Pumpkin and Spiced Rum Cocktail Recipe

A friend of mine had a similar recipe, made with white tequila, on her facebook page today. It sounded amazing so I decided to make my own.

Pumpkin Pie Cocktail

1 c. canned pumpkin
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw is a commonly-found brand)
2 T. maple syrup
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 dash ground ginger
1 dash ground cloves

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 1/4 c. batter and one shot (1 1/2 oz) spiced rum, like Sailor Jerry or (my favorite) Captain Morgan Private Reserve. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. If you have jumbo tanker glasses like we do, double the amounts.

This drink was super good by itself. I think it could only be improved by adding some crushed gingersnaps on the edge of the glass and a dollop of whipped cream to the top. Enjoy!
