A jolt of tequila brings this classic lime sorbet-topped punch to life. You could add green food coloring to make it really monster-y, but we like the subtle touch of a few slices of lime.

Apple Cider Spritz

Waltzing right into fall with spiced cider and a kiss of pumpkin spice, Aperol’s orange-herbal aspects bring out the best in the cider flavors. To make a big batch, make a pitcher of the cider, Aperol, and pumpkin spice mix, then just add to glasses with ice, a garnish, and Prosecco for a cocktail as crisp and bright as the best fall day.

Pumpkin Juice

In the Harry Potter books, pumpkin juice is traditionally served over ice for a refreshing drink that screams fall; however, you could also warm this up in a mug for something more cozy. Try it with some bourbon for the most Halloween-y hot toddy.
