Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte


If the first warm day marks the start of spring, and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree rings in the start of the holiday season, then the introduction of Pumpkin Spice Lattes back into coffee shops has GOT to be the best indicator for the start of fall!


The only way to possibly improve upon this tasty drink is to spike it, of course! Delicious smooth bourbon does the trick in our recipe for spiked pumpkin spice lattes.
