This bourbon cider is good hot or cold, and even better served in a pumpkin keg! If you'll be serving the cider immediately, add in the optional pumpkin puree, and use the largest amount of add ins. If you're letting sit in the fridge overnight, or serving hot, you can use the smaller amount and skip the pumpkin puree.
Cut a lid in the top of your pumpkin, and scrape out guts and seeds. Insert tap using keg kit.
Mix together the cider, ginger, oranges, and cinnamon sticks. Add the bourbon if using and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
If you need to serve immediately, mix in the pumpkin puree and add some ice, or have ice on hand to fill glasses.
Mix together the cider, ginger, oranges, and cinnamon sticks in a large pot. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
Let sit 5 minutes, then mix in the bourbon and pour into your pumpkin.
