Changing leaves and winter jackets seem the stuff of fairy tales to longtime Phoenix residents, but there’s one aspect of fall that locals can always count on: pumpkin-flavored everything. Come November, the sumptuous squash assumes a starring role in lattes, desserts and adult-friendly libations like this sweet and spicy fall special from Bobby-Q. Made with real pumpkin and molasses-tinged bourbon, this tasty cocktail is like holiday pie in a glass.

Combine 2 1/2 oz. Buffalo Trace whiskey with 1 oz. butterscotch Schnapps, 2 oz. pumpkin pie purée and 3 oz. half and half in a standard mixer. Shake well over ice. Lightly rim a martini glass with caramel and dip into graham cracker crumbs. Gently pour the mixture and top with whipped cream for a liquid dessert your Thanksgiving guests will gobble right up.
