Most of the drinks at Top Chef contestant Mike Isabella's Italian-inspired spot in Washington, D.C., are named after bands or songs. The Billy Corgan-fronted '90s group gets a mention in this autumnally appropriate seasonal cocktail: The depth of pumpkin and allspice flavor is tempered with a spritzy lemon soda.
12 ounces pumpkin purée
4 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 ounces water
1½ ounces dark rum
½ ounce St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
Bay leaf, for garnish
1. In a soda charger combine the pumpkin puree, lemon juice and water and charge. Serve to order.
2. In a Collins glass add the ice. Add the rum, Dram and 3 ounces of the lemon-pumpkin soda and stir to combine. Garnish with the bay leaf. Serve.
