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.
