What is a celebration without a signature punch? I was in the mood for a cocktail a few days ago and ended up coming up with a Spoo-tackular drink. If you know my husband and I…you know we love a good Old Fashioned. I added pumpkin butter to my traditional Old Fashioned recipe and I also substituted apple cider for the simple sugar and this ended up being the perfect spin for a traditional fall cocktail. This drink is perfect to serve at any gathering for the fall. It would be an exciting punch to make with kids for sure. Happy Drinking-Omniley
