Sparkling Pumpkin Cocktail




Yes, I know, I have a bunch of Pumpkin Cocktails already but I didn't have one that included bubbly. Plus I have a couple of bottles of Homemade Pumpkin Liqueur to play with again this year so, fizzy pumpkin cocktails here I come.

The
SPARKLING
PUMPKIN COCKTAIL
  
INGREDIENTS:
1 Oz Chilled Spiced Pumpkin Liqueur
2 Oz. Brut Champagne, Cava or Prosecco
  
Garnish: Pumpkin Pie Spice and Sugar, Toasted Marshmallow 

Glass: Champagne Flute
  
DIRECTIONS:
Chill your glass in the freezer, then pour in the spiced pumpkin liqueur and top off with the sparking wine of your choice. I prefer a brut Champagne, but the others are nice too and bring their own flavor profile to this cocktail. Stir gently, dust with a little of the pumpkin pie spice and sugar then add a toasted marshmallow.

Enjoy.

CRANBERRY A-GO-GO THANKSGIVING COCKTAIL



The fruit most associated with Thanksgiving and the holidays is probably cranberries and it's also the time of year where it's easy to get them fresh so it follows that it's also a great time of year for cranberry cocktails. Add a little Jack Daniels, some lemon and sugar and you're ready to (pardon me for this) a-go-go.

The
CRANBERRY A-GO-GO
COCKTAIL

1-1/2 Oz. Jack Daniels
1 Oz. Homemade Cranberry Liqueur

Tools: Muddler, Cocktail Shaker, Hawthorne Strainer

DIRECTIONS
Make your sugared cranberries and set aside.
