Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I for one am extremely excited! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and while I do love Christmas and the ‘season of giving’, how can you beat a holiday that is comprised of eating, drinking, watching football and then napping when all of those activities become too strenuous?! The answer is you can’t…
Here are 3 cocktail recipes that fit in perfectly with the activities of the holiday:
The Pumpkin Pie Martini: You all know the joke…and especially on Thanksgiving it’s completely acceptable to ‘have your cake (pie) and drink it too!’
- 1 part Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice
- ½ part Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
- ½ part Hiram Walker Butterscotch Schnapps
- ½ part Half & Half
Combine ingredients in shaker w/ ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into martini glass. Garnish and serve.
The CosmoWHIPolitan: If pumpkin isn’t really your thing, this sweet treat is the perfect drink to accompany a day of feasting.
- 1 part Hiram Walker Whipped Liqueur
- 1.5 parts Hiram Walker Triple Sec
- 1.5 parts Cranberry Juice
- .5 part fresh lime juice
Shake all ingredients in shaker and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
The Pumpkintini: If pumpkin is your thing, but you need to save more room for the actual dessert, this martini is a little less sweet than the Pumpkin Pie Martini…but still delicious!
- 1 part Absolut Vodka (Regular or Vanilia)
- 1 part Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice Liqueur
Shake and strain into a martini glass. Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon.
Enjoy and happy feasting/drinking/napping everyone 🙂
