Oh My Gourd!
It’s that time of the year again! With the first week of October now behind us it is now “Pumpkin Everything” time.
With pumpkins being 90 percent water, they make a perfect base for a cocktail. Executive Chef Admir Alibasic of Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse has created a tempting Pumpkin Cocktail. You can find the cocktail on the menu for $12.95 regularly or for $7.95 during happy hour…or you can give a go at trying to mix it up yourself with the below recipe.
