If you are looking for an easy cocktail to serve for game day, friendsgiving or to add to your Thanksgiving menu, an Apple Cider Shandy is perfect. It’s light and refreshing and even if you aren’t a big fan of beer, you are going to like it. 

More Beer Cocktails to Try:

  • Lemon Shandy is one of my favorites for summer but they are really good all year long. A mix of lemonade and beer, it couldn’t be easier or more refreshing.
  • Beer Punch is a party favorite. It’s a large batch cocktail made with beer and pineapple and ginger ale. Surprisingly delicious and perfect game day parties and cookouts.
  • Red Beer is another party favorite. It’s similar to a bloody Mary but made with beer instead of vodka. Pretty simple and always delicious.

More Fall Cocktails to Try:

Fall Appetizers to Pair with Cocktails:

  • Pomegranate Pecan Party Appetizer is so simple to make with cream cheese and fresh pomegranate arils, fresh herbs, honey and toasted pecans. 
  • Sausage Spinach Quiche is an easy make ahead dish that is perfect served at room temperature. Cut this quiche into small wedges for a party appetizer. 
  • Cranberry Dip is a favorite for Thanksgiving and is so simple to make for parties and get togethers. A quick cranberry sauce that is served over cream cheese. So delicious!
