Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Fizz

Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Fizz | Pale Yellow

Happy Halloween!  Here is a treat for all the grown-ups.  Put aside the candy and whip up a fancy cocktail.  Bourbon makes everything better!  Halloween is one of the holidays that is definitely better as an adult; you can buy your own candy, costumes can be subtle or outrageous, and booze.  I'm not dressing up this year, but I'm excited to be able to pass out candy!

For this special, fall themed-edition of Secret Recipe Club, I had Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla, you can read all about her!  She is not afraid of unique flavors and interesting ingredients.  I have had her blog several times before, and it is always a treat searching for fun recipe to try out.  Having her blog to find a fall themed recipe was so easy when she has participated in pumpkin week and has a great recipe index.

As everyone knows, bourbon is favorite.  Pumpkin and pumpkin spices are also favorites.  When it's all put together it's magic!  The drink is fantastic with the warm pumpkin spices and a little bit of creaminess from the actual pumpkin.  Pumpkin spice syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness.  Topping the drink with soda water is a lovely touch at the end.  There are few steps involved, but trust me, it's worth it!
