It’s hard to believe that there are only a few weeks until the official beginning of fall. Weren’t we just breaking out our Margaritas and Daiquiris for the season? It’s officially time to switch things up. From football-worthy punches to apple-infused drinks, we have the 9 cocktails you need for all your September parties.

1. Amaretto Sour

This isn’t the overly-sweet Amaretto Sour you’re used to. Instead, this version shirks premade sour mix for real ingredients, resulting in just the right blend of sweet, sour and nutty. Simply shake amaretto, bourbon, fresh lemon juice, rich simple syrup and an egg white until frothy, and garnish with a lemon peel and brandied cherries.

To enjoy your cocktail to the maximum, pour your Amaretto Sour into The Drop It small cocktail glasses. The glasses are made of Tritan unbreakable plastic which will ensure no shattering glass all over your living room. They are also BPA free and have the clarity of glass.

5. Game Day Sangria

The start of football season calls for a cocktail that you can serve to even the largest parties. This mix of white wine, apple cider, hard cider and ginger ale gets a lift from lemon. Mix up a big batch in a pitcher at the kick-off so you can keep everyone hydrated while you watch the game instead of the bar.
