Can you feel the chill in the air? OK, maybe that's taking things too far, but there's certainly a drop in humidity. Fall is here, and with that come seasonal ales and cocktails with spiced notes, rich botanicals, and harvest flavors.

To celebrate, Living Room at the W Fort Lauderdale is sharing a few recipes from their fall lineup -- perfect for a get-together or when planning a Halloween happening.

Make them at home or enjoy them at Living Room for $14 each.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
