All right; it's that time of year. It's the time in which we consume more pumpkin everything than we can possibly imagine.

Whether it's in pie, bread, muffin, M&M, beer, or even Oreo form, we have plenty of options for getting our fall gourd on.

Speaking of which, bartender Kelsey Simon of Tin Fish Clematis had concocted a drunken pumpkin cocktail that will beat the heck out of any dish. Fortunately, she gave us the recipe.

Simon uses Pinnacle pumpkin pie vodka for this drink, but it can be made out of any pumpkin flavored liqueur for slightly different results.
