As daylight hours become shorter and leaves begin to drop from trees, fall brings in flavors of apple, cinnamon, pear, and other warm spices.
These flavors are perfect for desserts, but there’s nothing like a fall-themed cocktail to get you in the mood for colder weather and the upcoming winter holidays.
Gin is one of the best alcohols to pair with fall flavors, as it offers citrus notes and subtle notes of spices and herbs.
With this in mind, here are some of the best fall gin cocktails you should try during the beautiful fall season.
A spiced pear and gin cocktail is the perfect drink to warm you up on a chilly fall day.
The spiced pear liqueur combines perfectly with the cardamom bitters, which adds some peppery notes.
Then the gin comes in and adds a light citrusy flavor, creating a nice base to go with the lemon juice. I love the fruitiness of this drink.
A gin apple pie cocktail is the essence of fall with its combination of gin, delicious apple cider, and cinnamon-flavored simple syrup.
It truly is apple pie in drink form, and this cocktail is quite addicting. The apple cider adds the perfect amount of sweetness.
Don’t forget to dip the rim of your glass in some cinnamon sugar for that homey apple pie taste. This is one of
my favorite fall drinks.
A fall gin fizz is a great drink to have with your meal as it is very refreshing with natural and homemade ingredients.
It combines the citrusy notes of gin with a spiced apple simple syrup and apple cider.
It tastes similar to
a hard cider to me, but with a little more sweetness from the sugar in the syrup.
The carbonation makes it a good drink to sip on with your meal.
A pear gin gimlet has a subtle citrusy taste and tartness to it due to the dry gin and lime juice.
However, sage, pear, and sugar add notes of sweetness in a homemade simple syrup mixture.
The slight mintiness and herbal flavors of sage pair well with the sweet tanginess of pears, making the drink rather refreshing. I like to enjoy this drink with extra lime slices.
Apple cider, ginger beer, and gin make a delicious cozy feeling in the apple gin mule.
Ginger beer, a non-alcoholic beverage, has intense flavors of fresh ginger that help balance out the sweetness of apple cider.
I would describe the drink as sweet and spicy.
The cinnamon pear gin fizz reminds me of baked pears simmering away in the oven, but a cold drink version.
The gin and fresh pear juice are the stars of the show, while the cinnamon adds a delicious warm spiciness to finish it off.
If you’re more into citrus than pear and apple, the fall gin sour is perfect for you.
The drink combines
orange-flavored liqueur and lemon juice with some gin to create a face-scrunching sourness.
However, orange marmalade (a jelly-like spread that contains water, sugar, oranges, and lemon) enters the scene to project some vibrant sweetness on your tastebuds.
I think this cocktail is the ideal mix of sour and sweet.

Sangria is a favorite drink of mine, so turning it into a fall-themed cocktail wins me over.
This sangria combines three types of alcohol with a soothing spike of cinnamon syrup.
Soda water brings in a refreshing fizz, while the fresh fruit slices and cinnamon sticks infuse the drink with more flavor. I enjoy having this cocktail with charcuterie boards.
Apple cider and gin make a great cocktail by themselves, but it can taste a little tart, making people shy away.
However, this apple and cinnamon gin cocktail switches it up with about an ounce of sweet cinnamon syrup per drink.
It also has double the amount of apple cider compared to gin, so it’s a good choice for people who don’t like the taste of alcohol.
It’s like drinking a sweet cinnamon apple cider with a subtle hint of alcohol. I think it’s the perfect cocktail to serve at fall-themed parties.
