Fall Cocktail Favorites

The nights are getting longer, the aroma of wood burning in fireplaces fills the air and apple trees are laden with fruit just waiting to be plucked — fall is finally here! At The Estate, we love this season of harvest. Our grounds are at their finest and visitors can clearly see why we are one of the prime private event spaces in Atlanta. To take the edge off the chill in the air, concoct one or more of these perfect seasonal cocktails below.

Pumpkin Martini

Whether you serve it shaken or stirred, a pumpkin martini is an autumn cocktail that captures the spirit of the season like no other. Simply mix vanilla vodka with cream and pumpkin liqueur for a smooth and satisfying aperitif. If you can’t find pumpkin liqueur, pumpkin spice syrup or even pumpkin puree works well with this drink too.

Hunter’s Cocktail

The hunt is on! This whiskey and brandy drink with just a hint of cherry is the perfect lowball cocktail at the end of a long day of hunting and hiking. Whether or not you bag the big one, this concoction will make traipsing through the woods more than worthwhile.

Hot Apple Pie

Have your pie and drink it too! Ward off the impending chill of an autumn evening by mixing hot apple cider with Tuaca for a soothing cocktail. This Italian liqueur adds wonderful hints of orange and vanilla to your drink – just what you need to whet your appetite for a hearty autumn dinner.


Made with mmaretto mixed with scotch, this cocktail will melt away the cares and stress of a tough day at work. You can use vodka in lieu of the scotch for a milder taste and call it a Godmother instead.

Classic Manhattan

Choose traditional rye whiskey for this classic drink or opt for bourbon or Canadian whiskey instead. No matter what you decide to use, you will find its smooth, warming flavors to be the perfect antidote for autumn’s chilly evenings.
