I have so much to be thankful for. If you think about it, we all have something to be thankful for. A few things on my list this year include; my husband, my parents, my kids, my grandchild, extended family, coffee, chocolate, my pets (yes, pets come after chocolate and coffee because I need the chocolate and coffee to deal with them), food, my work, adult beverages...you see, the list just goes on.
One thing I am really thankful for is modern technology. I get to Facetime with Gman and his people a couple times a week, I get daily pictures of that little guy, and text messages from all my kids. I don't know how my mom dealt with not hearing from me weekly when I moved from Kansas to Alaska (I might not have been the best about calling home).
Well, on Sunday, my Cali DIL texted me this:
So, Cali DIL, this is a little different than what I sent you, if you haven't got your ingredients yet, get the chocolate whipped cream vodka for the win!
Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Martini
1 Tbsp.Brown Sugar Substitute
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice* to rim glasses
2 oz. chocolate whipped cream vodka
1.5 oz. spiced rum
2 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp. heavy cream
1 Tbsp. confectioners Swerve
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice*
Mix the brown sugar substitute and pumpkin pie spice together on a small plate. Lightly wet the edge of a martini glass and dip in sugar/spice mixture.
In shaker full of ice, add the other ingredients, shake until very cold. Carefully pour into two glasses. Top with a little sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
*if you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own with 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg.
