Pumpkin Caipirinha Cocktail

An Unbelievably Weird Way to Enjoy Pumpkin That Just Works

If you think that pumpkin is only good for pie or lattes, this lightened-up cocktail recipe is bound to change your mind. It's not weighed down with sugary juice or refined sugar — just a touch of agave to round out the naturally sweet and antioxidant-rich pumpkin. The ginger not only adds a spicy kick to the cocktail but also lends its detoxifying properties to the drink. Say cheers to your favorite cocktail of Fall.
