Hey, pumpkin spice lattes shouldn't be having all the fun. When it comes to seasonally spun drinks, your cocktails could use some of the warming, spiced vibes of the fall as well. Shake up these festive pumpkin cocktails all seasonal long and plan on them as you prep for Thanksgiving.

Treat yourself to Sandra Lee's spirited Pumpkin Sangria, a festive drink full of fall flavors. It's a blend of wine and fruit juice, just like classic sangria, but it deviates with the addition of pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and pumpkin spice liqueur. Stir it with a garnish of pumpkin candy-topped cinnamon sticks before you take the first sip.

Pumpkin pie is likely one of the most-sliced pies of the fall, so it's no wonder it's been adapted to be guzzled down in drink form. Served in a glass rimmed with crushed graham crackers, this Pumpkin Pie Martini is a creamy and spiced drink that tastes just like the famed dessert, thanks to pumpkin spice liqueur, vanilla-flavored vodka, half-and-half and more.

How do you get a drink called Jack the Pumpkin? You shake up applejack with all the good stuff, like ginger beer, apple cider and, last but not least, pumpkin puree. Garnish with apple slices for a drink that is fall-themed through and through.

Bourbon, spices, caramel and pumpkin puree come together for this autumnal, aromatic drink: the Pumpkin Flip. Use a "dry shake" method to froth eggs in your cocktail shaker and bring more body and foam to every last sip.
