Say hello to Fall in a big way with Skinnygirl Cocktails #Recipes


If you enjoy the warm weather months then saying good-by to summer may not be a high on your list, but instead of mourning the sunshine and warm days, get excited about the brand new season ~ Fall and all of the delicious Fall cocktails! 

Pack up the frozen margaritas and other slushy drinks and reach for something warm and cozy like these SkinnyGirl Cocktails featuring the yummy seasonal flavors of pumpkin and apple. They're perfect for tailgate parties, bonfires or a relaxing night by the fireplace or outside fire pit. 

A few simple ingredients can transform an uninspiring drink into a festive and seasonal beverage that will impress your friends and family members. As the breeze gets cooler, break out the scarves and boots, the sweaters and hoodies and watch the leaves change colors or light a fire to set your mood for autumn. 

Since we're reveling in the new season, it's only right that we share a few colorful facts about Fall:
