Compared to the all-night bar crawls and elaborate costume parties of autumns past, Halloween this year is looking a little more… understated. But that doesn’t mean we’re not celebrating at home. Put on that pumpkin costume you mistakenly bought on clearance last year, queue up Hocus Pocus, and get shaking for a cocktail that leans more sweet than spooky. This year has already been scary enough.
Pumpkin Spice Fizz
2oz AMASS Dry Gin
.75oz lemon juice
.75oz pumpkin spice simple syrup*
1 egg white
Pumpkin Spice, for garnish
Add gin, lemon, simple syrup, and egg white to shake. Dry shake hard, without ice, for 10-15 seconds to emulsify egg white. Then add ice, shake hard for another 10 seconds, and strain into a Collins glass. Add ice, top with soda, and sprinkle pumpkin spice on top of the cocktail.
*Make strong tea with a pumpkin spice tea and use tea in place of water to make 1:1 simple syrup
