You'll Fall for these Seasonal Drinks

Local restaurants and cafes put unique seasonal spins on classic bevvies


Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly atmosphere or pining to take your best pal out for a little nightlife, there’s no shortage of uniquely inspired fall beverages – to keep you cool on those high temp days or warm when the sun goes down.


Pumpkin Pie Hard Shake

Vanilla ice cream with authentic pumpkin filling blended to perfection with a graham cracker crust and dosed with Pinnacle whipped vodka – that’s what you’ll get when you order the Pumpkin Pie Hard Shake at Harry’s Bar and Burger. Be instantly transported to a zone where nothing else matters but the goodness that’s in front of you. It will leave you wondering how you ever went without. Lincoln, Newport, Providence (Atwells location only)


Rhody Coyote Hard Cider

There are many flavors of fall that will entice your palate, but nothing beats the delicate and refreshing taste of apple cider. Newport Vineyards’ Rhody Coyote is the perfect delight on a crisp October afternoon. Made in-house with apples from local orchards, it’s dry and effervescent. Pro tip: If you plan to visit the Middletown vineyard, check out Taproot Brewery and ask if their pumpkin beer is out yet.


Hot or Iced Caramello Coffee

What’s better than strolling city streets in autumn? Enjoying a famous Caramello from Providence's White Electric Coffee! Available iced or hot, it features all of those super yummy fall-inspired ingredients. It starts with a house-blended, medium-bodied espresso, mixed with chocolate and caramel sauces, and topped with hazelnut syrup.


White Pumpkin Cocktail

Nestled quietly in Warwick against a woodland backdrop is Tree House Tavern Bistro, a charming spot with twinkling lights and outdoor seating. Here, big flavors and unique concoctions make for a highly curated autumn drink menu. The White Pumpkin is a cocktail made with VanGogh vanilla vodka, Rumchata, pumpkin puree, spices, nutmeg, and half-and-half, and get your camera ready – it’s served up in a vintage milk bottle.


Flaming Espresso Martini with Chocolate

Fire things up this fall at Layali. This chic restaurant really knows how to put a spin on things like the classic Espresso Martini. The twist? A flaming cup of chocolate on top! Owner Philippe Maatouk, who has been in the restaurant and bar business for over 20 years, says he brought flaming drinks to Providence to spice things up and excite patrons with something truly unique. Mission accomplished.
