Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Let’s toast to the change of seasons with these two festive fall cocktail recipes that are fun and colorful to serve.  This was a boozy blast to shoot for my recent Your Life Arizona morning show segment.  A big thank you to my soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Hannah who made these for my birthday and agreed to share with my morning show viewers and blog readers.  The first cocktail is a beautiful purple and the second spirit is festive orange.  Both colors are fall fabulous.  The drinks taste great, too.  Watch my 3TV video morning show segment to see how to make these simple seasonal fun cocktails (written recipe instructions are below the video)…
