The wind is blowing, the ghosts are scaring and DJ Love at the Drawing Room is mixing up some tasty Halloween cocktails. In the famed Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago we find ourselves mesmerized by these hauntingly delicious cocktails. One in particular is the Pumpkin Caipirinha and the recipe is as simple as a witch’s brew of eyes, tongues, lizard tails and a dash of cobwebs…. seriously here it is;
1 ½ oz. Leblon Cachaca
½ oz. agave nectar
1 ½ oz. Pumpkin Puree
½ oz. Canton
Cut lime and place in a shaker with agave nectar and muddle. Add crushed ice, Leblon Cachaça, pumpkin puree and Canton in the shaker. Shake well and garnish with nutmeg, pumpkin flesh twist and lime wheel.
Although this cocktail will not promise to turn your worst enemy into a warlock it will send your taste buds on an evocative tour of Halloweens past.
