Smokin’ Pumpkin

Smokin’ Pumpkin 🎃

1 Tbsp Ground Ginger

1 Tbsp Sonoma Sea Salt

1/2 Tsp Ground Nutmeg

1 lime wedge

1 1/2 oz MeZcal (for less Smokey flavor use a quality Anejo Tequila)

1/4 oz Allspice Dram

1/4 oz Amaretto

1 oz Pumpkin Purée

3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice

1/2 oz Agave Nectar/Syrup

Garnish with a slice of any roasted squash

On a small plate combine ground ginger, Sonoma sea salt & ground nutmeg. Take your lime wedge and roll it around the rim of your rocks style cocktail glass. Dip the wet rim onto the plate of salted spice mixture. Add a large ice cube into your glass. Set aside. In a cocktail shaker, add all the liquid ingredients and a measure of ice. Close shaker and shake vigorously until well chilled and the purée is integrated. Strain over the prepared cocktail glass, garnish and enjoy!
