Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We know we are a few days early, but we wanted our favorite readers to know how thankful we are that you stop by our little corner of the vast internet. We appreciate your comments, your shares with friends and your encouragement. We have much to be grateful for this year – our health, our three piglets, our friendships and our families.
One of our favorite things we like about The Blind Pig Blog is creating new drinks and recipes. We went back to the vault for this one. (Yes that is a reference to T. Swift.) We loved our Spiced Pumpkin Martini that we first shared with you years ago, but we decided to update the recipe a bit by adding a little Caffe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur. We think it is even better than the original.
The new cocktail has a hint of pumpkin entertwined with the flavor of real espresso – a delicious combination. Pumpkin pie spice sprinkled across the top accents the cocktail with a touch of autumn, and the chocolate syrup drizzled inside the glass makes the cocktail complete.
The Pumpkin Espresso Martini is a great drink to serve to guests after your Thanksgiving Feast or save it for guests who drop by while they are in town over the holidays.
