Turkey and Sage Cocktail

Turkey and Sage Cocktail

[Photographs: Autumn Giles]

The extra kick of a high-proof bourbon is great up against the bold, woodsy sage in this cocktail. We used Wild Turkey 101, which offers caramel and vanilla notes that are an ideal match for pumpkin.

Note: I followed this recipe for pumpkin butter, but you could also use something store-bought and adjust the final drink for sweetness as needed.
