I believe it's pumpkin spice liquer and vanilla vodka, but not sure how they made it. All I know is I could have drank them all night long.

Looking forward to seasonal variety packs and some great bock brews. Tried Yuengling's new Octoberfest beer on tap recently and found it good.
Happy birthday!

Hi lushes! I don't mind admitting it here, but this is my kind of group! I can't read all the previous postings so if I'm repeating anything, forgive me. Here's a small tip for making a super appletini. Use vanilla Gray Goose and add a little margarita mix. YUM.

A colleague just gave me a recipe for making a drink that tastes like a chocolate-covered pretzel. 1 part Pinnacle Chocolate Whipped Cream Vodka and 2 parts Frangelico. Lick a little salt from your hand, take a gulp and fall in love!

Awesome! Was looking for something to do with a bunch of Whipped cream vodka I have!
A fall favorite for me is warmed apple cider, spiced rum and a cinnamon stick as a stirrer. Yummo!

I bought some huge martini olives at the store today. Can't wait to fix a dirty martini now!

DH and I wandered into Total Wine and More in hopes of scoring free samples. We drank some nice wines from the Piedmont region of Italy.

They were divine. Then we sampled Red Wine with Chocolate and it was sooo yummy.


But what pushed us over the edge was the sample of Caramel Apple Martini. We got the recipe and the 3 bottles that make it up plus nice coupons.

We will be mixing up some Caramel Apple Martinis later!!!

Pretty fitting for a family who's last name is Martini , huh?

LOL!

Cin Cin!

Won a bottle of Sambuca at a local raffle and discovered it mixes well with bourbon.
