Drunkin Pumpkin Whiskey Cocktail

What’s the best way to enjoy pumpkin? Drunkin, of course! So far, we’ve shared a spiced pumpkin pie cocktail with spiced rum and a pumpkin pie martini with pumpkin pie infused vodka. Now, it’s time to mix this bright orange squash with a different spirit to create this Drunkin Pumpkin Whiskey Cocktail!

Last month’s recipe round-up was centered on pumpkin. One of the recipes included was this gingered pumpkin butter made in a slow cooker. I’d been wanting to make pumpkin butter but hadn’t tried it yet. So, I bought myself two little pumpkins from the co-op and got out the crock pot.

As the pumpkin butter cooked down, the house started to smell amazing. Each time I opened the lid to stir, it was hard to not try a little taste, especially towards the end when it was really cooked down. But I resisted. At least until it was time to blend it all up.

If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making your own pumpkin butter for this pumpkin whiskey cocktail, you can find the pre-made stuff at the store. I know my mom bought a jar of pumpkin butter at Trader Joe’s and she said it was good. However, you might want to adjust the amount of lemon you add to your drink or leave it out altogether depending on the ingredients of the pumpkin butter you buy.
