Autumn CocktailsNovember 5, 2019
Autumn in New England is simply the best. The transition from Summer to Winter brings us vibrant leaves, crisp evenings, and most importantly, gives us a good excuse to snuggle up with a seasonal cocktail.
We make several spirits that were created to best represent this season, ranging from Autumn Gin to Apple Brandy to Autumn Amaro to Pommeau. Below are a few cocktail recipes for you to make at home. Enjoy!
The Apple Cinner tastes exactly as it sounds… like an apple cinnamon explosion. One of our most popular seasonal cocktails at the distillery, this drink is a versatile crowd pleaser and is highly recommend as a post-meal Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving celebration.
• 1oz Short Path Distillery Apple Brandy
• 1oz Short Path Distillery Autumn Amaro
• 1oz Cinnamon Syrup
• 1/4oz Lemon
• 2 Dashes Cinnamon Bitters
Add all ingredients to a shaker, add ice, and shake until chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Don’t let the name scare you away, the Nor’Easter is pretty much fall in a glass: Whiskey, lime, maple, bitters, and ginger beer. If you don’t have our flagship Whiskey on hand, try replacing it with our Peated Whiskey or Rum Barrel Aged Whiskey.
• 2oz Short Path Distillery Whiskey
• 1/2/oz Lime
• 1/2oz Maple Syrup
• 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

Add all ingredients to a shaker except for ginger beer, add ice, and shake until chilled. Strain into a highball filled with ice, top with ginger beer and mix together. Garnish with a sage leaf.
Bye Week is named after that awful week during football season when the Patriots aren’t playing. When that week comes and you find yourself needing a cocktail, try this spiced up seasonal daiquiri.
• 1 1/2oz Short Path Distillery Rum
• 3/4oz Lime
• 1oz Ginger Spiced Pear Syrup
Add all ingredients to a shaker, add ice, and shake until chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a lime.
Last but not least, we have the Sunday Funday. This is the low-ABV Autumn cocktail you need to make it through the most fun day of the week. It’s pretty too.
• 1oz Short Path Distillery Summer Amaro
• 1/2oz Short Path Distillery Autumn Gin
• 1/2oz Short Path Distillery Triple Sec
