Maker's 46 Haunted Old Fashioned: Whisk(e)y Wednesday

by Sydney Blanchard

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. As a kid I excitedly planned my costumes months in advance and reveled in all things scary and creepy as a teenager. 

Now, I'm just trying to get a little buzz going and eat some Halloween Oreos while watching Hocus Pocus on my couch. 

Maker's must have read my mind, because they came up with this very spooky, pumpkin-y Old Fashioned recipe that's perfect for sipping at home while handing out candy to trick-or-treaters or at your annual Halloween bash.

Check it out, and report back your findings.

Maker's 46 pumpkin inspired Old Fashioned

4 parts Maker’s 46
1 ½ parts pumpkin syrup*
8 dashes angostura bitter
8 dashes orange bitters
4 orange peels, squeeze oil from zest into tin

Shake all ingredients with orange peels and then strain into pumpkin filled with fresh ice. Add orange peels for decoration and top with a splash of soda water. Garnish with a handful of candy corn & enjoy as a Halloween snack and a drink in one!

*Pumpkin Syrup: Remove seeds from a whole pumpkin and cut into slices that can be juiced. (A small pumpkin will yield approx. 1 cup of juice.) In a saucepan over low heat, combine 1 cup pumpkin juice and 1 cup organic evaporated cane sugar with 2 whole cinnamon sticks. Heat until sugar is dissolved, let cool before using. Alternatively: buy natural pumpkin syrup.
