This is a classic pumpkin soup but with a spicy flare with the addition of Louisiana Hot Sauce. But you can control the amount of spiciness or heat by adding more or less of the hot sauce. And this soup also contains a couple of tablespoons of bourbon which could be optional but it really adds a unique flavor that we love.
Creamy Pumpkin Soup Recipe:
- 1 medium chopped white onion (about 1 cup)
- a clove of minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp bourbon, optional
- 1/2 teaspoon Marjoram
- 2 cups of roasted pumpkin (or one 15 oz can of pumpkin puree)
- 1/2 teaspoon tabasco, more or less to taste

How to make roast pumpkin soup:
Add bourbon and bring to a boil and saute for a couple of minutes for the alcohol to cook off and leave the flavor. But be careful when cooking with alcohol, it will flame if in contact with an open flame.
Add a dash of salt and pepper to the soup, adjust for taste then simmer for 5-10 minutes.
