The Great Pumpkin
Allison Kave of Butter & Scotch in Brooklyn says good pumpkin pie should always be scarfed down right after Thanksgiving dinner—no matter how full you are. But if you can’t finish the pie off in one sitting, she proposes infusing the leftovers into rye whiskey to make this pumpkin cocktail. Made with espresso liqueur and a lemon-lime mix, it’s a dessert cocktail for people who don’t like dessert cocktails.
Measure all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker.
Fill with ice, and shake hard until chilled.
Double strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a lemon wheel.
