Pumpkin Vodka Recipe

This is the recipe for pumpkin vodka which I made during the Fall and the holidays. I would love to take credit, but alas, I cannot. It was created by the Chef Jerry Labooty and General  Manager Mark Rosenberger of the Greystone Restaurant in Pottsville, PA. I can say that it was easy to make and sooo good! One thing I would recommend is that if you aren't going to finish it quickly, I would strain the pumpkin vodka through a coffee filter and then chill in the fridge to encourage longevity with flavor! I halved the recipe and it came out perfectly. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Vodka Recipe

1 gallon jar with lid
3 small pumpkins
2 1.75 L vodka (Skyy was used, I used Absolut)
1 lb brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice

Remove stems from pumpkins, cut in half, and clean out seeds and fibers.
Steam halves for 10-15 minutes until a little soft.
Place halves, while still hot into 1 gallon jar.
Add all the other ingredients, seal jar.
Let sit for at least three days.
Enjoy!
