The inspiration is the popularity of pumpkin spice lattes from popular coffee chains. These seasonally available lattes inspire a feverish excitement every Fall among young women. Initially I called the cocktail the ‘Becky’, a tongue in cheek acknowledgement of those patrons. For the hotel world I adjusted it to ‘bed and breakfast’ on honor of our corner of the hospitality world, but still keeping the initials B&B for those basic young ladies.
