Created by Whiteface Lodge’s Lead Mixologist Zachary Blair, the Zac-O-Lantern is a pumpkin-inspired highbal made only from fresh ingredients. Using spiced rum as the base, the cocktail is mixed with a handmade Hickory Syrup combined with a homemade pumpkin puree. The pumpkin pairs well with the Hickory and this syrup has a nice woody finish.Tthe drink is topped off with club soda, making this a light, refreshing autumn cocktail.
Editor’s Note: Hickory syrup is a bit like maple syrup only it’s made from the shagbark hickory tree. You can purchase hickory syrup from sources like Wildwood’s Hickory Syrup or you can substitute birch syrup, which you can buy at places like Kihiltna’s Birchworks. Or just substitute maple syrup (use the real stuff).
