  • 2 ½ ounces Bacardi 8 year aged rum
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • ¾ ounces lemon juice
  • ¾ ounces orange juice
  • ½ ounce spiced pumpkin purée
  • ½ ounce date molasses
  • 1 dash Fee Brothers Original Bitters
  • Ground nutmeg, for garnish

Directions

Shake all of the ingredients hard over ice. Serve in a burgundy glass and garnish with nutmeg.

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
