Check Out These Exclusive Halloween Themed Foods Available in Philly!
Halloween is just around the corner, which means pumpkin season is in full swing… And oh my gourd, Philadelphia has plenty of pumpkin picks to choose from — from a Pumpkin Cranberry boule at Chestnut Hill’s Baker Street Bread Co., to a seasonal cocktail from Bluebird Distilling, and a creamy milkshake courtesy of Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop.
The Pumpkin Smash from award-wining grain-to-glass craft distillery, Bluebird Distilling, is, quite simply, boozy pumpkin pie in a glass. The sweet and nutty nature of the White Rye Whiskey makes it a natural combination for more earthy cocktail elements, like pumpkin. The egg white binds the elements together, and brings that creamy texture and mouth-feel of a real piece of homemade pumpkin pie. It’s topped off with some fresh-grated cinnamon to make the perfect fall beverage. This cocktail is worth the trip out to the Phoenixville distillery.
