The only thing better than a slice of pumpkin pie is a beverage infused with bourbon, pumpkin, and cinnamon. The pumpkin pie smash cocktail is a dessert that will not ruin your dinner. The drink is best when made in small batches, so it is perfect for making a small pitcher to be shared with friends in front of a cozy fire. 


The flavors are fall-themed, and the pumpkin, bitters, and bourbon complement each other to create a homely taste. 

  • 2 oz bourbon 
  • 3 tablespoon pumpkin pie syrup 
  • 2 dashes bitters 

Mix pumpkin syrup and bitters over ice in a rocks glass. Add bourbon. Garnish with a cinnamon stick. 

Pumpkin syrup: 

Heat 1 cup water, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 1 cup sugar, and ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice over low heat. Whisk until sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and let cool. Add ½ tsp vanilla extract. Strain into a container. Store in the fridge for up to one week.
