The fall has finally come to Texas! Time to get out the sweaters and the Pumpkin Spice.
Everything about pumpkins feels like fall doesn’t it? They make the perfect fall décor both carved, painted, or plain. And they are delicious – toasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin bread, pumpkin butter, and pumpkin pie!
Between soccer practice, gymnastics practice and a Fall Festival every weekend, it’s hard to find the time to bake. So instead, I plan to enjoy the pumpkin spice with a warm and relaxing mug of Pumpkin Spice Bailey’s and Coffee or a Pumpkin Pie Martini (on the October evenings that are in the 70s).
Making the coffee is super easy – just pour yourself a half a cup of your favorite coffee (better to stay away from flavored coffee though) and then fill the cup up the rest of the way with Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice. If you want to get fancy you can even make some Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice whip cream for the top!
For the warmer evenings, I will be springing for the Pumpkin Pie Martini - another easy drink to make and oh, so, delicious. Mix 1.5 oz of Smirnoff or Burnett’s Whipped Cream Vodka, 1 oz of Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur and a half oz of Rum Chata. Shake and serve. For a little fancy sparkle – rim your glass with cinnamon sugar and sprinkle a little on top.
So let’s raise a glass to this cooler weather and sip a little Pumpkin Spice. October is busy enough – relax a little and save the Pumpkin baking until November. Let’s bring on the fall!
