I was chatting with a friend last night and surprise, surprise the topic of alcohol came up!  Whaaaaattt??  She told me that Pinnacle has a Habanera flavored vodka (looks like a trip to the store is in order), then we talked about the Cinnamon Roll flavor they had and I got the cocktail making bug.  I opened up my bar (you've seen that post) today and peeked inside.  There it was, my Pumpkin Pie vodka!  Oh, we've had some good times together...so I decided that it was time to make a cocktail using it.

I decided to log onto Pinnacles site today to see if they had any new cocktails with that flavor since last time I checked.......cha-ching, they sure did!  I saw this one and crossed my fingers as I ran to the fridge in hopes that my 16 year old did not drink all of the eggnog.  He didn't!  

This cocktail created by the good people at Pinnacle is SO simple and SO delicious!  I mean, it's got to be one of the easiest cocktails to make.  Plus it's the perfect Fall/Winter combo cocktail.  You have your pumpkin pie and your eggnog, WINNER!

Here is Pinnacle's Pumpkin Nog, with a couple tiny changes:

  • 1 1/2 ounces Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie vodka
  • 3 ounces Eggnog
  • Pumpkin Pie spice
  • 1/2 graham cracker
Wrap up the graham cracker in a paper towel and crush it until it turns into a bunch of crumbs.  Wet and rim your glass with water and roll it in your graham cracker crumbs.  In a shaker, add vodka and eggnog.  Shake and strain into your rimmed glass.  Garnish with pumpkin pie spice and enjoy!!

I have a feeling that this week might get a bit crazy, so I'm awfully glad that I am starting it out with one of these delicious cocktails!

Cheers!!

  3. Hi there - I just saw some eggnog at my grocery store and I said to myself "Nahhhhh it's too soon gotta wait until after Thanksgiving." Now I have this delicious sounding cocktail to make with my eggnog when I do buy it! Thanks for sharing at Happiness is Homemade!

    1. Ha ha, I thought the exact same thing when I first saw it! It's like the decorations in the store, "Let's let one holiday finish before we start putting stuff out for the next". =)
