Spiced Pumpkin Martini ? ??
The mixologist in me flared on a cold, windy autumn evening last fall. The warmth of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom spices just seem to sink deep into my tired body at the end of a long, chilly day and warm it to the bone. As I recall, we sipped this lovely drink while handing out Halloween candy to all the spooky children last October 31st!
Enjoy and as always, please drink responsibly and with passion!
