Take Your Outdoor Party Game Up a Notch With These Cool Iced Drinks
Iced Drinks that are Perfect for Fall in Arizona
Fall time in Arizona doesn’t necessarily mean the weather dips into cooler temperatures, especially during the beginning of the season. In fact, temperatures in Arizona in September tend to be well into the 80s and 90s. Just because it’s hot outside, though, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your outdoor patio areas. Let’s take a quick look at four iced fall drinks you can serve that are sure to make everyone’s taste buds dance with delight.
Mexican-Inspired Chilled Coffee
It’s time to ward off the hotness with a delicious spiked iced coffee. Simply brew your favorite coffee, add a shot or two of homemade espresso along with a minimal amount of Cayenne and cinnamon, mix in a blender with ice and creamer, and top it off in the cups with whipped cream. Your taste buds might be a bit confused by the hotness of the recipe and the coldness of the ice but it’s a fall time drink that will have your guests begging for seconds.
Pumpkin Pie Nog
If your guest list includes kiddos or those under the legal drinking age, you’ll definitely need to offer an assortment of non-alcoholic beverage options, like iced pumpkin pie nog. You can serve the drink hot or cold, making it perfect for a party that starts during the daytime and lasts throughout the wee hours of the morning when it tends to get chilly outside.
Long Island Apple Iced Tea
It’s fall time, so why not go bobbin’ for apples? And while you’re at, you can get everyone in the mood with a Long Island Apple Iced Tea. This beverage is for those of the legal drinking age and is a huge hit thanks to its addition of apple cider and apple slices. It’s so easy to make. All you have to do is buy Long Island Ice Tea mix from the store, add in a bit of apple cider, pour in glasses with ice, and top each glass with apple slices.
Spiced Pear Drink of Choice
If your party has a bar area, you can offer a variety of cold beverages and then offer to spike guests’ drinks with spiced pear gin. A spiced pear syrup can be poured into any drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, and serves as a great way to add a bit of warmth to the taste buds even in the coldest of iced fall drinks.
Fall time in Arizona is the perfect time to host an outdoor party. Whether you’re planning an evening get-together for friends and family or an outdoor co-worker party to celebrate your new promotion, you can rest easy knowing there are plenty of iced fall drinks to keep your guests cool and refreshed.
