Bartender Nick Jarret created this 'sumptuous and complex autumnal sipper,' as Cure calls it. Featuring apple brandy, sherry, and amer served up, this cocktail will most definitely have you bobbing for apples.

Alan Walter's housemade pine needle and birdseed syrup will make a big appearance on his Fall cocktail list at Loa. This Old Fashioned is the perfect way to experience it, when the cold air comes to town.

3. Paris Between the Wars at SoBou

310 Chartres St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 552-4095

Nothing says fall like a scotch and apple cider cocktail. This drink is a favorite of owner Ti Martin, so you know its a classic in the making, and it obviously will lead to an autumnal state of mind.

4. Manamana at Booty's

Copy Link
800 Louisa St.
New Orleans, LA 70117
(504) 266-2887
Visit Website
This drink is a staple in the Dominican Republic. House-made mamajuana, dark rum, rose wine, and "spicy love" make for a Fall must-have. Says owner Kevin Farrell: "We've had the makings of this drink infusing in giant jars on the bar for about 3 months now. Everyone is skeptical about the jar full of twigs until we give them a little teaser sip. It's ridiculously good."

5. Midnight Mass at La Petite Grocery

4238 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70115
(504) 891-3377

The superb Uptown restaurant has just created their Fall/Winter cocktail list, including this rye whiskey, amaro, and pear brandy drink, simple and absolutely suitable for sweater weather.

6. Unicorns & Chocolate at Whiskey Blue

333 Poydras St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 207-5016
Visit Website
The unicorn here obviously refers to scotch, glorious scotch, and the chocolate comes in bitters form. Yes, Dewars White Label meets Bittermans Xocolati Mole Bitters with sweet vermouth and cream sherry thrown in for good measure. There should be a unicorn for all seasons, but we're good with this Fall variation.

7. ? and Answer at Maurepas Foods

Copy Link
3200 Burgundy St
New Orleans, LA 70117
(504) 267-0072
Visit Website
The Bywater restaurant's knack for robust food also translates to the Fall cocktails, with the newly introduced rye whiskey cocktail, ? And Answer. It has quite the bite thanks to the addition of Zucca Rabarbaro, ginger, and black pepper.

8. The Kindness of Strangers at Sylvain

Copy Link
625 Chartres St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 265-8123

Nothing summons a feel-good autumnal drink like calvados. Liam Deegan makes it manly with a Ricard rinse, and adds the razzles in the form of champagne syrup. It's like jazzing up your personality for the holidays.

9. Carthusian Cowboy at Coquette

Copy Link
2800 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70115
(504) 265-0421
Vincent Heitz, head bartender at the impeccable Garden District restaurant, balances double rye with botanicals for a great Fall drink that will knock your wool socks off...Cocchi Americano, vermouth, and chartreuse? Zoinks.
