The fall season is fast approaching, and that means cool weather and festival fun. Fall festivals are some of the best ways to get out of the house and enjoy the weather changes with your community. Whether you’re viewing the changing leaves or selling your locally crafted products, there are plenty of things to do at these events. However, no booth is perfect without a cozy beverage or two to offer passersby, and we have just the options for you. Here are four beverage ideas for your fall festival booth and what makes them a tasty addition to any seasonal party.
Sparkling Apple Ginger Mocktails
Apple and ginger are a match made in heaven for any lover of fall flavors. The herby taste of ginger draws out the sweetness of the apples, and, when combined with other spices, you’re in for a punch of goodness you won’t soon forget. These beverages use apple cider concentrate, fresh ginger, and ginger ale as their base. You can also add a cinnamon stick and ice for a refreshing seasonal treat for all to enjoy—even the little ones.
Apple Cider Mimosas
For adults-only festivals, having a couple of harder drinks can go a long way in getting people ready for a great time. These apple cider mimosas are a delicious choice any time of the day, and they’re an effective way to highlight the fall flavor palate. Combine prepared apple cider with a touch of champagne and garnish with apple slices. It’s an easy and fun recipe that’s sure to successfully ring in the start of fall. Just don’t hand out too many of these to the same customers.
Hot Cranberry Apple Cider
On those crisp and chilly fall days, another great beverage idea for your fall festival booth is hot cranberry apple cider. Apple and cranberry make a great combination, with the tartness of one highlighting and drawing out the sweetness of the other. When you combine it with some cloves and cinnamon, you have a drink that perfectly complements the fall season. When you serve it hot, it can warm your patrons up from even the deepest of chills and ensure they stay comfortable as they walk through the booths.
Traditional Spiced Apple Cider
But nothing evokes the true spirit of fall quite like a mug of classic apple cider. This drink, spiced with cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon, packs a flavorful punch that keeps guests coming back for more. It’s also incredibly warming and offers that bit of coziness that everyone searches for on cooler fall days. For an additional twist, consider adding orange slices and packed brown sugar. They add a bit of acidity and additional sweetness that’ll make you stand out from other stalls.
