After traveling the scenic highways, there's nothing more relaxing than a roaring campfire or the cozy confines of your RV with a tasty fall beverage. Whether it's a cool libation or a warm fruit punch, a flavorful drink will lift your spirits.

Alcoholic

Tennessee Cherry Cocktail

Serves one sweet cocktail.

  • Combine 6 frozen or fresh pitted and halved dark sweet cherries in an old fashion style glass along with 1 1/2 oz. whiskey or cherry-infused whiskey, 1 tsp. chocolate coffee syrup or cocoa, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract.
  • Use a fork to squish the cherries.
  • Add ice cubes and serve.

Autumn Punch

Serves 10 to 12 in 20 minutes.

  • Place 1/2 of a vanilla bean and 2 tsps. of whole cloves in a 6-inch square of a double-thick, 100 percent piece of cheesecloth. Tie the corners with string to create a sack.

  • Serve mixture with plums in champagne flutes over ice.
