Fall Cocktail: Pumpkin Old Fashioned

The leave-crunching, pumpkin-picking, apple-eating season is upon us and what better way to celebrate than with a cozy fall cocktail?

First up: the Pumpkin Old Fashioned. This seasonal take on the classic cocktail adds sweet pumpkin and the great Canadian ingredient: maple syrup.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Dash bitters
Orange peel twist, for garnish

HOW TO DO IT

Combine pumpkin puree, bourbon, syrup, Grand Marnier and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
