Mulling spices, hot soup, the crunch of fallen leaves, and a distinct, crisp chill in the air—these are a few of our favorite things.

We feel sure you’ve noticed it too. Fall weather is so close we can smell it, and we have a whole new crop of seasonal fare on the brain. As such, we again tip our hats to a group of fabulous bloggers, who are busy making it look way too easy. Featuring brand new posts, and posts of seasons past, this round-up promises to peak your excitement for the cool months to come.

 

HonestlyYUM
Moscow Mule from HonestlyYUMWith the addition of earthy cardamom and their own recipe for homemade ginger ale, HonestlyYUM takes a simple, old-school cocktail and transforms it into the Cardamom Moscow Mule, our newest must-drink cocktail for the autumn months. And we just can’t get past the lovely styling—a traditional Moscow Mule is served in a copper mug. Just lovely.

 

Minimalist Baker
Minimalist Baker Pumpkin Hot Chocolate We know, we know. Pumpkin Spice this, Pumpkin Spice that… But fall without pumpkin? Nay. And so we thank goodness for a refreshing perspective like the one you find at Minimalist Baker and, of course, for this Boozy Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate {Two Ways}.

 

Fuss Free Cooking
Fuss Free Tea

The delightfully simple Apple and Rosemary Infused “Tea” from Fuss Free Cooking is nothing short of brilliant—and it actually calls for no tea at all. Infuse hot water with apples, fragrant fresh herbs and honey, and you’re left with a warm, comforting cup the whole family can enjoy.

 

Shutterbean
Shutterbean CiderIn our book, early fall is the official kickoff of crock pot season, and Shutterbean jumps on the bandwagon seamlessly with a slow-simmering Fruity Boozy Mulled Cider recipe.

 

Two Tarts
Two Tarts Pear CocktailSweet, mellow and delicately hued, this Vanilla Pear and Vodka Cocktail from Two Tarts may be the perfect early autumn cocktail. Those black specks come courtesy of a freshly scraped vanilla bean. Stunning, no?

 

The Boys Club
Boys Club Brandy AlexanderThe team at The Boys Club—not all boys, mind you—offer up recipes, features and otherwise general boozy wisdom for the masses. Their post on The History of Brandy Alexander does just that, even including variations on the traditional recipe to suit any taste—though the creamy chocolate flavor is ever-present, and a sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg is a seasonal must.
