If Autumn could be sipped from a glass, it would take the form of this cocktail.  It's a simple yet very flavorful libation that you should definitely find time to enjoy this Fall.

It's hard to describe what makes this cocktail work so well.  The combination of the apple cider and pumpkin just works and makes a sort of Fall punch.  Then the ginger beer cuts through the sweetness, and you're left with a perfectly balanced glass of pumpkin-y apple-y wonderfulness.
