Pumpkin Cocktail Recipe With Rum and Pumpkin Puree

A Sippable and Not-Too-Sweet Pumpkin Pie Tipple


Photo: Nancy Einhart

The idea of a cocktail made with canned pumpkin both fascinates and frightens me. But since we love pumpkin around here, this Thanksgiving, I set out to design a cocktail that was easy on the palate and slightly sweet but not dessert-like, with the pumpkin pie flavor I love.

After much searching, I stumbled upon a pumpkin pie cocktail that sounded almost perfect, so I made a few tweaks, substituting spiced rum for the vodka the recipe called for. I have to say, the resulting pumpkin pie potable did not disappoint.

Making your own pumpkin cocktail used to be the only way to avoid lousy sugary products made with artificial orange color & fake pumpkin flavor. But now you can get an all-natural pumpkin liqueur made from fresh roasted pumpkins that were grown to ripeness just 5 miles from a distillery ... that's as local and fresh as it gets. Pumpkin King Cordial by Roundhouse Spirits is available to most states by shipment and it can be purchased in person at stores in NYC, DC, Chicago, and throughout Colorado. Sold in 375ml half bottles it's the perfect gift to bring along to Thanksgiving.

I love recipes with pumpkin in them. It seems like you do too. Now that it's thanksgiving season, it is the perfect excuse to go crazy with all things pumpkin. I'll be sure to try this cocktail. I can enjoy it while I make my favourite pumpkin pancakes (http://www.topholidayrecipes.com/easy-pancakes.html) for breakfast! I reccommend it!
