The Savvy Housekeeper has a bit of a headache this morning.
That’s because I couldn’t resist having one extra Pumpkin Pie Cocktail at my local bar last night. The bartender made the pumpkin liqueur himself, and it did indeed taste like pumpkin pie. The cellphone photo above does not do justice to how delicious this cocktail was.
I asked the bartender how he made the drink. Here’s an approximation of the recipe:
Pumpkin Pie Cocktail
.5 oz vodka
2 oz vanilla vodka
.5 oz pureed pumpkin
Muddle pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg until spices are dissolved. Shake over ice with vodka and vanilla vodka. Pour into a glass and fill with Dr. Pepper. Add whip cream to garnish.
If this cocktail was in a martini glass, it would look pretty enough to compete with some of my other Halloween cocktails. And unlike those, I can vouch for the deliciousness in this case.
