The Rummy Pumpkin

The Rummy Pumpkin

This close to Halloween, we've all seen our share of pumpkin cocktails, typically made with vodka. So...a rum based pumpkin cocktail you say? Oh, hell yes, we say! This drink is divine and will make you forget all other versions of pumpkin cocktails.

The Rummy Pumpkin
We've done it two ways - straight and a creamier, more decadent version with a bit of ice cream. Sooooo delicious! In fact, we've pretty much decided that this will be our "house" cocktail when people gather at our home for Thanksgiving. But, for now, happy Halloween and cheers!

Per Serving:
2 oz. Rum
2 oz. Half and half
1 1/4 oz. Pumpkin puree
1/2 oz. Simple syrup
1/2 oz. Chocolate liqueur
Pinch of cinnamon

Shake well over ice and pour into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

To make the ice cream version, eliminate the 2 oz. of half and half and add 2 oz. of vanilla ice cream instead.


We'd love to hear from you!
