Girls nights are always a good decision, but they are that much better when they embrace a good seasonal twist. Fall nights with friends call for a good fire and the best seasonal cocktail that you can get your hands on.
Where that is concerned, fitness influencer Katie Austin has just about the best autumn cocktail recipe that you could wish for. During a recent girls night in with fellow SI Swimsuit model Christen Harper and their friend and model Elizabeth Turner, the 30-year-old crafted the ideal seasonal drink: cinnamon tequila sours.
While not an obvious combination (we don’t typically mix our tequila with cinnamon), we can’t deny, the cocktails look absolutely amazing. You can be assured that we will be trying the cocktail during our next happy hour—and you should, too. Austin’s simple recipe, which serves two, is as follows:
Katie Austin’s Cinnamon Tequila Sours
3 tequila shots
1 1/2 tbsp. simple syrup
1 lemon, squeezed
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 tbsp. chickpea water (or egg whites)
Pour all of the ingredients except the cinnamon sticks into a shaker.
Pour into two glasses and top with cinnamon sticks.
“Fall cocktail idea with your girls: Cinnamon tequila sours - and make them vegan!!! Instead of egg whites, we’re using chickpea juice and it ACTUALLLLY works and you can’t taste it!!!!” Austin wrote in the caption of her Instagram reel featuring the fall recipe.
While you may want to do the same, you can replace the chickpea water with egg whites for a potentially frothier finish—either way, the drink will surely be delicious.
