Pumpkin Cocktail

Now that October is upon us, one of my favorite flavors is food or drinks made with pumpkin. If you look around, there's pies, pancakes, breads, ales but one drink I invented two years ago that you absolutely must try is the Pumpkin Cocktail. It's perfect for this season and doesn't seem as though you're drinking alcohol but more like dessert. It's based off the Brandy Alexander but takes a different twist because I added Pumpkin spice liqueur and orange Curacao. It's a drink I want to celebrate with because it my birthday this month, it's also great to serve throughout the fall and winter with friends and family, give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

God bless and cheers,

John Apodaca
