It’s Friday! I am back home in Florida for my friend’s wedding this weekend. It’s nice to see my family again. My little brother has been calling me a “ditcher” since we moved to Arizona. He also thinks I moved 5,000 miles away. In my birthday card that he gave me right before we moved, he wrote, “Happy Birthday, Sis. You’re a ditcher. See you in the year 2020.”
It’s okay. We are going to spend the whole day together today. I ain’t no ditcher!
In celebration of it being the weekend, I have created a yummy martini for you. Apple and pumpkin in one awesome drink! This drink is the perfect drink to serve your Thanksgiving dinner guests…or you could be like a certain someone and drink one and a half of them at 11:30 in the morning because you made them to photograph and you don’t want it to go to waste so you drink them and then end up with a raging headache for the rest of your day…
- 2 1/2 tbs. pumpkin puree
- 3 ounces apple cider (I used the Spiced Cider from Trader Joes)
- 2 ounces vanilla vodka
- 1 ounce ginger ale
- cinnamon and sugar (for the rim)
- In a shallow dish, mix together a couple of tablespoons of sugar and about 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Rub some apple cider along the rim of each martini glass. Dip the rim in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat.
- In a cocktail shaker, add about 3-4 ice cubes. Add in the pumpkin puree, apple cider, vodka, and ginger ale. Shake well and pour into the martini glasses and serve.
