Pumpkin Patch Cocktails

Is there frost on your pumpkin..?

If so, what better way to warm up than with a tasty adult beverage?  Today’s focus is that symbol of all things fall… the pumpkin patch.

I have two recipes for you.  One recipe is tequila based and the other vodka.  Take your pick or better yet, try both..!

Pumpkin Patch Cocktail – Vodka
·         2 oz.       Irish cream liqueur
·         1.5 oz.   Vanilla vodka
·         1 oz.       Pumpkin spice syrup

Combine all ingredients in shaker.  Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass.

 Pumpkin Patch Cocktail – Tequila
·         2 oz.       Blanco (Silver) tequila
·         2 oz.       Orange juice – fresh squeezed
·         1 ½ oz.   Pumpkin puree
·         1/3 oz.   Maple syrup

Combine all ingredients in shaker.  Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass.
As always, the Connoisseur prefers you use good quality ingredients, to assure a proper cocktail experience.  You can even garnish these drinks with a variety of items:  grated nutmeg, cinnamon powder, cinnamon stick…  be creative!

Cheers..!
