Jason Smith’s Slap Yo Pumpkintini Cocktail Recipe

Celebrate the season with this spiced and sweet cocktail from chef Jason Smith. Rimming the glass in syrup and graham crackers is optional, but well worth the extra effort. Watch “Lord Honey” make it on our IGTV page!

Slap Yo Pumpkintini
Makes 1 cocktail


Crushed graham cracker
Pumpkin pie spice
Granulated sugar
1 ounce pure maple syrup, plus more for the glass
3 ice cubes
