Bourbon Pumpkin Smash


Makes 1

2 oz. bourbon

1/2 oz. orange juice

orange bitters

ginger beer

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


cinnamon stick for garnish

  1. To start off we have to make the pumpkin syrup. In a saucepan combine the maple syrup, water, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Boil for 5 minutes and then remove from the heat. You will have enough syrup left to make a couple more cocktails. Reserve the rest of the syrup in the fridge and heat it back up when ready to use again.

  2. Place in a cocktail shaker with ice, 2 tablespoons of the pumpkin syrup, bourbon, orange juice, and a pinch of orange bitters. Shake to well combine.

  3. Strain the mixture into a glass and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
