Autumn Mocktail Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Super simple warm fall mocktail using applies and cranberries by

Fall is one of my favorite seasons, the air is chilly, the warm scents are everywhere (cinnamon candles + pumpkin spice candles are my favorite!), and the leaves create the most beautiful colors. Fall it’s also a great season to decorate your front door, and it also means that the holidays are approaching. So when this season comes I know it’s time to shake up an Autumn Mocktail.

And friends, this is so good! Like really really good, actually it has become a real crowd favorite around here and friends and family ask for the recipe every single time.

The Autumn Mocktail tastes very similarly to an apple cider but with hints and bits that make it feel extra especial. It’s also completely homemade which really amps up all the flavors + it leaves your home smelling amazing.

Let’s talk about the scent for a second, we are going to be slowly simmering cinnamon + apples + oranges + cloves + cranberries and rosemary and a couple of pear slices. Just imagine for a second how the smell is? Well, it’s almost 10 times better than what you are imagining. I actually joke with friends that we should bottle up this scent.

The other thing is that it looks really festive without the need of alcohol or soda. I know that most of the mocktail recipes call for soda but in this case is not necessary at all! While you could definitely spike it if you want, the flavor combo is so powerful that you don’t need it at all.

Just make sure to make a big batch, so there’s enough for everybody.

You will not believe the smell in your home from making this yummy autumn mocktail by

    Am I missing something? What about liquid? It seems that the juice from 1 orange will not be enough to boil all this fruit it. Do you add water? Maybe I’m not awake yet! Ha!

      Haha, you aren’t awake! The second ingredient is 2 cups of water. The rest of the fruit will yield additional liquid with the long cooking times too. Have fun!
