What flavor exemplifies fall more than apple? The Apple and Ginger Mojito is a refreshing seasonal sip. A spin on a classic, Angostura 5 Year Gold presents notes of caramel, lemon and vanilla that are complemented by ginger and fresh lime. Angostura Aromatic bitters ties it together with a nuanced bouquet of fruits, spices and herbs.

As the leaves turn burnt orange, saffron yellow and crimson red, an Amaroni will sweep you away with the fervor of fall. What makes this cocktail so much more dimensional than a Negroni riff?
