Sometimes, you can’t take one more commercial for pumpkin spice lattes; ads for Halloween costumes; or reminders that the holidays are coming. To combat this persistence and focus on all things SEASONAL, we need something extra special to help us forget. Betches, we give you the pumpkin cocktail.
This isn’t necessarily a cocktail to celebrate the fall season, but, rather, to help you forget it in the form of like 3 shots per drink. You’re welcome. We were also going to call this the Black Out Before Christmas, but, whatever.
· 1 ½ oz pumpkin puree NOT pumpkin pie filling
· 1 ½ oz vanilla vodka
· 2 oz apple cider
· 1 ½ oz Fireball Whiskey (ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
· 1 ½ oz spicy ginger ale
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine all the things EXCEPT the ginger ale. Strain into a glass and top with the ginger ale. Round it out with some ice. Drink until you forget about fall and sweaters and Halloween. You could also garnish with a cinnamon stick. Enjoy your blackout.
