After seeing dozens of Pumpkin spice products at the grocery store yesterday, I got a little inspired:

2-2.5 OZ Bourbon or Rye (I used Michter's toasted barrel)

0.5 OZ JD Tennessee Fire

0.5 OZ Monin Pumpkin Spice syrup

2-3 dashes Fee Bros. Black Walnut bitters

Stir over ice, strain into old fashioned glass

Garnish- Chunk of Orange with whole cloves inserted

Sounds great, but what did you think?

I quite enjoyed it, but I'm a pumpkin fan.

i want to experiment with ratios, and base liquor (higher vs lower proof, Rye vs Bourbon, wheater vs high Rye, etc.)

Might have to experiment with something like this over the weekend.

Think I'll skip the Tennessee fire and make my own cinnamon infusion, though.

So I took a first swing at my own version, using this as my spice syrup:

2 oz. Baby Saz

1/2 oz. spice syrup

4 dashes Bitter Housewife Cardamom Bitters

Stir over ice and strain.

Taste was really good,but I think I let the syrup get too hot & boil, and it got this weirdly gummy texture.
