The next season is fast approaching. Can you feel it in the air? Have you noticed the sun has moved? Where in the world does the time go? Fall is often a depressing time of year for me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the beautiful changing leaves, cozy fires, and comfort foods associated with fall. But, everything starts to die and it turns cold fast here in Colorado. Death and cold, talk about depressing. Summers here are so short that most times I feel robbed. 🙁 What can I say? I love the summer. Anyway, I thought I’d try and spread some fall cheer by bringing you…my favorites…4 delicious Fall Cocktail Recipes! ♥♥AND a GIVEAWAY!!!!!♥♥

If you have never had an Italian soda…I’m sorry.

You have missed out on one of the finer things in life.

But don’t worry, I got you!

Italian sodas are typically non-alcoholic and consist of 3 basic ingredients. Syrup, club soda or seltzer water, and cream.

To make this Limoncello Italian soda 21+, I replaced the syrup with Limoncello which really is just lemon-infused grain alcohol with simple syrup added.

I also replaced the flavorless sparkling base with a delicious Truly Hard Seltzer Lemonade!

PRO TIP: Chilling time for your sangria is vital. Don’t mess around with this last step. You need that time for all the flavors to come together. 

If you don't allow the chilling time it's not sangria, it's just spiked wine with a mixed berry garnish. Click To Tweet
