Fall Cocktail Recipes

Compensate For Shorter Daylight With A Sparkling Pumpkin Cocktail & A Ciderless “Stormy Cider”




While you’re contemplating goodies for Trick-or-Treating or a special Thanksgiving menu, how about a grown-up treat? Grey Goose vodka has mixed up two special cocktails for deserving hosts, hostesses and their guests.

Fall Cocktail Menu

Falling Leaf Fizz

There’s no leaf, but plenty of fizz as pear, pumpkin and an apple chip unite in a true expression of fall.

Ingredients Per Cocktail

  • 1 part Grey Goose La Poire (pear-
    flavored vodka)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin
  • Pinch of pumpkin pie spice
  • Dash of simple syrup
  • 4 parts of sparkling wine
  • Garnish: dried apple chip



Pumpkin CocktailIf you like pumpkin, mix up a Falling Leaf Fizz. The beautiful orange color is perfect for Fall.

  1. Place vodka, pumpkin butter, spice and syrup in the bottom of a Champagne glass. Stir well.
  2. Top with sparkling wine and garnish.


Stormy Cider

The only storm will be created by guests, if you run out of Stormy Cider!

Ingredients Per Cocktail

  • 2 part Grey Goose Original or
  • 1/2 part Lillet Blanc
  • 4-6 threads of saffron
  • Teaspoon of hot tap water
  • Dash of simple syrup
  • Ice
  • Garnish: long orange or lemon



  Cider CocktailWe’d call it Sunny Cider.
  1. Place the threads of saffron and the hot water in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Stir well and allow to steep for a minute.
  2. Add the rest of ingredients. Stir until the outside of the shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat.
  3. Strain into chilled martini glass and garnish.
