The cocktail has a rich, creamy texture from the addition of egg, which also adds a velvety foam on top. The main flavor comes from the combination of tangy lemon juice and warm, earthy bourbon, giving it a perfect balance of sweet and tart. But the real star of this drink is the spiced pumpkin syrup, which adds a subtle sweetness and a delicious hint of fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. This unique ingredient truly captures the essence of the season and makes the Pumpkin Sour a must-try for any cocktail enthusiast.
