in Philadelphia, The Regency Bar & Grill in New York and Bar Stilwell in Kansas City, are all offering drinks that make you want to get your apple a day.
With temperatures often still warm at the beginning of fall, it can be hard to choose if your cocktail should be based on the temperature or the season. At Bank & Bourbon, an inherently American restaurant, you get the best of both worlds with Dem Apples, which is a take on an Apple Cider Maple Mezcal Margarita. Promised to please apple lovers and margarita enthusiasts alike, this tequila based cocktail is both warm and refreshing, satisfying all of your taste buds.
Paying homage to The Stilwell Oyster Car, the iconic Pullman car that delivered oysters to KC’s City Market in the late 1800s, Bar Stilwell is the place to go when in Kansas City. Whether you prefer a drink with some extra kick, or just something to sip, the bartenders have created something for everyone to enjoy. Opt for the Loretto Apple Pie cocktail featuring cinnamon infused Makers Mark, apple, pear, Allspice Dram, Demerara and lime or order the Orchard Stroll Mocktail with cinnamon-apple simple syrup, cranberry, orange, lime and soda.
A quintessential New York spot, The Regency Bar & Grill is the place to be see and be seen while sipping your drink. The Past, Present & Future is a must for apple enthusiasts on the new fall cocktail menu. The drink features Glenfiddich 15, Ketel One Citroen, apple, grape and Anise and pairs nicely with many of the new items on the restaurant’s bar menu.
