Raising the Bar with Jamie Boudreau: Pumpkin King Cocktail


Before you break in to that pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, check out this innovative concoction from Jamie Boudreau of Canon Seattle. The Pumpkin King was inspired by the great seasonal pumpkin ales that pop up this time of year. Jamie uses Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale from Southern Tier Brewing Co. to create a beer liqueur which he uses as the foundation for the cocktail. With its soft yet rich flavor, Pigs Nose Scotch Whisky is the perfect compliment to the deep spice of the
