We can’t beat around the bush here, alcohol definitely isn’t the *best* thing for you – but, it can be okay to indulge in a drink with friends every now and then. Why not make those splurges a bit healthier, though?
There’s no need for added refined-sugars, artificial flavors, colors or other scary additives for a drink to be fun! We’ve found some healthy-ish, fall-themed cocktail recipes to add to your festivities this weekend. Also, if mocktails are more your ‘thing’, plenty of these mixes offer enough flavor sans-alcohol and will still give you all the fall-feels.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do – cheers!
Autumn Apple Cider Moscow Mules
If every fall-flavor came together to make a drink, this would be it. Apple Cider, Ginger Beer, Pumpkin Spice – definitely hits every check mark!

If you plan on doing any entertaining this season, these mules are perfect; a breeze to make and easy to dress up!
Pumpkin and Apple Cider Fizz
With only four ingredients, including natural pumpkin puree, these simple drinks come together in little time and have some health benefits. Just mix, shake, pour and enjoy these minimal fall fizz’s!
Apple Cider Mimosas
Love fall, but also love sunday brunch? Then this is the perfect drink for you! Change up your typical mimosa with this easy fall alternative.
Figs are so good for you, packed with fiber and perfectly in-season this time of year. Paired with bourbon, maple syrup, and orange and this twist on an old-fashioned seems like the perfect night cap.
Apple Cider Rooibos Hot Toddy
Here’s one of our favorites, since it’s loaded with good-for-you ingredients and is extremely versatile. Raw ginger, lemon, tea – sounds like the perfect immune-hosting drink to us. With or without the alcohol, though, this hot toddy will keep you warm all autumn long!
