Booze Filled Beverages for Fall

Unless you're a new blog visitor you already know how in love I am with fall now that I'm living in a city that actually has seasons. It's cold outside and toasty indoors so I've been craving delicious food and beverages to go along with this cozy atmosphere. First up is a Pumpkin Martini. I initially tried out the recipe I found on eHow, but that version was a tad to heavy on the vodka for my liking. I tweaked the recipe just a bit to focus on the tastier ingredients and ended up with what I think tastes like a spiked pumpkin spiced latte. Here's what you need: Pumpkin Spiced MartiniShake the following in a cocktail shaker with ice to make two chilled servings:
1 oz Cream Liqueur
2 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 oz Pumpkin Liqueur
1 oz Milk

Garnish your drink with bit of whipped cream, a sprinkle of pumpkin spice, and a cinnamon stick! If you have trouble finding the pumpkin spice liqueur you can also use a pumpkin syrup (like Torani).

Olive can never resist being the center of attention at a photo shoot. See what I mean.
Next up we have an even easier treat for grown ups. The Trader Joe's Apple Cider is a delicious place to start. Simmer it over a low heat with 3 cinnamon sticks, a whole nutmeg and a handful of cloves. Heating it slow will allow the spices to open up and give it an even more full, fall flavor. Add a shot of brandy for the adults and you have a wonderful fall beverage that will keep you warm on the inside and leave your house smelling amazing.

Molly's warm spiced ciders are the best. We'll be missing them this holiday season. Come visit us back in SF soon!
