Cocktail Couture: Watershed Gin Pumpkin Drop

I am very excited to present a fantastic blog collaboration combining a few of my favorite C's...cocktails, Columbus, and Catherine Murray of Photo Kitchen. Catherine is a fantastic food photographer, and fellow Edible Columbus contributer, responsible for some of my favorite features and covers! Now, together, with Catherine's blog, Freshly Baked, we are bringing you a series of drink recipes and photos entitled Cocktail Couture!

Here's what she had to say about Cocktail Couture:
"Haute Couture refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing, usually made from high-quality expensive fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques...The hand-crafted (local) alcohol is created by those dedicated to their craft, making award-winning bottles of gin, vodka, whiskey, wine, and Tessora." 

We both believe that the handiwork and detail that goes into the brewing and distilling of our local-to-Columbus spirits are nothing short of couture themselves, especially when paired with fun jewelry and accessories...and you all know I am a firm believer that the cocktail you sip is as much a part of the statement you are making as anything else on your body! So let's get creative!

Our first recipe uses Watershed Gin, an absolutely delicious locally made gin that goes beautiful in absolutely every drink. But in honor of Halloween, Catherine has mixed up a fun punch that's great for shots or small cocktails and it would be perfect to dress up for your Halloween festivities! Check out her recipe for the Pumpkin Drop below!
