When you’ve had one too many taste test of a new Pumpkin Spice-infused bourbon and ‘Drown’ by the The Smashing Pumpkins mysteriously plays on iTunes (I honestly don’t remember downloading their Greatest Hits Album) you don’t ignore the signs. You muster all the sobriety you have in you and make a drink!
Smashing Pumpkins in Manhattan
3 oz. Pumpkin spice-infused bourbon
1 oz. dry vermouth
½ oz. maple syrup
– combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice
– shake vigorously
– double strain into chilled cocktail glass

Surprise, its good when sober too!
