Honey is the not-so-secret superfood of fall. When it comes to uses, the sticky substance eases sore throats, enhances tea, and acts as a natural substitute for sugar in quick loaves and cookie recipes. 

With so many possibilities for the all-natural ingredient, it's hardly a surprise that it makes a top-notch addition to craft cocktails as well. Before fall festivities arrive in full force, upgrade your bartending game by blending up a few drinks with KAS Krupnikas, the Lithuanian honey-spiced liquor made right in Mahopac.

Although the recipe for KAS itself is a secret, the uses for the sweet spirit are not. Co-founder Marushka Osman shared not one, but three signature cocktails to spice up the holidays in the Hudson Valley. Happy sipping!
