Pumpkin Spice Kentucky Mule

1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
23 dashes of bitters (I used angostura)
ginger beer
cinnamon sticks, for garnish


  1. Make the pumpkin butter by combining all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. Will last for 2 weeks in the fridge.
