Fall is officially here and if you’re taste buds are craving autumnal flavors than you’re in luck! Apple — fall’s favorite fruit — is now in season and hitting the drink menus of bars and restaurants everywhere. With so many options to choose from, we’ve done the taste testing for you. Here are the top three apple-flavored drinks you have to try around Des Moines.

Apple Cider Slushie

There’s nothing more refreshing than a slushie, and this cool apple cider will hit the spot. Jump in your car and head about 20 miles north of Des Moines on I-35 to Center Grove Orchard located in Cambridge. There you’ll find a slew of activities including apple picking, a pumpkin patch, corn maze, farm animals and so much more. You’ll also stumble across the cutest little country store selling delicious homemade goods and the most delicious apple cider slushies — not too sweet, not too tart. They sell their cider by the gallon, making it tempting to take some home with you.

Fall Apple Martini

If you’re thirsting for an adult beverage, look no further. Bonefish Grill has you covered. They’ve recently added a new seasonal drink to their bar menu and we’ve fallen in love with it. Bonefish’s Fall Apple Martini is just what you need to welcome fall in the smoothest of ways. This delectable martini is topped off with apples soaked for 3 days in vodka and finishes with a touch of honey and sprinkling of cinnamon. Can you say "yum?" Head on over to West Glen Town Center and see what the hype is all about.

Hot Caramel Apple Cider

The Village Bean Co. is an East Village favorite -- and for good reason. Their hot Caramel Apple Cider is the best around. This ultimate autumn beverage boasts sweet flavors of caramel and apple that mix perfectly with hints of clove and cinnamon to create the perfect balance of everything you love about fall. The next time you venture to the Farmer’s Market, we suggest making a quick pit stop at the The Village Bean Co. and grabbing a Hot Caramel Apple Cider to keep you warm.
