3.5 shots out of 5
I get to go on a date night with my husband tonight!!!! These occurrences are RARE, so I get totally excited when they actually happen!! We'll be celebrating our anniversary a day late, but at least we get to celebrate it!
I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5. This cocktail I whipped up myself, I figured that orange and cranberry would go good with the pumpkin flavor in the vodka. This is not a super sweet, super flavorful cocktail. This is a nice subtle cocktail where you can sit back and enjoy it's cold refreshingness (I love it when I type my own versions of words like "refreshingness" and it immediately gets a red squiggly line underneath it......like "Hey, that's not a real word!". If you know me you know I speak Jen-eese where I make up my own words at times) and also taste the hints of all of the ingredients mixed with in it. This is a safe cocktail, in which I mean it doesn't have that face squinching alcohol taste, it isn't super sweet where you are kind of dreading the next sip, it's just a nice cocktail.
Here is my recipe for a Thanksgiving Cocktail:
- 1 1/2 oz Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka
- 2 oz cranberry cocktail juice
- 2 oz orange juice
- 1/8 oz grenadine
In a tall cocktail glass filled with ice, pour in all of your ingredients. Stir your cocktail up well and enjoy.

Here's to Pinnacle's Pumpkin Pie Vodka! I even tasted the vodka on it's own before I made tonight's cocktail and I must say, it tastes good! I can taste the pumpkin pie flavor in the vodka for sure.
