5 Autumn Cocktails You'll Fall in Love With

5 Autumn Cocktails

You'll Fall in Love With

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, Giants fans are crossing their fingers in hopes of another World Series victory, and most importantly, nameless coffee corporations now bear the option of pumpkin spice-flavored coffee drinks. Fall is in the building, people.

Along with sneaking a shot of whiskey into your PSL this year (don’t worry, we won’t judge), the team at your favorite beverage catering company, SF Bartenders, have decided to break the mold of fall treats in homage to our fellow boozehounds. Our team has pulled a few of our favorite fall-themed alcoholic delights in our best attempt to raise your spirits—pun intended.
