Dubrovnik Restaurant

721 Main St, New Rochelle; 914.637.3777

Bourbon, pear, a squeeze of lemon, and a lot of ginger make up this warming fall cocktail aptly called the Bourbonik. The well-executed combo of lemon, ginger, and honey brightens up the rich flavor of the bourbon, making it an excellent drink for a sunny fall day.

Hudson Social

11 Station Plz, Dobbs Ferry; 914.478.3634

Stop by the Hudson River to take in the autumn foliage while sipping on the latest fall cocktails from Hudson Social. While there are many festive ones to choose from, the Hot Apple Cider is a must-try. With a choice of either bourbon or dark rum, the flavors of the rich alcohol are enhanced by Hudson’s Social special apple cider recipe, which includes a variety of seasonal spices.

Jack’s Bar & Restaurant

219 Main St, Eastchester; 914.652.7650

When it comes to utilizing the flavors of the season, Jack’s does it right — and then some. With a perfect 10 lineup of fall sips, there’s truly something for everyone. Consider the Smoked Maple Old Fashioned or the bold Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini for pumpkin spice lovers looking to go the distance. The newest addition to the menu is a standout; it’s a Blood Orange Honey Margarita, and it’s ideal for anyone looking for the brightness of citrus balanced by the sweetness and warmth of honey syrup. This orange cocktail is lined with a black salt rim, making it picture perfect for your next Instagram story.

241 E Main St, Mount Kisco; 914.864.0606

If you’re looking for a cozy, candlelit dinner alongside charcuterie boards and the finest whiskey, look no further. This Italian bar and eatery feels as though you took a step back into the prohibition era with an ambiance that begs for a cool autumn night to accompany it. Although known for an extensive selection of rare whiskies, Pour invites visitors to venture beyond and try the Ruby Heart cocktail, which brings in the diverse flavor profiles of smoky mezcal and warming cinnamon, and is topped off with an IPA float.

Saltaire Oyster Bar and Kitchen

55 Abendroth Ave, Port Chester; 914.939.2425

Sometimes, even during fall weather, we need a little refreshment from the warmth and coziness of the season. Vodka, cranberry, and lemon may be the focus of The Purple Rain, but the Malbec float on top is what makes this cocktail picture-perfect for fall. This drink is a testament to the fact you can make fall cocktails feel cozy, but also light and refreshing.

Bonus: Beer Here!

Peekskill Brewery

47 S Water St, Peekskill; 914.734.2337

If you fancy a hearty ale over a fancy cocktail, then Peekskill Brewery has the brew for you. With a 5.6% ABV, Heads Will Roll is a pumpkin IPA with a hoppy profile and daring pumpkin flavor that’s just perfect for a tailgate or blue-skied fall weekend.

And for Home-Based Cocktailing:

Attention whiskey drinkers: Current Spirits distillery and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, both in Elmsford, have come together in a neighborly collab to produce the new Autumn Blaze Spiced Malt Whiskey, distilled using Captain Lawrence’s Autumn Blaze Pumpkin Ale. Filled with aromatic spices and an oaky profile, each sip tastes like fall. But don’t take our word for it — sip for yourself!
