Having strained the pumpkin out with a normal strainer & discarded all the solids, we strained the flavoured spirit through four layers of muslin into a large mixing bowl where I added the mulled syrup, also strained through the muslin (see earlier post for syrup recipe) in order to turn it from rather tasty but eye-watering firewater into an enjoyable little sipping tipple.

|The dregs - delicious but deadly!|
|Filling the bottles|
Though the resulting liqueur is still the rather uninspiring colour of weak orange cordial, it really is delicious!
