Pie drinks for Thanksgiving

I concluded Fighting alcoholism on one of the biggest bar nights of the year with a mixed message.
The Tipsy Bartender has some killer drinks for the holiday.  Stay tuned.
That's not exactly the most consistent topic to raise at the end of a health post warning about excessive drinking, but I'm not the most consistent person, which is why I named my blog after Crazy Eddie.  The character was a techno-optimist and a believer in hopeless causes at the same time.  I also can't be all DOOM all the time.

That written, it's time for drinks and dessert after the Thanksgiving feast.  The Tipsy Bartender shows how to have them both at the same time.

First up, Apple Pie A La Mode Cocktail.

If you like apple pie you have to try...THE APPLE PIE A LA MODE COCKTAIL. It's a drink the really taste like apple pie. It features oddka apple pie vodka, fireball whisky, vanilla vodka and angry orchard apple cider. It's perfect!
1 oz. (30ml) Oddka Apple Pie Vodka
1 oz. (30ml) Fireball Whisky
1/2 oz. (15ml) Vanilla Vodka
Angry Orchard Apple Cider
Whipped Cream
Next, How to make a Pumpkin Pie Cocktail.

Put a slice of pumpkin pie in the blender and add some booze to create....THE PUMPKIN PIE COCKTAIL. This is the ultimate Thanksgiving drink!
1 1/2 oz. (45ml) Baileys Irish Cream
1 oz. (30ml) Vodka
3 oz. (90ml) Milk
Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Whipped Cream
This one literally is both dessert and drink in one, as it includes pumpkin pie as part of the recipe.

Follow over the jump for two more dessert drink recipes.

Now, a bonus from last year, How to make the Pumpkin Pie Milkshake.

If you love spiked shakes you have to try...THE PUMPKIN PIE MILKSHAKE! This is the ultimate decadent autumn cocktail. Ice cream, milk, half and half, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, graham cracker crumbs, and bourbon whisky are blended together for the creamiest, sweetest, spiciest, and strongest fall dessert you'll ever have!
1 1/2oz (45ml) Bourbon Whiskey
Vanilla Ice Cream
1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Half & Half
2 drops Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/3 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
Finally, here's a variant of a dessert drink, How to make a Nutella Pumpkin Martini.

The martini is rimmed with pumpkin loaf and nutella. The kicker is it also has nutella mixed into the actual martini making is incredibly unique and delicious...THE NUTELLA PUMPKIN MARTINI.
1oz. (30ml) Vanilla Vodka
1oz. (30ml) Amaretto
1oz. (30ml) Baileys Irish Cream
1oz. (30ml) Half and Half
Pumpkin Loaf
And that's it for this year so far.  Tipsy Bartender has more from previous years, but I'll save them for later.  I have to rejoin the family.

One last time, Happy Thanksgiving!
