4 Fall Cocktails We Love in Newport Beach
Apple, cinnamon, pumpkin spice and everything nice—fall is in the air, and Newport Beach’s best restaurants are stirring up seasonal sips you’re going to love! From a sweet Pumpkin White Russian to a Smokey Mapled Mark, we’ve rounded up four fall cocktails that’ll warm you up from the inside out. Here’s what we’re sipping on this season!
Fall Cocktail: Spellbound
Get in the Halloween spirit this fall with the Spellbound, a spooky concoction crafted with the herby and smoky taste of Xicaru Mezcal, passion fruit, yuzu and honey. It’s a deceitful twist on a Honey Bee and margarita. This fall special at Olea Newport Beach is here for a limited time, so don’t miss out!
Fall Cocktail: Untitled Cocktail
Tucked on the lush grounds of Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar, Farmhouse is keeping things a spooky mystery this season with their “Untitled Cocktail.” While this boozy beverage has no official name, it’s giving fall, and we’re here for it. Combining rye, fernet, nocino, chocolate bitters and pecan salt, it’s the perfect autumn sipper for a cozy night out. Pro tip: be sure to check out Roger’s Gardens’ Halloween boutique, The Witching Hour, for a trove of haunting decor.
Fall Cocktail: Pumpkin White Russian
In honor of autumn, Great Maple at Fashion Island has created a special cocktail available only for the month of October. The Pumpkin White Russian is a boozy take on a fall classic: the pumpkin spice latte. But why order a regular PSL when you can make it boos-y? Pair it with one of their delicious brunch offerings, like the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts, for a true taste of fall.
Fall Cocktail: Smokey Mapled Mark
Fall is in full swing at Tavern House with seasonal dishes and drinks and football Sundays. Get your comfort food fix with the decadent Langoustine Shrimp Corn Risotto—a must-try fall special! Pair this dish with their Smokey Mapled Mark cocktail smoked with maple wood and crafted with Maker’s Mark, Grand Marnier, maple syrup and orange bitters.
