FALL COCKTAILS

http://themartinidiva.com

It's here after a long, hot summer! The Autumnal Equinox has arrived and with it falling leaves, cooler temperatures and that crisp nip in the air. Come this time of year I love nothing better than to sit out on my deck on a cool desert evening and enjoy a cocktail as I watch the wildlife scurry about and the gorgeous Arizona sunsets over the tops of the late blooming Saguaros.  Back East I would be wearing a jacket, firing up my deck fire pit and planning a trip to the pumpkin patch but here in the desert of the Southwest I am happy just to enjoy relief from the triple digit heat and harvest my prickly pear fruit!

No matter where I am located, it's this time of year my cocktail fancy turns to the fall flavors of apples, pears, pumpkins, hatch chiles, pomegranates, cranberries and cinnamon to sip.  So I have gathered together some of my favorite Fall Martinis and Cocktails featuring the flavors, fruits and produce of Fall for myself and to share with you.
