Bartender Michael Smith’s Hey Punkin’ is a delicious, crisp whiskey cocktail that’s perfect for the colder months. Made with a base of Slow & Low Rock N’ Rye, a housemade espresso pumpkin spice syrup, aquafaba and fresh-squeezed lemon juice, it’s not only 100 percent vegan, but it also has a beautiful frothy (egg white-free) head. Smith says that the inspiration for the cocktail came from “the natural richness and depth of flavor in fresh pumpkin.” Unlike most “pumpkin spice” drinks, this cocktail has an abundance of both.
