Mommy mixologist: Thanksgiving dessert feast in a glass

Posted 2:02pm on Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010

Bring the sweet smells and flavors of Thanksgiving dinner into your bar with this bountiful bunch of cocktails.

For my first original recipe, I tackled one of my favorite holiday desserts. I have to say that this is as good as any concoction I've had from pro bartenders, and if you're a fan of this sweet treat, you will love this drink.

Pumpkin pie martini

2 ounces Captain Morgan Spiced Rum

2 tablespoons pumpkin pie filling

1 scoop vanilla ice cream

1/4 cup crushed ice

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Prairie baked apple martini

No oven needed for this perfectly crisp cocktail.

1 ounce Prairie Organic Vodka

2 ounces spiced apple cider

1/2 ounce Phillips Apple Brandy

1/2 ounce cream

2 spoons brown sugar

Shake well with ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with cinnamon stick and brown sugar around rim of glass.

Cranberi martini

Forget the canned version of this festive fruit and serve it to your guests in a chilled glass.

3 ounces Stoli Cranberi Vodka

1 ounce raspberry liqueur

2 ounces pomegranate juice

1 ounce fresh lime juice

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with frozen cranberries.
