Everywhere you look you're seeing signs for pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins and apple cider. It's official: autumn has arrived.

While these drinks may be delicious (just admit it, you love a good pumpkin spice latte every once in a while), guzzling the flavors of fall gets a little old, past the first two weeks of October.

Lucky for you, the cocktail book "Speakeasy" has over 80 different recipes for delicious prohibition era cocktails to get you through the season, with your sanity intact.

"Speakeasy" comes from the mixologists at the classic New York speakeasy-ish bar, Employees Only. These guys only use the freshest ingredients, and take inspiration from traditional favorites, then add an original spin to it, that elevates the cocktail to a whole new level.

Go ahead and mix up one of these refreshing flavors, you can thank yourself later.
