The perfect pairing: Healthy fall cocktails with PilotsFriend
Fall time means we have the perfect excuse to dive into new seasonal flavours and make warming cocktails with friends! Gathering with friends and family over some delicious meals is the best part of the holidays, but a night of cocktails often means a morning of recovery.
That doesn’t mean you can’t indulge for the special occasion. Along with keeping your water intake up throughout the night, keeping your ingredients healthy can help you feel your best the next day. PilotsFriend is an all-natural energy tonic made with ingredients that support digestion, boost immunity and are anti-inflammatory, and lead to a much smoother takeoff the following day.
Need a few recipes to get you started? We’ve put together some healthy fall cocktails for you to try this season.
No alcohol needed here! Sometimes it’s just nice to sip on something other than water. Here’s a quick and simple libation to enjoy while you visit with friends.

Handful of mint leaves

Apple Cider Spritz
Have you ever heard of a shrub? No, not like the plant.
If you fancy yourself a slightly more complicated cocktail recipe, try experimenting with shrubs. Essentially a drinking vinegar, shrubs add extra flavour and depth to a drink - alcoholic or not!
Luckily, shrubs sound more complicated to make than they are. Start this cocktail recipe by creating a cinnamon apple shrub here.
Using your homemade shrub, put the rest of the cocktail together:
1 oz zero-proof spirit (optional)
1 oz Apple Cider Shrub
0.5 oz Apple Cider
Top with PilotsFriend
Sliced Apple for Garnish
In a short glass add the non-alcoholic spirit if using, apple shrub, and cider. Fill with ice, top with PilotsFriend and stir. Garnish with apple slices, sip and enjoy!
