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.

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.
