Pumpkin Chills Cocktail At The Barclay Bar InterContinental Hotel

Pumpkin Chills Cocktail, $16 At Barclay Bar In The InterContinental New York Barclay Lobby. Available From October 15 To November 29.


With crisp weather and the leaves changing, it’s the best time of year to enjoy pumpkin. This month, try it in a delicious seasonal cocktail.

Pumpkin Chills is a delightful mix of fresh pumpkin puree, vodka, Cointreau, rosemary syrup and lemon juice. The recipe was created by Mixologist Jose Torrella of Barclay Bar, located in the lobby of InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel. At Barclay Bar, Torrella uses pumpkin puree from a garden-grown pumpkin on the hotel’s rooftop. You can also use store-bought pumpkin puree, such as Organic Pumpkin Puree by Pacific Foods, as an alternative.

Make this cocktail at home! The full recipe is below.
