Farm Kissed at 1911 Tasting Room

Upstate New York is basically the mecca of apple picking season, so it’s no wonder that the 1911 Tasting Room has a divine cocktail. Made with 1911 gin and Heritage Dry Hard cider, fruit puree, fresh strawberries, cucumber and mint, this cocktail tastes just like the end of summer and the start of fall. 2708 Lords Hill Rd, Lafayette, NY,

This Chicago restaurant shows its apple love with Head Bartender Jennifer Knot’s Mamma I’m Coming Home, a mulled cider cocktail made with pecan-infused Cutty Sark Blended Scotch whiskey (yum), Fonseca Bin 27 port, honey syrup, cinnamon sticks and cloves for a super aromatic, boozy treat.

Autumn’s Ambrosia at Crimson & Rye

Autumn's Ambrosia at Crimson & Rye

The Autumn’s Ambrosia at Crimson & Rye in NYC is mixologist Mcson Salicetti’s homage to the season. “Autumn is fall and ambrosia translates to nectar,” he explains. “The exilir of life, the drink of the gods and immortality!” While we dig Salicetti’s inspiration, we are really into this cocktail for its mix of Blue Nectar Resposado Extra Blend, lemon juice, black peppercorn-honey syrup, fresh apple juice, sherry, and whiskey barrel-aged bitters. 198 E 54th St., 212-687-6692, 

Thanks for Smoking at Wolfgang Puck Borgata

Thanks for Smoking at Wolfgang Puck Borgata

This cocktail takes some time to make: it’s infused in a sherry cask for two months. But don’t worry – it’s waiting for you at Wolfgang Puck American Grille at the Borgata. Made with black chai tea-infused Calvados Boulard (with apple and cider aromas), dry sack sherry, Dubonnet Rouge, Punt e Mes and jasmine tea-infused Applewood,  it’s a tasty and smokey apple treat. 1 Renaissance Way, Atlantic City, NJ, 609-317-1000,

Head northwest to Vancouver to check out the Alchemist Cider at Chambar. Made with Left Field Big Dry cider, housemade Alchemist syrup (Demerara syrup, dried Seville orange rind, kola nut and Spanish sarsaparilla) and grapefruit rind, we think it’s worth the trip. Fun fact: all of the ingredients used in the drink, by mixologist Philippe Grandbois, are from regions mentioned in Paulo Coelho’s beloved book “The Alchemist.” 568 Beatty Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, 604-879-7119,
