It’s that time of year again. The first fire in the Burning Barn cabin marks the start of autumn and a shift from the refreshing fruity drinks of summer to warming autumnal offerings. In our little cabin we’ve been whisking up some fiery cocktails that with blow the socks off a Starbucks Spiced Pumpkin Latte any day and are sure to warm the cockles of soaked through walkers across the nation. Ideal to be enjoyed next to a roaring fire or the perfect companion for weekend hikes.
Pumpkin Spiced Bloody Mary
An alcoholic autumnal take on a summer smoothie, which will send your Vitamin C levels soaring. If you have a juicer, juice bright orange fruit and veg including - oranges, carrot, pumpkin, bell pepper and orange tomatoes (we used sungold variety). Alternatively grab an orange fruit and veg juice (Innocent or Naked juices work fantastically) add pumpkin flesh blend and strain through a fine sieve.
