I have to close my eyes when I go to the craft store, because I’m in no mood for scarecrows. I want Sangria, Frose, and all the summer drinks I can manage, but there are a few cocktails that you could drink all year and a few that ease us into the Fall and Winter gracefully.
Summer Cocktails that Work All Year include the Gin Basil Smash with Lemon Simple Syrup
More reasons to grow your own basil. If you find lemon basil, even better! Lemon Thyme would be another great garnish. Gin Basil Smash Recipe Here.
Summer Cocktails with Multi-Purposes: Elderflower Gin Cocktail
The color comes from Concord grapes which always make me think of Autumn. So good! This might be considered a girlie drink, so be sure to bookmark this for your next shower or Galentine’s party. Elderflower Gin Cocktail here.
Summer Cocktails often have fruit like this Blueberry Old Fashioned
Light Enough for Summer, substantial enough for Fall. When winter rolls around, make this Cara Cara Orange Old Fashioned.

Rose Summer Cocktails like Frosé Works All Year, Especially at Holiday Brunches
Frosé is a cocktail you can make all year long using frozen strawberries and you’ll want to have at your holiday brunches. I have these coupe glasses from Libby (Amazon).
Summer Cocktails that Roll into Autumn with Ease
Roasted Butternut Squash Infused Vodka with Sage Garnish
You will need to make your vodka in advance by a week, but trust me, this is so good and especially nice passed around at a holiday dinner in small glasses like these.
Summer Cocktails that Roll into Winter Festivities
When the watermelon is gone, the pomegranates arrive and you can make this Pomegranate Vodka Cocktail drink or this Cranberry Cocktail.
Cheers to the Cocktail Hour. What’s your favorite Summer into Fall/Winter cocktail?
