Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. You’ve got the turkey ready to go, right? The sides started? A pie already made?
Then it’s time to reward yourself for your labor. Here, a drink crafted for us by Denise Tempest of Tempest Lounge. Enjoy.
The Tempest Pumpkin Pie Cocktail
1 ounce Crown Royal
1 ounce half and half
Pumpkin syrup, to taste
1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
1 tablespoon raw sugar (or substitute granulated)
Nutmeg, a dash
Cinnamon stick garnish
Combine crushed graham crackers and raw sugar in a shallow bowl. Wet the rim of a cocktail glass and dip into graham cracker mixture. Set aside. Shake the crown royal over ice with half-and-half and pumpkin syrup. Strain into cocktail glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
