Falling leaves and temperatures mean it's time to pull out the sweaters, start the bonfires, and drink apple cider or lattes with added cinnamon and pumpkin spice.

Mixing spices into cocktails enhances whiskey's inherent baking-spice notes, like cinnamon, clove, and vanilla, and the right balance of ingredients keeps these drinks from becoming sweeter than pie.
