How you doin’? Are you looking for a Pumpkin Cocktail that’s very sippable and not too sweet? Try my new favorite fall drink: The Great Pumpkin Old Fashioned!
If you’re a bourbon-lover it is a slow-sipper with back notes of vanilla, maple and pumpkin pie spice. It’s barely sweet and bourbon-forward, ideal for enjoying by the fireside for any fall occasion. While it’s bright orange, it tastes just like the Classic Old Fashioned you know and love…only cozier.
While the ingredients might make it seem like a sweet drink, this Pumpkin Old Fashioned is anything but! Take a sip and it tastes like bourbon on the front end, but the finish has a distinct nuance of spice.
The method for making a Pumpkin Old Fashioned cocktail is different from the typical Old Fashioned. For the classic, you muddle a sugar cube with bitters, then add the bourbon right in the glass. For the pumpkin version, though it might seem unconventional, you’ll have to shake it, baby! That’s because you the pumpkin puree has to be fully integrated into the drink… it helps make a beautiful orange color!
After shaking, strain it into an ice-filled glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick or a rosemary branch and orange peel, evoking the colors of a pumpkin.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1 drink
2 ounces American bourbon whiskey
1 tablespoon canned pumpkin puree
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 dash Angostura bitters
Ice, for serving (try clear ice!)
ChefSecret: When making an Old Fashioned, a big ice cube is key. Make a batch of clear Ice for the best results.
Quip of the Day: Think about this, somebody’s psychiatrist knows all about you.
