I know I already told you all that pumpkins aren’t just made for pies anymore. Well this continues to remain true as I have stumbled on a cocktail that I think would be a delicious addition to…Thanksgiving dinner. Ladies and gentlemen I would like to introduce to you the pumpkin pie cocktail. I think it may be worth a shot. Its probably a little less filling than eating a real piece of pumpkin pie so that’s a win. And maybe even less calories which would be a double win.
Pumpkin Pie Martini (aka: Pumpkin Pietini)
-Generous Amount of Vanilla Vodka
-1 Spoonful of Pumpkin Puree
-2 Splashes of Hazelnut Liqueur
-2 Splashes of Milk
-1 Splash of Simple Syrup
-Garnish with a Dash of Cinnamon
-Notes: I am intrigued at the thought of trying this. I don’t usually love dessert in a glass (although a spiked milkshake sounds delightful) but I’m really into trying this one. It seems like it would be heavy so perhaps only one would do the trick. The best part? You can use the leftover Hazelnut Liqueur for yummy coffee drinks after the holidays.
