Drunken Pumpkins

It’s that pumpkin worshiping time of the year! Just in time for Halloween parades and parties, I’m showing you how to make five drinks with a bottle of pumpkin pie vodka.

I’m no mixologist, but I do know a good drink when I sip one. I’ve put these drinks together with all beverage drinkers in mind. Bourbon, rum, vodka, and of course, chai…you’re bound to enjoy at least one of these drunken pumpkins.

As always, these amounts and ingredients are what I found to be delicious. If you’re feeling bold, go ahead and add an extra shot! If you prefer cream soda with a splash of vodka, go for it! Whichever you choose, grab a drink and celebrate the Fall with these pumpkin beverages.

Pumpkin & Cream

3/4 cup milk (or dairy substitute)

In a shaker, combine the vodka, horchata and milk. Garnish with whipped cream, ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick. On a cold Fall night, add the mixture to a warm cup of pumpkin spice coffee and top with whipped cream (of course).

Create the chai flavor by combining all the ground spices. In a shaker, combine the two vodkas, amaretto and milk. Add chai mixture to the shaker and shake well. Garnish with ground nutmeg. To take the chill off, warm the shaken ingredients on the stove, constantly stirring until hot.
