Butternut Squash Infused Bourbon (and a Butternut Manhattan!)
- 2 cups cubed butternut squash
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 cups bourbon
- 1 to 2 dashes angostura bitters
- 1/2 to 1 ounce dry vermouth
- 2 to 3 ounces butternut infused bourbon
- luxardo cherries plus their syrup! for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the cubed squash on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with the sugar and the cinnamon. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until it's somewhat dried out but also tender. Remove the squash and let it cool.
Place the squash in a large container or mason jar. Pour the bourbon over top and cover the jar. Let it sit and infuse for a week or two. When ready to use, drain the bourbon through a fine mesh strainer (maybe even once or twice and package or use!
