What do you do with Leftover Pumpkin Syrup?

We still have loads of our pumpkin syrup left over in the fridge, so it was only a matter of time before it made its way into another cocktail.

This drink is a take on the “Gold Rush” cocktail, with Cinnamon infused bourbon (instead of “normal” bourbon) and pumpkin syrup instead of honey.

The result is just about the perfect whiskey cocktail for fall. (But I’m being redundant – whiskey is the perfect spirit for fall!) Plus, it’s only three ingredients – what’s not to love?
