Can't-Miss Cocktails You Have To Drink This Fall (PHOTOS)

Oct 14, 2013 | Updated Oct 15, 2013

Cooler-weather drinking season is upon us. Although every season is a great cocktail season, fall may be our favorite with its punches, whiskey concoctions and apple brandies. If we need to tell you to drink Manhattans, Old Fashioneds and Hot Toddies in the fall, then you haven't been paying attention. If you have, we found 10 drinks you should definitely drink this autumn.

As always, we see fall cocktail recipes as a great opportunity to bridge the gap between seasons. We're not quite ready to let go of gin drinks, and we also don't want to burn ourselves out on hot cocktails and champagne before winter arrives. Just kidding, that will probably never happen. Let us know your favorite fall cocktail in the comments!

    I mean, this cocktail does everything fall-oriented short of putting a sweater on you and giving you a hug.
