Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

It's official, the holidays are here. Although this time of year is supposed to be a big celebration with family and friends, it's usually pretty stressful. We could all use a cocktail to celebrate the season or rather, pick our spirits up after a long family filled day(as much as you might love them...). Here's a recipe I concocted while playing with my parents' booze collection...Good luck to you all this holiday season and Happy Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Spice Cocktail
2 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz orange juice
1 oz pumpkin puree 
1/2 oz honey water (equal parts honey and water)
a pinch of pumpkin pie spice (or a mixture of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove)
For Garnish:
Whipped Cream
Cranberries or cinnamon stick

Throw all the ingredients into a martini shaker with a handful of ice. Shake until the shaker is too cold to hold onto then pour into a glass of your choice. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a cranberry or cinnamon stick. 


  1. Sounds DELISH!!! Can we also concoct a drink for New Years?? Get on that.

  2. Yes! Are you officially going to be in SF? Jarrod will be staying with me too so we shall all unite!
