Fall is a great time to catch up with friends and family over a cocktail. Cary NC cocktail bars are ideal spots for meeting loved ones and enjoying a drink. The season is too short to stick to beer or wine; you have to try a fun fall cocktail while they last

The Ginger Pear

This drink hails from my favorite local cocktail bar. Ginger bitters give sweet pear nectar a spicy bite mixed with vodka and club soda. Not a fan of vodka? Search “bourbon bar near me” for a place that makes a bourbon mule with a seasonal pear garnish.

Spiked Apple Cider

A mix between a hot buttered rum and an average joe apple cider, this drink is sure to warm your soul. Rum, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and apple cider melt down into a hot beverage to help fight the cool breeze overtaking Cary NC cocktail bars.

Pumpkin Beer Float

Combining dessert and beer can only go right. Local cocktail bars love to tap a seasonal pumpkin beer. Adding ice cream and cinnamon just takes it to the next level. This is perfect for early autumn when the weather it still nice, but summer flavors don’t feel right.

Apple and Bourbon Punch

A bourbon bar near me found the perfect flavor profile: crisp, sweet apple cider with a bourbon kick. This one is served cold, but will still warm your spirits with fiery bourbon. Complimentary flavors are what fall cocktails are all about.

Enjoy the season of falling leaves and colder weather with cocktails from bourbon bars and North Carolina breweries. Local dives and upscale establishments alike are committed to mixing sweet, spicy, and bold flavors into your favorite drinks.
