Pumpkin Steamer

Holiday Cocktail Recipe

Pumpkin Steamer

 
  • 1 oz. canned pure pumpkin purée
  • 2 oz. whole milk
  • 1/4 oz. rich simple syrup
  • 1 oz. aged rum
  • 1 oz. Galliano
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Garnish: freshly grated nutmeg

Combine the pumpkin puree, milk, and syrup in a saucepan and heat until hot but not boiling. Combine the spirits and bitters in a preheated snifter and add the hot mixture. Garnish with nutmeg.

 

Trade Secret: Simple Syrup

Switch Up Your Sweetener

Simple syrup provides the essential needed balance—but no flavor—in drinks mixed with fresh citrus. When the mercury drops, make rich simple syrup with 2 parts Demerara sugar to 1 part water, or use maple syrup. Use half the amount of regular simple syrup called for in the recipe to enrich brown spirit-based drinks balanced with aromatic bitters. For white spirit-based drinks, try using honey or agave syrup (1 part each sweetener and hot water, stirred until dissolved) to add complexity and body. Pomegranates can be pressed and sweetened into grenadine, or fresh juice can be purchased and sweetened with superfine sugar. Almond and orange flower water-based orgeat provides a bright, nutty accent that works especially well in rum and brandy-based cocktails.
