As the leaves transition from vibrant green to a cascade of burnt orange and crimson, as the wind adopts a cool edge and whispers tales of a fading summer, a new yearning resonates within us.
The autumn air calls for tranquility, reflection, and a subtle sense of warmth that permeates the chill of the season. In the heart of this enchanting metamorphosis, we uncover a kindred transformation within the sphere of our everyday indulgences.
Amidst the allure of falling leaves and a star-studded sky, there's an age-old ritual that takes on a new dimension — the comforting clink of glasses, the feeling of fellowship, and shared stories. But what if this ritual didn't need to be shadowed by the dreary aftermath of too much alcohol? What if we could enjoy the euphoria without the inevitable descent?
This isn't a whimsical daydream. No — it's the tangible reality of non-alcoholic drinks. So come, wrap your hands around a warming elixir that perfectly complements the crisp beauty of fall without falling prey to the pitfalls of alcohol.
As autumn's tendrils wrap around our daily lives, drawing us closer to crackling fires and shared stories, the scent of warming spices leaving a trail of magic in the air, we're increasingly turning to beverages that embody the spirit of celebration without the disruptive influence of alcohol.
An echo of the changing leaves outside our window, these functional drinks represent transformation, possibility, and an embrace of balance. It's a lasting shift that acknowledges the need for healthier alternatives without sacrificing the rich tapestry of flavors that our palates crave.
As the hush of fall invites introspection, you might find yourself yearning for tranquility, a quiet retreat into yourself. Picture this serenity manifested in a drink, an elixir that mirrors the calm beauty of the falling leaves and the crisp autumn air. Welcome to the realm of hemp-infused Aplós Calme.
A non-alcoholic spirit inspired by the rich, versatile history of hemp, this innovative blend fuses a complex array of citrus and herbal botanicals with broad-spectrum hemp, promising a sensory experience as calming as an autumn evening.
Unlike its alcoholic counterparts, Aplós Calme is designed to impart a gentle tranquility akin to the peaceful moments savored during the fall season. Teeming with beneficial compounds like terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids, this non-intoxicating botanical provides more than just an alternative to alcohol. It invites us to engage in the profound simplicity and beauty of a peaceful moment.
The magic of Calme lies not merely in its enticing taste but also in its capacity to inspire a tranquil state of mind. The active cannabinoids in the hemp plant are particularly revered for their potential to help support balance within the body.
By helping soothe tension and promoting a sense of calmness, our broad-spectrum, hemp-infused Calme aligns beautifully with the ethos of fall, a time when we naturally seek solace, reflection, and the uplifting calm that comes with cooler, quieter days. With each sip, you're invited into a realm of natural wisdom, where the serenity of the season finds expression in a sophisticated array of flavors.
As the autumn wind rustles through the trees, there's a sense of vitality and invigoration in the air, a call to embrace the new season with open arms. Complementing this rhythm of nature are adaptogen-infused spirits, beverages that capture the essence of vitality and resilience.
Adaptogens — these plant-based wonders are believed to aid our bodies in adapting to stress and promoting overall balance. They're nature's answer to the ups and downs of life, much like the cyclic change of seasons.
Infusing spirits with adaptogens transforms them into vessels of energy and elevation, making them perfect companions for the lively moments of fall, like a joyous harvest festival or a heartwarming family dinner. These functional beverages excite the senses, offering a steady, energetic feeling that contrasts and yet complements the tranquil notes of hemp-infused spirits.
Aplós Arise is a harmonious blend of citrus and herbal botanicals fused with a proprietary selection of adaptogens. This functional spirit embodies resilience, making it an easygoing companion for the season's spirited moments — think animated gatherings around bonfires or the exuberant cheer of a harvest festival.
So, as the season turns and the air begins to chill, we're not just reaching for our scarves and sweaters. We're reaching for drinks that offer more than just temporary warmth and fleeting euphoria. We're gravitating towards beverages that whisper tales of transformation, mirroring the beautiful dance of falling leaves outside our windows.
A new way of living, a new way of drinking, rooted in the ethos of balance and conscious living. It’s the dawn of a new season in more ways than one.
Embracing the sensory journey that comes with the transition of the seasons, we invite you to explore an array of fall-inspired, non-alcoholic recipes. These elixirs carry within them the soulful rhythm of autumn, resonating with the ebb and flow of our bodies and the deep-seated desire for holistic wellbeing.

As the whispering wind ushers in the cozy ambiance of fall, the Monday 5:15, steeped in Aplós Calme, serves as a respite from the rush of the world.

The rich blend of espresso and spiced agave syrup mimics the inviting warmth of a crackling hearth, enriching the tranquility of fall evenings.
To make the syrup, dissolve ½ cup of agave nectar with ½ cup of hot water and stir gently to mix. Add a split vanilla bean, two cinnamon sticks, and four smashed green cardamom pods. Leave to infuse for a few hours or overnight.
Add all ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake. Strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with coffee beans, if you please.
These autumnal concoctions encapsulate the feelings of transformation, possibility, and unity. Enjoy them while basking in the crisp fall air, surrounded by falling leaves and the comforting embrace of loved ones.
Fall, with its crisp air and fiery palette, invites us into a symphony of flavors waiting to be discovered and celebrated. As the world around us changes, so too do our taste buds, yearning for ingredients that echo the season's spirit.
Consider maple, with its sweet, earthy tones reminiscent of trees ablaze with color, or the comforting warmth of cinnamon, evoking the cozy sanctuary of a home filled with love as the days grow shorter. Citrus, like blood orange, channels the fading rays of the setting sun, and apple apple with its crisp tartness and sweet undertones an emblem of the harvest season.
These autumnal ingredients offer an opportunity to truly harmonize with the season, inviting us to create our own bespoke cocktails, and infusing our beverages with the distinct charm of fall. By using Aplós spirits, we can imbue these drinks with an additional layer of depth and sophistication, the calming tranquility of Calme, or the dynamic energy of Arise.
