We’ve reached the triumphant and glorious climax of Pumpkin Mania! While the pumpkin-flavored-everything crazy starts earlier and earlier every year, the party always comes to a crashing end when the clock strikes midnight on Thanksgiving. After that, we all collectively kick our pumpkin addiction cold turkey and move on to a month-long peppermint-fueled binge.

So this is it: crunch time. In just a few short days all the pumpkin-related products will disappear from the store shelves until Labor Day next year (if we’re lucky), so pack it in while you still can.

To honor the final days of pumpkin season (and to help smooth over the extended family awkwardness at Thanksgiving) we’ve developed a warming whiskey cocktail to keep you in good spirits for the rest of the week: Spiked Pumpkin Chai.

Similar to a dirty chai latte, but with the addition of pumpkin butter and bourbon. Perfect for sipping around the campfire!
