Blog: Fall Cocktails to Keep You Warm This Season
With Miami bars still closed going into fall, it’s up to South Floridians to whip up their own fall-themed cocktails, and there’s no better mixology lab than the custom Italian kitchens at Brickell Flatiron’s Downtown Miami condos. As rain blows against the floor-to-ceiling windows, residents can sip their favorite cocktail and watch the storm journey across Biscayne Bay and over the buildings Downtown. Here are some recipes that will keep residents warm through the cold(er) season!
While sangria is normally a summer beverage, winter sangria recipes using seasonal fruit are a refreshing twist on classic autumnal mulled wines. First-time fall sangria mixers should try this easy Caramel Apple Sangria: just combine wine and apple cider with vodka, honey crisp apples, cinnamon sticks, pears, and ginger ale and let it sit for a few hours to create a spicy fall drink that will keep everyone coming back for more. Residents who love the Caramel Apple Sangria should try the more adventurous Autumn Fig Sangria, which aims for a brighter flavor while still delivering a boozy punch.
While tasty, sangrias aren’t going to put residents’ mixology skills to the test. Confident home bartenders who love the spicy flavors of sangria should try their hands at some more advanced cocktails like this Warm Bourbon Cider, which makes a great nightcap. Looking for something to do with that leftover apple cider? Try mixing it with champagne for a bubbly fall-tinged treat. Tequila lovers should try their hand at this Cinnamon Tequila Sour, a twist on a whiskey sour that combines elements of that drink and a margarita to create a unique take on a barroom favorite. Classy imbibers who enjoy relaxing with an Old-Fashioned should try this citrus variation, the Orange-Thyme Old-Fashioned, which brings a little brightness to this iconic cocktail.
Making these drinks will just scratch the surface of what the fully equipped kitchens at Brickell Flatiron are capable of. To get the most from these state-of-the-art kitchens, residents should whip up that fall classic, an apple pie! Residents can make the crust on the Caesarstone countertop before sliding their creation into their top-of-the-line Miele stainless-steel oven, while the Miele dishwasher (with drying system) will make cleanup quick and easy.
With another season of social distancing ahead, residents of Brickell Flatiron can look forward to mixing up cocktails and whipping up their favorite baked goods all fall, accompanied by sweeping views of the city and water.
