DIY Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Whiskey

Ingredients:

  • 1 (750ml) bottle of bourbon whiskey
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice

  1. De-seed your pumpkin and cut it into slices. Lay them in a prepared baking sheet (single layer), and roast them at 330 F for 45-69 minutes.
  2. Pour the whiskey into a mason jar or another air-tight container. I used a 1.5 L mason jar, so I would have plenty of room.
  3. Add the roasted pumpkin ans the pumpkin spice .
  4. Put the container somewhere safe and leave it alone for the next two weeks. NOTE (can shake it ever so often if needed) 
  5. Once two weeks has passed, strain the whiskey using cheesecloth or a nut milk bag.

1.5 oz Cherry Juice (you want that deep red color not fake red)

0.5 oz Maraschino Cherry Syrup (Syrup in cherry jar)

Add in your bar spoon, the ice to the liquid line, stir your cocktail until chilled, about 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass and serve. Garnish with orange peel or maraschino cherries. We recommend make this ahead of time and test out how to set up lighting on your drink table to get the most glitter effect. In a dark room the glitter is harder to see.
