RECIPE: Halloween Or Thanksgiving Cocktail
The Bar at Clement in The Peninsula New York has whipped up this beautiful cocktail for Halloween or Thanksgiving. It’s called the “Drunken Pumpkin Pie”; but since there’s no pumpkin in the recipe, you may wish to give it another name. The flavor is creamy coffee with cinnamon accents—still spot on for the season.
(Mixologists take note: If the pie has no pumpkin, you can’t call it pumpkin pie.)
More intrigue: The only way to order the cocktail is to be “in the know.” It’s a seasonal special and not on the menu. So here’s the recipe to enjoy at home, in a Martini glass or as shots:
