We’re unsure how previous Linus van Pelt is by now. (Do fictional characters age?) However we’d wish to assume that Charles Schulz’ well-known blanket-toting character would approve of this specific Nice Pumpkin. Caitlin Mackey, the bar supervisor at Livermore’s The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards, has whipped up a Nice Pumpkin cocktail that mixes bourbon with golden squash and different fall flavors.
Right here’s the best way to make it at residence: In a cocktail shaker filler with ice, mix 1.5 ounces of pureed backyard pumpkin or pink kuri squash, 1.5 ounces bourbon, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and the juice of a lemon quarter. Pressure right into a cocktail glass, prime with apple cider and garnish with micro greens. Serves one hopeful pumpkin patch spectator.
