2.5ouncesbourbon - (I prefer Four Roses Single Barrel)
2/3ouncepure maple syrup* - (I prefer Finding Home Farms)
1-2dashesdashes black walnut bitters**
Orange peel, cinnamon stick, and a bourbon cherry for garnish
In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine the bourbon, maple syrup, pumpkin purée, and bitters. Shake vigorously.
Add ice to a rocks glass, then strain in the cocktail mixture.
Squeeze the orange peel over the top of the cocktail to release the oils; then rub the orange peel around the rim of the glass.
Garnish with orange peel, cinnamon stick, and a bourbon cherry***.
*Use real maple syrup. Adjust the amount to suit your preferred level of sweetness.**Standard Angostura bitters work well here, too.***My recipe for homemade Bourbon Cherries will be posted soon. I will update this recipe with a link once that post is up.
