1. Negroni

This autumnal aperitif is a bitter but delicious mix of gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, served on the rocks with an orange twist.

2. Autumn whiskey sour

Give this classic an autumnal edge by replacing sugar syrup with maple and stirring with a cinnamon stick.  

3. Pumpkin martini

Vanilla vodka, cream liqueur, pumpkin spiced syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon: It's fall in a glass.

4. Mulled cider

Nothing warms you up quite like this heated combination of cider, allspice, cloves, sugar and an optional splash of dark rum.

5. Brandy Alexander

This drink is a creamy combination of brandy, creme de cacao and thick cream, and sprinkled with nutmeg.

6. Spicy Bloody Mary

Spice up brunch with a classic Bloody Mary, made using chili-infused vodka for an extra kick.

7. Dark ‘n’ Stormy

For a long, spicy drink, mix Goslings Black Rum with fiery ginger beer. Pour over ice and garnish with a lime wedge.

8. Appletini

This sweet apple martini is a straight up mixture of vodka, apple schnapps and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

9. Irish coffee

Add a dash of whiskey, a spoonful of sugar and a dollop of cream to your hot black coffee.

10. Hunters Cocktail

This punchy, post-hunting warmer of whiskey and cherry brandy is garnished with a maraschino cherry.
