This fun autumn-worthy drink originated inside Boston's The Boxer hotel in 2013 and is a delightful pumpkin cocktail. It also requires no muddling, so it is easier to mix up than the classic Old-Fashioned.

The Finch's Pumpkin Old-Fashioned is a simple mix of bourbon and Grand Marnier with pumpkin puree and maple syrup. If you are going to make it at home, ​we recommend making your own puree just like they do at Finch. It is very easy and the fresh puree makes this drink really special and tasty. Also, it is wise to fine-strain this one to ensure a clean drink.

  2. Shake well and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled with fresh ice.
