Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Whiskey

Every September, I do nothing but pumpkin recipes. This year, I got to the end of the month before I thought, “Pumpkin spice bourbon whiskey!”

Well, it takes a while to make that happen, so that wasn’t happening in September. Doesn’t mean I can’t post it now, though! 😛

In case you haven’t noticed, I love bourbon. I love to put it in cake and I especially love to mix it with apple cider

But you know my favorite way to drink it? Straight, on ice. That’s it. Zach and I love to spend our Friday nights nursing a bourbon and playing some video games. (I haven’t stopped playing Dragon Age in about four months and I’m starting to think I have a problem…. Nah.) 

My favorite whiskeys, though (bourbon or not), are the ones that have different flavors infused. Blackberry, apple cider (especially apple cider), honey, etc. There’s even a pecan pie Canadian whiskey from Piehole that is fantastic. So I thought…why not pumpkin?

Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Whiskey

  • 1 (750 mL) bottle of bourbon whiskey
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 sugar pumpkin

Step 01: De-seed your pumpkin and cut it into slices. Lay them on a prepared baking sheet (single layer), and roast them at 350F for 45-60 minutes.

Step 02: Pour the whiskey into a mason jar or another air-tight container. I used a 1.5 L mason jar, so I would have plenty of room.

Step 03: Add the roasted pumpkin and the pumpkin pie spice.

Step 04: Put the container somewhere safe and leave it alone for the next two weeks. I kept mine on top of the fridge and, every once in a while, I would shake it and then put it back.

Step 05: Once your two weeks are up, strain the whiskey using cheesecloth or a nut milk bag

Once strained, you can drink this immediately. If you find the taste to be too strong, though, put it back in its air tight container and let it sit for another week. This will give the flavors time to mellow a little.

Basically, if you plan to distribute these as gifts, give yourself about a month to do it. 

As far as taste, I really enjoyed this. It had that bold, rugged taste of bourbon, but with a little pumpkin kick. 

This will make a great cocktail. Maybe I’ll see about coming up with some soon. 😀
