The following drink recipes may sound like a horror to you, but they will help fortify anyone facing the darkest and coldest days of the year.

Great Gus' Great Pumpkin (Thanks Gus C.!)

1 part Hiram Walker's Pumpkin Liqueur
1 part Fulton's Harvest Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur
2 parts vanilla vodka
1 part ginger ale

PDT Restaurant's breakfast-inspired OLD FASHIONED:

2 ounces bacon-infused bourbon
1/4 ounce Grade B maple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Twist of orange

Strain into chilled glass filled with ice. As a friend said to me, "It's breakfast in a glass!"
