Although we never like to say goodbye to summer, we are starting to get pretty excited about fall -- fall cocktails, we mean. There are a lot of things to like about fall: apples, grapes and squash are all trickling into our farmer's markets and we get to break out our sweaters again, but it still feels pretty okay to drink a margarita in the sunshine on warmer days.
