Here’s a tasty Turkey Day treat – I used pumpkin syrup and Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon to create my version of the perfect holiday cocktail. The addition of maple flavored bitters really adds to the drink but any bitters will suffice. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
2 ounces Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon
1/2 ounce Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup
2 dashes maple bitters (I used Urban Moonshine)
Ice (use good bottled water for this!)
twist of orange
1 Lounge Attire Cocktail Cranberry (or Marashchino Cherry)
In a mixing glass combine ice, Bourbon, pumpkin syrup and bitters. Stir until desire dilution is achieved. Strain into an old fashioned or bucket style glass filled with ice. One of the easiest ways to greatly improve the overall quality of your cocktails is to use quality bottled water to make your ice. Finally, rub the orange around the ridge of the rim and twist over the cocktail making sure to release all of the oils contained in the peel. Submerge orange and cocktail cranberry in your super festive pumpkin old fashioned. Enjoy!
