Pumpkin Cocktails

It’s that time of year again at Starbucks when they bust out the Pumpkin Spice Latte and all is good in my world.pumpkin patch

From now until the time when they retire the drink for the year, I’ll gorge myself on the yummy, fattening drinks and be ridiculously happy.

One thing that the Pumpkin Spice Latte has taught me is that I really like pumpkin. And since I really like booze too, I decided to search for some pumpkin cocktails.

These are especially timely since Halloween is on its way and who doesn’t want some “themed” drinks for Halloween and Thanksgiving?
