Oh. My. Word.
Here in the south, when we’re fond of someone, we call them “pumpkin”. Well, I truly see why now after trying this drink. “Pumpkin” has a whole new meaning to me. For real.
I was FINALLY able to get my hands on a bottle of Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka recently. Here in my neck of the woods I haven’t been able to find it anywhere. Luckily, I have an awesome friend who has some connections and scored getting a case ordered at one of my local ABC stores. Thanks Amanda!
Oh, by the way…I didn’t buy the whole case.
This is a cocktail that is definitely being served at Thanksgiving dinner, without a doubt! I can’t take much credit for it though. I saw the recipe on Pinnacle’s Facebook page and knew I had to try it. I just changed it up just a tad, not much at all. Thanks Pinnacle for the awesome recipe!
Aside from a nutmeg and sugar mixture for the rim and topping, here are your ingredients for my new favorite fall cocktail: Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka, Irish cream liqueur, half & half and whipped topping. You’ll also need a shaker.
Another shout out to Amanda for the hook-up…cheers to Thirsty Thursday!
