Culinary Inspiration

Denisse here from This fall I teamed up with California Walnuts to create some seasonally-inspired beverages! These three walnut-based drink recipes capture some of the best flavors of the season. From a cozy coffee drink to a lush cocktail to a sweet treat, there’s something for everyone to sip this season.

Fig, Walnut & Date Milkshake

This Fig, Walnut & Date Milkshake is a sophisticated take on a milkshake! Walnuts and dates combine with vanilla ice cream to form the base of the shake. It’s then layered with fig jam to form a swirled pattern. If you’re lucky enough to find fresh figs in your area, they make a great topping along with chopped walnut pieces and a dollop of whipped cream.

Walnut Horchata Martini

Although traditionally made with rice milk, this walnut milk version of horchata is made by adding a nice big pinch of cinnamon to store bought walnut milk. Although wonderful to drink by itself, try this Walnut Horchata Martini by mixing it with vodka and coffee liqueur. Turn it into a wonderful autumn inspired cocktail that tastes great up, or on the rocks!

Salted Honey & Walnut Latte

Although homemade walnut milk is always an option, using store-bought is an easy shortcut to making this creative Salted Honey & Walnut Latte in a snap. Sweetened with honey and balanced with just a pinch of sea salt, this is one latte you’ll want to linger over.

Whether you’re just getting your day going, or wrapping it up, the seasonal flavors in these drinks will help you feel festive for any Fall occasion!
