Offering a spin on the classic mojito beverage is this pumpkin version that captures the essence of autumn with a slight twist on a few of the ingredients. The drink subs in pumpkin in the place of mint to create a similar cocktail base with seasonal fruit.

Despite mojitos being a popular summer drink of choice, the cocktail is easily convertible to other months by swapping a few of the main ingredient for more seasonal ingredients. Rather than using solely mint, this version adds in pumpkin and also subs in brown sugar for white to create a more robust base. The pumpkin puree and brown sugar is then mixed with lime, club soda and rum and poured over ice. The addition of pumpkin gives the mojito's classic clear consistency a unique orange hue.
