Pumpkin Pie Daiquiri for Fall

     Fall is here and that is the time when we get to enjoy pumpkin stuff.   Here is a pumpkin daiquiri that fits into the season perfectly, fall cocktails are some of the most flavorful and the always a favorite pumpkin make the season wide open for new ideas.   

     Give this idea a try, there are others that I am working on now.   Halloween and Thanksgiving are the perfect times for new pumpkin flavored cocktails and I'll be bringing you some new ones throughout the fall.

Bahama Bob’s Pumpkin Pie Daiquiri
  • 1 Heaping Bar Spoon of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 ½ oz. Coffee Mate Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice Creamer
  • ½ oz. Bahama Bob’s Pumpkin Pie Syrup
  • 2 oz. Afrohead Aged Rum

Place all of the ingredients except the rum in a bowl and swizzle until you get a smooth mix.  Pour into a shaker filled with ice, add ice and shake until chilled.  Strain through a sieve into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

Bahama Bob’s Pumpkin Pie Syrup
  • 1 ½ Cups of Dark Brown Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • ½ tsp. Lemon Juice

Place Sugar and the Pumpkin Pie Spice in a pan and heat on high and stir lightly until the sugar begins to melt.  Keep stirring and very slowly add the water.  Keep stirring and lower the temp to about 225 degrees and bring to a slow boil while stirring for five minutes.  Pour into a dish that can take heat and cold and place in the refrigerator until cooled.  Pour into a pouring dispenser and put back into the refrigerator until ready to use.  It will last about a month in the refrigerator.
