Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Cocktail

Creating cocktails for every season has become one of my favorite things about my blog. But when I was challenged by a friend to come up with a pumpkin spice whiskey cocktail, I was a bit terrified. I was afraid I wouldn’t make something that tastes enough like pumpkin spice but also taste good at the same time.

I reached out to my good buddies over at Rebecca Creek Whiskey for the yummy spirits and went from there. Try this one on a cool night, or even out by the camp fire. I must say, I am pretty impressed with this drink, I hope you like it.

    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few people are
    speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled
