A Thanksgiving Libation

I'll take my pumpkin pie in liquid form, thanks. This seasonal inspired cocktail was actually concocted by a friend of mine, we drank them up in Portsmouth, NH hanging out in our hotel room before hitting the town. Hence the plastic cups. It's the type of cocktail where one is all you need, at most two, similar to a slice of pumpkin pie. It's definitely sweet, but not too sweet, the rum tempers the rest, so be generous with that.


Pumpkin Pie Cocktail
-2 parts Captain Morgan's (or your favorite) spiced rum
-1 part Pumpkin Spice liqueur
-3 parts Apple Cider
Combine in a plastic cup with ice (or a martini shaker and strain straight up or on the rocks)
Garnish with whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice (or a cinnamon, nutmeg & clove blend)
I love this time of year!


Hope you're all enjoy the holiday with good food, drink, family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!
