The Autumn Joy Is Thanksgiving’s Cocktail Of Choice

Something special to serve at the adult's table this Thanksgiving.

The Autumn Joy is the perfect drink to make if you’re looking for a shot of fall nostalgia. If there were a drink that taste like autumn, this would be it. Not only is it delicious but it’s really easy to make. You’ll need Crown Royal Apple, cranberry juice, apple simple syrup, bitters, and one mint leaf. WLOX Gulf Coast Weekend stopped by Barefoot Billy’s in Biloxi to see how Matt Troub puts together this fall classic.
