Tomorrow is national pie day and i'm kicking off the celebration today with a cocktail as an ode to a pie! I just love a fun reason to celebrate and whip up a new cocktail. I'm not only giving you a new cocktail but I'm going to leave a few links at the bottoms to pie recipes i've recently seen out there that are calling my name! Maybe they will inspire you to celebrate National Pie Day this Saturday!
The cocktail I'm sharing with you today is a Cranberry Ginger pie martini! And it's about as refreshing as pie cocktails come. In November I have a cocktail shake off between apple and pumpkin pie and both were delicious but they were a little more exuberant.
6 oz vodka
8 oz cranberry juice
splash of ginger beer
1 piece of ginger
lime for garnish
In a shaker muddle piece of ginger. Add vodka and cranberry juice and shake well. Strain into your glass and add a lime for garnish. Add a splash of ginger beer to taste!
Now let's get down to some more delicious pie recipe business. From cocktails to cookies, let's go!
That's all folks! I hope you have a delicious National Pie Day! I am heading towards New Orleans this weekend and have a long list of traditional cocktails that I need to try.... Let me know if you have any recommendations on where to go and what to see while I'm there!
