We have one question: When is too much pumpkin too much pumpkin? Some say never. "Some" apparently includes Ferris Wheelers Backyard & BBQ, because they're offering a pumpkin cocktail. That's right, get your UGGs and leggings ready, ladies, because we found you the perfect football-watching, day-drinking, feels-fall cocktail.
It has all the hallmarks of the "basic" cocktail — take that comment as you will — with flavored vodka, pumpkin, some sweetness, pumpkin and, of course, a perfect backdrop for a hot fire Instagram pic. Too bad the picture may have to be taken wearing mittens.
The Pumpkin Wheel: vanilla vodka, pumpkin purée, orange juice, Grand Marnier, crushed graham cracker rim

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
