Thanksgiving will be here in a little over a week (hell yes!). Of course, serve your guests the go-to beers and wines but dust off your cocktail glasses and serve, perhaps, a sparkling pumpkin pie cocktail?
Sparkling Pumpkin Pie Cocktail
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 slice of lemon
- 1 ounce American Spoon Pumpkin Butter
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- 1 ounce gin
- Dry champagne or sparkling wine
- Blend of sugar and cinnamon for rim
Make a simple syrup by combining equal amounts of sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until sugar has dissolved. Cool completely before continuing. Simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Run a slice of lemon around the rim of a champagne flute. Dip in cinnamon sugar mixture to coat rim of glass.
In a blender, combine pumpkin butter, 1 oz. simple syrup, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
Transfer to a mixing glass or an empty jar. Add ice and gin and shake well. Strain into champagne flute and top with sparkling wine.
Chapman Cocktail, Applejack Rabbit, Island Breeze and French Toast Flip are also great options to choose from. Check them out here.
What Thanksgiving libation are you looking forward to serving?
