With the leaves changing and the weather beginning to shift, our cocktails go from light, bright clear spirit offerings to something a bit richer. For those looking for something that feels seasonal without the usual coffee and pumpkin spice flavors that dominate Halloween cocktails, try Gabriel Rieben's pumpkin-orange "Bold & Smokey." With a looming smokiness of a bubbling cauldron fire, it's the perfect stiff sip for an eerie evening.
