Pumpkin is not just for October, you know? With the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie finished off and not yet time for Christmas dessert, maybe this twist on an old-fashioned favorite will help tide you over.
Pumpkin Rum Old Fashioned
– Created by Mixologist Eddie Fuentes from Finka Table & Tap in Miami.
- 1 Dash Angostura Bitters
- 1 Dash Angostura Orange Bitters
- .5oz Homemade Pumpkin Pie Syrup
- 2oz Caliche Rum
- Orange Twist
- Toasted Marshmallow
- Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
An Old Fashioned, of course, is generally made with whisk(e)y but I can see the rum working here just fine. This is a drink you build in the glass and stir with a spoon with just an ice cube or two to chill it. The twist, marshmallow, and pumpkin seeds are obviously a garnish but I think I’d leave out the last two.
