Cocktail Advent 7: Pumpkin Rum Old Fashioned


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.
