Autumn in my glass
Don't even think about waiting until Halloween!
The time to toss pumpkin into your cup or glass is right now.
It seems like each autumn I develop an obsession for a different seasonal fruit or vegetable.
At the moment I’m on the pumpkin kick :)
This Pumpkin and Apple Cider Fizz is a seasonal blend of pumpkin puree, vanilla vodka, cider and ginger beer.
The cocktail tastes very similar to pumpkin pie; however, it’s not overly sweet.
A perfect cocktail to enjoy the colourful autumn season and Halloween.
- 50ml pumpkin puree (canned or homemade*)
- 50ml vanilla vodka
- 60-70ml apple cider
- 50ml ginger beer
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add pumpkin puree, vanilla vodka and apple cider. Shake vigorously until well chilled.
Strain into a glass filled with ice and top off with ginger beer.
*To make pumpkin puree: Preheat your oven to 180C.
Cut a pie pumpkin in half and scoop out seeds and strands.
Place cut side down on a baking sheet and roast for 30 - 40 minutes until it’s soft.
