Sip on Syracuse this fall and enjoy an autumn-inspired beverage. Try cider made from locally grown apples, craft beverages with seasonal spices, fall lattes, and more.
Fall is not complete without sipping on a glass of apple cider and enjoying the colorful peaks and valleys of Onondaga County. Pick up a jug of cider and enjoy the view at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards or Navarino Orchard, sample from the cider press at Abbott Farms, or visit the Cider Mill at Critz Farms for fresh cider made onsite.
Local coffee roasters roll out the autumnal flavors every September. Highlights include: the Apple Spice Latte from Peaks Coffee Co., the Apple-Chaider from Recess Coffee, seasonal specialties from Salt City Coffee, and pumpkin spice lattes from both Freedom of Espresso and Café Kubal.
If you want to grab a pumpkin and a coffee in one spot, check out Tim's Pumpkin Patch. They have a new Pumpkin Cold Brew Coffee with house-made cold brew and pumpkin syrup, topped with whip cream and pumpkin spice.
Onondaga County Breweries always bring the fall flavor. Try the Pumpkin Brunch Stout, a coffee oatmeal stout, at Willow Rock Brewing Company or the Oh My Pumpkin Pie pumpkin beer at Heritage Hill Brewhouse.
Not a fan of pumpkin? Give the Sweet Potato Brown from Talking Cursive Brewing Company a try. It's a light crisp brown ale brewed with 100 pounds of sweet potatoes and a touch of fall spice. The Skanny Apple Pie is a beer cider hybrid from Skaneateles Brewery and it's made with 100 gallons of fresh pressed juice from Beak & Skiff and tastes just like apple pie, in a glass!
Hard Cider & Cocktails
Grab a flight of 1911 Hard Cider at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards, enjoy flavors like honey crisp and cider donut. Check out the pumpkin drink at Crazy Daisies which features a cocktail of choice, like their Pumpkin Spice Mule or Fall Collins Cinnamon, served inside a baby pumpkin. Last Shot Distillery has a new Apple Pie Moonshine slushie to sip on.
Cheers to sipping on Syracuse this Fall!
