Homemade lemon-pumpkin soda is easy to prepare in just a few minutes and lends the Smashing Pumpkin by James Horn a fresh fall flavor. A base of aged rum and allspice liqueur add warming contrast, making this the perfect way to incorporate the season’s favorite squash in your cocktails.


  • 1 1/2 ounces aged rum
  • 1/2 ounce allspice liqueur
  • 3 ounces lemon-pumpkin soda*
  • Garnish: bay leaf


  1. Add the rum and liqueur into a Collins glass with ice.

  2. Top with the lemon-pumpkin soda.

  3. Garnish with a bay leaf.

*Lemon-pumpkin soda: Add 12 ounces pumpkin puree (canned, or to make fresh, roast seeded pumpkin at 350° for 45 minutes and puree in a food processor), 4 ounces fresh lemon juice and 2 ounces water into a soda siphon and charge with 1 CO2 cartridge.
