'Tis the season for all things apples, from sweet classics like pies, tarts and breads, to the savory side of the menu with hearty pork roasts and fresh salads. But what happens at cocktail hour? It turns out that you can enjoy the taste of autumn's signature flavor in drink form, too. On this morning's all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts celebrated the best flavors of fall with go-to seasonal recipes, including Geoffrey Zakarian's Apple Sorbet, Scotch and Soda Float.

It takes only those three key ingredients and a quick five minutes to make this adults-only cocktail, which doubles as a dessert, thanks to the scoops of refreshing apple sorbet in each class. The secret to serving GZ's recipe? Freezing the glasses before filling them with the sorbet, which will help keep the drink chilled longer.

Check out all of the fall-focused recipes from today's episode of The Kitchen, and tune in to a new episode next Saturday at 11a|10c.
