As the leaves turn and fall alongside the temperatures in Door County, our favorite liquids go from icy cold to warm and steamy. Cozy up this season with a hot mug of coffee, tea or cider and make a toast with a spiced wine or warm cocktail.
Here are five warm drinks to sip this fall:
Find fresh apple cider to buy by the half or full gallon at this orchard market just north of Egg Harbor. Heat in a sauce pot with a cinnamon stick for a warm treat full of that sweet and tart apple flavor.
Or add a shot of your favorite spirit and a slice of apple to enjoy a warm cocktail.

You can enjoy this favorite bonfire treat without striking a match! The specialty espresso drinks at Double Delites in Egg Harbor are made extra special with the addition of Ghriradelli Chocolate flavors. The S’mores Latte is a autumn staple with steamed milk, espresso, Ghriradelli Chocolate and toasted marshmallow. Craving something cooler? They also offer Italian soda and gelato shakes.

Rosé and white wine have ruled the summer patio scene, but once the leaves start to change, reds and mulled wine take center stage.

Bonus: the aroma is bound to put your household in a cozy mood.
