Here Comes Halloween and Pumpkin Flavored Vodka

With Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s about that time when you start seeing pumpkin flavored this and pie flavored that. Everything gets that fall enhancement that we all enjoy tasting from time to time. Now with Pinnacle’s new blend of vodka, alcohol is no different. Known for having unique flavors to offer like Whipped Cream and Blackberry, Pinnacle has added a new fall inspired flavor that will go perfect with several holiday cocktails. In the past, pumpkin flavored drinks were only acquired by adding pumpkin puree in the mix. Offered at an affordable price of about $12.99, you can grab a bottle to offer your holiday guests something unique that only seems to be fitting this time of year.

Drinking pumpkin vodka straight or as a shot would just be foolish. The flavors should be enjoyed in a cocktail or shot that you masterfully create or show your guests how to mix so that they can truly enjoy the holiday flavors. You can taste a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon in the deep blend of sweet pumpkin and it’s topped with a subtle flavor of whipped cream as well. It’s only offered as a limited seasonal blend but it is certain to pair perfectly with these recipes.

Here are a few ways to use a pumpkin vodka. When hosting a gathering for my friends, often times instead of manning the bar the entire night, I’ll instead prepare the alcohols I would like my guests to use and print out a drink list to leave nearby. My guests can opt to prepare the drinks I recommend or create something on their own. Oftentimes people just want a simple alcohol plus mixer combination while others will want to try something more festive. Preparation is key to a successful holiday drink event.
