2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
1 TBS canned pumpkin pie mix (make sure it’s pumpkin pie mix, not just canned pumpkin)
1/2 oz spiced syrup (see recipe)
4 cinnamon sticks (3-inch size)
8 small slices fresh ginger (skin on is fine)
1/2 a vanilla bean (split open)
30 whole allspice berries
20-25 whole cloves (stems on)
6 whole star anise pods
2 cups of sugar
2-3/4 cups of water
Simmer all ingredients on low heat for 30 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat and let steep for another 2-3 hours. Add a little water if the mixture is too viscous (resembling thickness of honey). Then, strain into a glass container and store in the refrigerator until needed.
Shake all ingredients and DOUBLE STRAIN into a coupe or martini glass.
