"Friday Night Cocktail" is a blog feature that we have here once a week to highlight a new cocktail! Each week we'll share a new cocktail recipe and some of our brief thoughts about it!
In honor of November and the fall season, this week's Friday Night Cocktail is...
(from the recipe found HERE)
3 oz Snow Queen vodka
1.5 oz Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice Schnapps
Splash of simple syrup (using our easy method!)
Black sugar for the glass rim
- (Optional) Use colored sugar on the rim of your martini glass.
- Simple! Shake and serve!
Some thoughts on this recipe...
- The original recipe actually called for a 3-to-1 ratio, but we upped the pumpkin to 1.5 oz. This was still a VERY boozy cocktail. A different recipe (on the bottle) called for a 1-to-1 ratio. I would probably recommend at least a 2-to-1 ratio instead of the original.
- I, personally, like the sugar rim as it helped with the "booziness" of the drink. We also added a cinnamon stick which added a little spice to the drink--DEFINITELY recommended. :-)
Be sure to check back next week! We'll be making a S'mores martini or another pumpkin drink...
