This thing you should try: Estadio’s pumpkin slushito

If you fall into the roughly 99 percent of the population obsessed with the sweet, only nominally pumpkin-flavored pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, you're going to want to sip Estadio's current seasonal offering: a slushito flavored with actual pumpkin.

The cocktail ($9) finds its way back to the Estadio menu each fall, and bartenders plan to keep the slushito -- a burnt-orange puree of pumpkin, cinnamon and a dollop of the restaurant's addictive smoked Spanish paprika -- churning through the holidays.

The frosty drink is pumpkin forward, despite a kick of Earl Grey-infused scotch. In fact, it's pretty much pie, in a glass.
