There is something about the crisp air, a new sweater and falling leaves that makes autumn a lovely time for entertaining. Cocktails, along with food and decor, are such a fun piece of the party puzzle. Check out our round-up of fall cocktails you'll love.
1. This Old Fashioned has a lovely autumnal twist by adding maple syrup. Its sugar pairs well with the bourbon. Garnish with a cherry for a little more sweetness and a pop of color.

2. We couldn't put together a fall cocktail round-up without including a cocktail with some fig flavors. Figs are sweet and lovely; and make a great addition to a cocktail and the perfect garnish. While mixing tequila, orange juice, rosemary and fig preserves; this Fall and Summer cocktail takes you right from the warm days to the cool nights.

4. If you like a Moscow Mule, you'll love this fall twist! This Apple Pie Moscow Mule is filled with autumnal flavors with its cider and caramel apple flavored vodka. This one also makes a great mock-tail when you omit the vodka. Don't forget the copper mugs and garnishes for the finishing touches.

7. We love sangria in the spring and summer, but a good spiced Fall Sangria makes a great autumn cocktail, too. This recipe combines full bodied red wine with brandy, apple cider and cinnamon simple syrup for a flavorful drink. This one works great for a crowd too!
