Even though the month of October ended yesterday, pumpkin is still very much a viable ingredient all the way through November so I figured...let's make some cocktails with a little pumpkin! I discovered this recipe, along with a ton of other great cocktail recipes, on the Kitchen Konfidence blog. This is one of the few vodka recipes I have made on this blog and you could easily switch out the spirit on this recipe for a spiced rum or even a bourbon. I love the seasonal taste of the pumpkin in literally everything and while i enjoyed this cocktail, it definitely lends itself to more of a carbonated smoothie taste than a stiff drink! I added a few dashes of cardamom bitters to give this drink a little interesting spice. I would also recommend a tiny punch of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon to garnish!
