One of the best things about autumn in my opinion is the plethora of festive cocktails that pop up at your favorite local watering-holes. It seems every year the creations get better and better and the temptation to imbibe in a fall-flavored libation becomes too great to resist. Among the frontrunners this year is the iconic Castle Hill Inn, who’s fall offerings include an October Fashioned, Cranberry-Spiked Cider, Stormy Cider and Harbor Cask. These drinks combined with that view are definitely reason enough to indulge in a mid-week beverage, don’t you think?

A New-England riff on the Dark & Stormy, including local fresh apple cider.
Locally made Thomas Tew Rum, aged in an oak cask with Cointreau, vermouth, and bitters.
