How to make simple fall cocktails you'll drink all season long

Sep 26 2019, 7:27 am

Yes, fall’s here. And we don’t need all the pumpkin spice messaging to remind us.

When you’re tired of ordering the same old seasonal latte over and over again and you want something else to sip on (and something slightly more adult), try some unique cocktails from Grey Goose and BACARDÍ.

Nobody is going to be calling you basic after these.

By capturing the distinct taste and freshness of the Anjou pear, a classic flavour in French cuisine, Grey Goose La Poire Flavoured Vodka is perfect for making any cocktail unique — whether it’s shaken, stirred, or really, however you like it. Most importantly, it’s gluten-free, has no sugar added, and has all-natural flavour.

What many don’t realize is that pears are a seasonal fruit, and their sweet, tart flavour blends perfectly into Grey Goose, reinventing the classic vodka for the fall season.

To pear perfectly with Grey Goose La Poire Flavoured Vodka cocktails, Toronto’s popular Bake Shoppe and Grey Goose Vodka have partnered to offer a pear dessert to enjoy together, including cheesecake bars with ginger-spiced pears and chocolate tarts topped with pear.

From Friday, September 27, to Thanksgiving Monday (October 14), you can pick up one of these pear desserts infused with Grey Goose La Poire Flavoured Vodka — buy one for your friend, your mom, your favourite colleague, or just treat yourself!

If you’re looking for the perfect alternative to pumpkin spice, look no further than BACARDÍ’s Oakheart spiced-rum. Don’t worry — you don’t need to be an expert cocktail maker to enjoy this one. The BACARDÍ Oakheart & Ginger is the perfect spiced cocktail to enjoy this October, and you can easily make it without any mixology know-how.

Read on for two ways to incorporate these flavours in your own at-home concoctions.
