With the temps dropping and the leaves on the verge of showing their magnificent colors, we believe it’s a good time to roll out a few new cocktail recipes. We also suggest several lounges that are our favorite hot spots this time of year.
Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky makes the perfect cocktail that we coined the Inebriated Apple. It’s this simply to make:
1 oz. of Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky
2 oz. Ginger beer
2 oz. Apple Cider
Build all ingredients in a rocks glass and add ice. Garnish with an apple wedge.

Ask for one of these at Skylark Lounge.
If you are planning on hosting a party at home this season, we recommend Van Gogh Punch. This batch of seasonal flavors serves 25 people and truly gets the party started. Ingredients include:
1 750 ml bottle Van Gogh Wild Appel Vodka
1 750 ml. bottle of Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky
2 Cups of Cranberry Juice
2 Cups of Apple Cider
1 Cup of Fresh Lemon Juice
½ Cup of Simple Syrup
1 Cup of Grand Marnier
Add all ingredients in a punch bowl with ice and let sit in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes. Garnish with apple and orange slices. When the party begins, serve in glass punch mugs. Yum!
