2 tablespoons of organic pumpkin puree
1.5 oz Malibu rum

Creator’s Notes:  I was inspired by traditional Indian cuisine which calls for wonderful ingredients like coconut, ginger and curry. I’ve been experimenting with a variety of herbs and spices in chilis and soups and this cocktail just seemed to come together rather quickly.  The key to this drink is to chill the cocktail quickly, but not over dilute it while stirring.
