There’s something great about fall. Maybe it is the orange leaves, the pumpkin spice, and everything nice. There’s something even better about events in the fall. If your event takes place during fall, a seasonal theme is an excellent option.
With the seasonal theme, think of a seasonal setting. Pasadena is the perfect little town with a fall vibe. You can get party rental equipment in Pasadena, CA. With the perfect weather, it sets the mood for the rest of the fall setting.
When things start getting a little colder, it might be good to warm up with some friends and a good drink. Most of the fall is themed around the color orange, apples, and pumpkins. It is an excellent time for harvest, an excellent time for events, and an excellent time for drink.
This is probably the easiest to procure. Visit any shop that sells beer during the season, and you can find some pumpkin beer. Look for a brew that has more barley to give it that extra orange glow. Cinnamon also goes excellent with these tasty flavors.
Apple Cider Mimosa
Fill a champagne glass halfway with apple cider, and then top with champaign. Garnish with an apple. Simple, delicious, and themed!
Pumpkin Spice Latte…with Whiskey
Brew 3 cups of strong coffee. Next, mix with 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of pumpkin puree, 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, and 1.5 tablespoons of maple syrup in a pan. Heat until liquid and then allow simmering at a drinking temperature. Poor whiskey into a glass, then top with heated mixture. Enjoy the taste of pure fall.
For those who don’t enjoy whiskey as much, it may be replaceable with a coffee liqueur.
Caramel Apple Martini
You may have noticed a trend. Apple and pumpkin drinks are everywhere! The caramel apple martini is a little bit colder, but the sugary deliciousness will warm you right up.
Make with 2 fl oz. of vodka, 1 fl oz. of sour apple schnapps, 1 fl oz. of caramel schnapps, 1 cup of crushed ice, and a slice of apple. Mix the alcohol and ice with a shaker to chill. Poor, and garnish with apple. Delicious!
Bourbon Hot Toddy
This one is to break out of the apple and pumpkin trend.
1.35 oz of bourbon, a tsp of sugar, 2 small cloves, and 1.5 oz of boiling water. Add the bourbon, sugar, and cloves to a glass. Pour the boiling water on top for a heated taste of fall.
