As much as we hate to admit it ladies Summer is well and truly behind us and we are in Autumn. We have to say though this doesn't really make us sad at all. Autumn is one of the best times of the year, you get to wear your fave jumpers again, everywhere is a gorgeous orange colour and of course, Halloween is only just around the corner! Some people think cocktails are more of a summer thing but believe us they work amazingly for Autumn too! Why not incorporate some of these delicious Cocktails for your Autumn Hen!

Hard Apple Cider Sangria

Apples are a big feature in Autumn Cocktails ladies. This Hard Apple Cider Sangria is the perfect combination of Autumn and wine in a glass! (Serves 4)

1 Cup of finely sliced red and green apples
1 Orange thinly sliced
Handful of fresh or frozen raspberries
1 Peach thinly sliced
1 Cup of Apple Juice
Quarter Cup of Fresh Orange Juice
Quarter Cup of Apple Brandy (Regular Brandy works well too)
650ml of Apple Cider Vinegar
Ice Cubes
Fresh Mint
How to Make It;
Thinly slice all the fruit
Add the apples, orange, peach, berries, juices and brandy to a pitcher and leave in the fridge for a few hours (the longer you can leave it the better, min 3 hours)
Add the apple cider just before serving
Serve the drink over ice cubes and add the mint for decoration

Boozy Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate

Melt the white chocolate into half a cup of milk over a low heat stirring constantly
Once melted add the rest of the milk, the pumpkin puree and the spice, stirring until all blended evenly
Pour a small amount of the mix into your serving glass and add the bourbon. Add the rest of the mix and stir. Top off with whipped cream and carmel to taste.

Apple Bourbon Bellini

You may think that a Bellini is a classic summer drink ladies but when paired with the right fruit it is perfect for an Autumn hen! (Serves 6)
What You'll Need;
3 apples, cut into wedges and cored
1-2 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
1 bottle of Prosecco

If you like to use some apple slices to garnish the drink.
