CURED NUTRITION PUMPKIN SPICE OLD FASHIONED
Warming up the holidays with this fireside Pumpkin Spice Old Fashion is a necessity in the Cured Kitchen. Below we’ve outlined the perfect Cured Nutrition Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup for an easy to throw together mixture for you to keep refrigerated for several weeks when your house is full and your friends and family are thirsty!
Normally, for making an individual Old Fashioned, you can mull together bitters, one sugar cube, an orange etc. Having a simple syrup, however, is how a professional mixologists would handle preparation.
ICE CUBES. Smaller ice cubes create more surface area watering down your cocktail faster. We like to use one large ice cube per cocktail. To make your large ice cubes clear and presentable, freeze them a day prior to use by filling with HOT water. Filling an ice cube tray with room temperature or cold water makes them cloudy looking.
SPICES. Where would we be in the culinary world without spices? Adding texture and flavor to anything can increase the endorphin release of food tremendously. Thats why we add it to our main dishes, sides, and even beverages. Cured Nutrition brings you fresh Colorado Organic spice blends to make your meals more colorful & overall enjoyable. Infusing spices as a rub or with heat helps release their essential oils. Another way to chemically release a spice is to infuse them with a liquid which is exactly what we’re working with below.
Cured Pumpkin Spice Old Fashioned
(simple syrup serves approx. 6-8 beverages)
- 2 T CURED Pumpkin Spice
- 2 T CURED Cinnamon & Honey

Add 2 tablespoons of your homemade Pumpkin Spice Old Fashioned Simple Syrup to the glass and 1 slice of orange. Mull together the orange slice and simple syrup. Next, add 1 large ice cube with 2 Oz Bourbon poured over (recommend Breckenridge Bourbon to be paired with Colorado Organic CURED NUTRITION Spices). Keep it natural and local! Place 1 orange slice and 1 Maraschino cherry in the glass for your garnish.
