Halloween Cocktail: Pumpkin Old Fashioned

Forget the pumpkin mousse (or the kid’s candy stash); this year serve the grown-ups a pumpkin-inspired cocktail instead. Bourbon, maple syrup, and pumpkin–festive yet classic flavors, and it’s perfect right through Thanksgiving.


2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

1½ ounces bourbon

1 ounce maple syrup

½ ounce Grand Marnier

Dash orange bitters

Orange peel twist, for garnish


Combine pumpkin puree, bourbon, syrup, Grand Marnier, and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled old fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with orange twist.
