Yes I'm aware it's not quite noon yet. Don't judge me. Today's cocktail is definitely in order, I assure you. Why you ask? Well the fever bug has been and still is running through our house. I was up in the middle of the night with our latest fever reliever last night and today....well.....I just need a cocktail.

Things have been good, crazy, busy, fun, and non-stop here for the past week few weeks. Somehow it became October without anyone asking me if it was OK. Well, I must say it is OK. Now it is that time of the year for pumpkin flavored cocktails. I found this Pumpkin Mudslide from Spryte's Place. Apparently her sister introduced this cocktail to her a couple years ago and when I found it I knew I had to give it a try. Glad I did! Please thank you sister Spryte!

This cocktail is quite good. Their recipe calls for equal amounts of each ingredient and a splash of milk (or however much you would like). I decided on an amount and added it to it, but I think you could even skip the milk to taste the liqueurs even more. I will be remembering this cocktail and will whip up a batch of it at an upcoming get together for sure.

Here is the recipe for a Pumpkin Mudslide:

  • 1 ounce vanilla vodka
  • 1 ounce coffee liqueur
  • 1 ounce pumpkin pie liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce milk

In a cocktail shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake and dump everything into a short cocktail glass.

Here is to the first of (hopefully) many holiday/seasonal cocktails on the way!
