When fall hits, cocktails move away from citrus and towards heartier flavours – and this spicy autumnal treat is a must-try.


2 oz. Buffalo Trace bourbon

1 oz. pumpkin shrub

1 oz. winter spice syrup

0.5 oz. egg white, infused with 0.5 oz. fresh squeezed carrot juice

Shake all wet ingredients together in a cocktail shaker; shake again after adding ice. Strain and pour.


Pumpkin Shrub

2 cups pumpkin, chopped into 1-inch cubes

1 cup white sugar

1 cup apple cider vinegar

Combine and stir all ingredients in a container; cover with paper towel or clean cloth.

Winter Spice Syrup

1 oz. cinnamon

1 oz. coriander

0.5 oz. nutmeg

6 oz. whole cloves

Simmer ingredients in 16 oz. of water for 15 minutes; add 16 oz. of white sugar and stir until dissolved. Store in a clean bottle and let it cool. The syrup can also be used to spice up your fall brew.
