    Sorry to hear that this recipe didn't work out for you. Did you use canned pumpkin puree? This recipe was created using homemade, which may have a higher moisture content. Try using 6 oz lemon juice and 3 oz water next time—that should make for a thinner soda.

    I made this drink and am perplexed by the lemon-pumpkin soda. Are the ratios correct? It is really too thick to be a soda and clogs the siphon. Thoughts?

    Hi Greg--
    Pyrat is a blend of aged rums from around the Caribbean; you could substitute your favorite dark rum. Unaged white rum won't stand up as well to the assertive flavor of the pumpkin.

    Is there another rum or style of rum that is recommended for this cocktail? Thanks!
