Sprucing your Fall Beverage Selection

Sprucing your Fall Beverage SelectionAs summer comes to an end, cooler weather is right around the corner. With cooler weather comes new opportunities to mix up your drink menu and offer seasonal menu items. Therefore, in addition to securing your operation with a customized Champaign Restaurant Insurance program, try implementing the following types of beverages to capture the essence of autumn.

Apple cider.

Create your own signature apple cider that’ll keep guests coming back for more. Rather than just simmering apple juice and spices, try including washed, whole oranges in the stockpot as well, says the National Restaurant Association. Don’t forget to remove the oranges prior to serving and garnish with a cinnamon stick to give it an extra fall kick.

Juice Toddies.

Provide something for everyone by offering non-alcoholic juice toddies. Combine festive juices such as pear, apple, and cranberry juice with citrus, zest, and spices. Bring all of the ingredients to a low boil and store in the refrigerator. Serve warm and include fun fruit skewers as a garnish, as well.

Spiced smoothies.

Put a spin on an old classic by offering spiced smoothies. Bake fruit in the oven with warm spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice and blend with yogurt and ice, then finish it off with a warm fruit garnish.

Homemade punch.

In a stockpot, simmer apple and cranberry juices with nutmeg, a cinnamon stick and a citrus peel. Briefly boil, then let cool and strain; refrigerate the liquid in a covered container, and serve chilled with ice, says the article. Get creative and add pops of color with fresh fall fruit. Not only will it taste great, it will look great, as well!
