Scarves. Bourbon. Autumn may not be everyone’s favourite season, but it always has the best threads, the best palette and and, crucially, the best drinking. Summer drinks are fine for flings, but the dark spirits are so much more companionable as the evenings begin to lengthen. I’m thinking wood, smoke, maple, orchards, spice, high proof. As you ease into the season, therefore, why not take the edge off with the kind of cocktail that you can truly savour? The three below should do the trick nicely.
