Here’s to a Happy (and Buzzed) Thanksgiving
One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving season is the overabundance of pumpkins — I’m not just talking about the kind you pick at the local farm! From pumpkin coffee to pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin pie to pumpkin scented candles — pumpkin is everywhere! While you may not enjoy the oh-so-cozy family time that the holiday season brings along, I think that anyone over the age of 21 can appreciate a good drink…especially, when in the company of two-year-old screaming cousins and grandma’s infamous apple (or so she thinks!) pie.
And, so folks, I introduce to you my favorite of all things pumpkin…the pumpkin martini. The perfect way to feel no pain while remaining in the holiday spirit!
½ oz. Sylk Cream Liqueur
2 oz. Vodka (Vanilla optional)
½ oz Pumpkin Liqueur or Pumpkin Spice Syrup
• Pour the Sylk Liqueur and vodka into a shaker filled with ice.
• Shake well.
• Add the pumpkin liqueur or syrup.
• Shake again.
• Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
• Top with a teaspoon of whipped cream.
• Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
