Chowhounds offer up recipes for cocktails with autumnal flavors:

jpschust recommends Woodford bourbon for the Maple Leaf:

3 parts bourbon
1 part maple syrup
1 part lemon juice

Shake over ice, then pour over ice. Serve with a lemon twist.

ashwood says Fallen Leaves has a very clean flavor:

3/4 oz. calvados
3/4 oz. sweet vermouth
1/4 oz. dry vermouth
lemon peel

Stir with ice, giving the lemon peel a good hard twist. Strain into a cocktail glass, using the peel for garnish.

1 part pumpkin schnapps
splash of cream or splash of orange juice
