The Pumpkin Peony: A Smooth And Spicy Toast to Thanksgiving
In this day and age of specialty drinks, we credit Three Meadows Spirits' Peony Vodka, infused with peonies from Sugar Maple Farms in Millerton, New York, for concocting a Thanksgiving cocktail that includes pumpkin puree along with the spirits and spices. It's an original and seasonally perfect alternative to eggnog and mulled wine.
1.5 oz Peony Vodka
1/8 tsp pumpkin spice or Jamaican allspice
1.5 oz unsweetened half & half (or non-dairy creamer for those who don't do dairy)
1.5 tbsp pumpkin puree (we used organic canned pumpkin, but fresh works just as well)
1 tsp maple syrup (if your guests prefer a sweeter drink, add more maple syrup to taste)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add vodka, half and half, pumpkin puree, spices and maple syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into a glass. Add a sprinkle of pumpkin spice or ground nutmeg to garnish.
