Halloween Spirits
I hope that everyone had a safe and happy Halloween this weekend! We had a great time with family and the things that I saw neighbors do to keep things safe and fun for their little ones was amazing and wonderful to see. Just brings home the fact that we are very adaptive to change and while this year has not been the best that we've seen, we will do what we can do to adapt to our environments. So much is happening in our country currently that it sometimes feel overwhelming. But at the heart of things, friends and family and being a good citizen of the world is what is going to get us through this challenge that we are faced with.

With in that spirit, I wanted to share this great holiday cocktail which was a big hit for Halloween but would work just as well during the Thanksgiving holiday! We had the fire going and had a drink station set up for these and our guests really enjoyed them. Also, any opportunity to use our cutting board with 2 ramekin holders! It was the perfect set up to having everything in one place to rim the glasses and garnish the drinks. It was also pretty enough to have out on display!


For the Rim -
4 gingersnap cookies, crushed
1 tsp honey

For the Drink -
1 oz good quality vodka
1 oz Kahlua
1 oz pumpkin spice cream
1 oz heavy cream

Garnish -
cinnamon stick or straw
dash of pumpkin spice

1. Place crumbled cookies in a small ramekin. Place honey in another. Run the rims of the glasses in the honey and then dip in the cooke crumbs to coat.
2. Put ice into the rimmed glass. Add in the Kahlua and vodka.
3. Add the pumpkin creamer and heavy cream.
4. Sprinkle some pumpkin spice on top and serve with a straw or a cinnamon stick so that guests can stir up their drinks.

This could even be an after dinner drink as it is very dessert like although I found that once people started drinking these, it was hard to stop!
