Happy Hour in the High Peaks' variation on Trapper's Pumpkin Martini, you'll be a hit at Thanksgiving if you serve these, even if you burn the bird or forget to remove the gizzard. Ever since Pam picked up a can of pumpkin, she's been whining, "I want a Pumpkin Martini". Just to keep her quiet, I arrived bearing cinnamon, nutmeg and heavy cream. Break out your Magic Bullet or blender and prepare to make several servings.
3 oz whipped cream vodka
1 oz Sapling Maple Liqueur or maple syrup (real please)
1/2 c whipped cream (homemade or commercial)
2 tb canned pumpkin or homemade puree
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch of nutmeg
Lightly whip heavy cream and sugar in a blender and set aside some for topping. Add ingredients above, ice cubes to taste, and mix in blender. Top drink with tsp of whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Pammie still wants to create, so it's back to work for us. Next up: Hide & Seek
Cheers & Bottoms Up!
Kim & Pam
