From refreshing sips to savory bites, these apple-accented creations from the city’s top chefs and mixologists are sure to keep your fall cravings in check.

Begin your after-5 festivities with Better Half’s Cider + Smoke cocktail, made with Georgia apple cider, of course. Fair warning: It goes down so smooth, you’ll want to stay for a second round. 349 14th St. NW, Midtown, 404.695.4547

Enjoy the rooftop respite that is Gypsy Kitchen, and order up a handcrafted Gibraltar cocktail (vidal mezcal, Armour & Oak Georgia apple brandy, pear liqueur and cava)—the perfect sipper to warm you up on a cool night. The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, 404.939.9840

Renowned Chef Nick Leahy of Saltyard adds a savory touch to apples’ classic taste with his muscadine-glazed pork belly served with spiced squash puree and apple radish. A prime date-night dish if you ask us. 1820 Peachtree Road NW, Ste. 1, Buckhead, 404.382.8088

Top off a dinner at Donetto with executive chef and partner Michael Perez’s expertly executed apple crostata. Think a warm apple-filled polenta crust plated next to a delectable scoop of salted caramel gelato. 976 Brady Ave. NW, Westside, 404.445.6867

A true Atlanta staple, Henri’s Bakery & Cafe is the city’s go-to for all things sweet treats, especially when it comes to the famed bakery’s apple tart topped with pecans. Look for apple fritters to grace the menu once the cafe’s new Coronet Way setup opens this month. 56 E. Andrews Drive NW, Buckhead, 404.237.0202
