Want to skip the pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving but still want to be festive? Why not serve this Pumpkin Martini instead? Okay, still make the pie (after all it is Thanksgiving), but perhaps some of the adults would like the option to drink their dessert!
Pick up pumpkin pie spices in the bakery aisle of your grocery store and mix them with equal parts brown sugar on a plate. Rim the edge of the martini glass with the sweet-spice mixture and serve with a small cinnamon stick for even more holiday flavor.
2 ounces pumpkin infused vodka
Splash of Cointreau
Note: Your liquor store should carry pumpkin- flavored or infused vodka around this time of year.
1. Swirl Cointreau in a martini glass, then dump out.
2. Shake pumpkin vodka and ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour into glass.
Servings: 1 cocktail.
