Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I know you’re all excited about mom’s turkey, stuffing, cranberries and whatever else you family cooks up for the biggest eating holiday of the year. Well how about you surprise mom and instead of bringing a store bought pie, why don’t you bring a dessert you can all drink together. What’s that saying? A family that drinks together, stays together? Well that’s what we think anyhow.
We’re Team Cocktail, and I can’t even begin to tell you how many times we have chosen to drink our dessert instead of making or ordering it. So, if you’re looking for some tasty recipes that still have that pumpkin or apple pie taste, these are for you!
Tasty and fun these drinks are sure to be a hit with everyone from mom to Aunt Edna to cousin John. We hope you enjoy and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Rim the martini glasses with pumpkin pie spice and sugar mixture, then chill. Put remaining ingredients into a blender with ice and blend until frothy. Pour into chilled glasses, top with hipped cream and sprinkle a generous helping of spices on top! Cheers!
