With the Thanksgiving weekend now behind us and Halloween quickly approaching, it's time to really shift our focus to drinks that ones people can enjoy at holiday parties that aren't infused with alcohol.
Something I have quickly found during my pregnancy is that my options for fun, festive drinks are really limited now that I cannot indulge in the occasional glass of wine or cocktail. However, this doesn't mean that I have to be the oddball sitting out at parties, rocking non-alcoholic wine (ahem... glorified grape juice), water or soft drinks. 'Nor do you, designated drivers, non-drinkers, and fellow mommas to be!
I have spent time in the kitchen over the last few days perfecting the most perfect, delectable mocktini that would be great to serve up at that upcoming Halloween party. It's sweet, creamy and very reminiscent of a pumpkin pie, only liquid. Who doesn't love a dessert that can be served in a glass?!?
1oz Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup
1 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 ounces of milk
1.5 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Handful of ice
Add all ingredients to a shaker. Shake well.
Strain into martini glass.
If a martini is more your jam, you can infuse this Pumpkin Pie Martini with 1 ounce of dark or spiced rum.
