Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

Happy Hour: Pumpkin Spice

Around this time of year, I look for alternative uses of pumpkin puree. While I've stirred it into soups and cake batter, I've never seen it as a cocktail ingredient before. Naturally, when I read this recipe, I was very interested in how it would taste. It's a simple mixture of ginger-flavored vodka, lime juice, honey water, and pumpkin puree. The liquids thin out the dense, thick pumpkin, and the resulting concoction is a light, gingery drink with slightly sweet pumpkin undertones. It has a wonderful orange color and nice refreshing quality. I enjoyed it with kale Caesar salad, but it's perfectly drinkable on its own. Interested in the easy recipe? Read more.
