Drunken Pumpkin

This is a frothy, creamy cocktail which is best served in a martini glass to preserve its texture. Makes 1-2 servings (depending on how saucy you’re feeling).

  • 2 oz. pumpkin pie vodka
  • 3 oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 oz. maple syrup
  • 1 heaping spoonful of canned pumpkin
  • several dashes of pumpkin pie spice

Pulse everything together in a blender just until smooth and serve immediately.
