I love Fall. The leaves start to change, the colors are warm and inviting, and my cocktail palette starts to change.

Our friends at George Dickel and Roe & Co have shared with me 4 Fall-inspired whiskey cocktails worthy of trying. So grab your comfy sweater, get your cocktail shaker out, and make some drinks!

Fall Whiskey Cocktails Sure to Keep You Warm

George Dickel East Nashville Morning recipe

1. George Dickel Bourbon – East Nashville Morning


  • 1.5 oz Dickel Bourbon
  • 0.25 oz Coffee Liqueur

Roe & Co Basil Bramble recipe

2. Roe & Co – Basil Bramble


  • 45ml Roe & Co 106
  • 30ml Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 15ml Sugar Syrup
  • 15ml Crème de Mure
  • 6 Basil Leaves
  • Cubed & crushed ice
  • Basil Sprig & Blackberry to garnish


Add all ingredients except Crème de Mure to shaker, add cubed ice, shake for a short time vigorously and single strain into a chilled rocks glass, fill glass with crushed ice, top with Crème de Mure, garnish with basil sprig and Blackberry.

Feeling Fancy? Replace the sugar syrup with 20ml of hazelnut liqueur, leave out the crème de mure and instead muddle 4 raspberries in your shaker tin before adding the rest of your ingredients. Mint takes the place of the basil here, for a fresh menthol kick.
