Caramel Nut Pumpkintini

Guest post from Snappy Gourmet

I can't seem to get enough pumpkin this fall!  I'll probably be in pumpkin overload by Thanksgiving, but in the meantime, I'm enjoying all sorts of pumpkin inspired dishes.  To compliment all my pumpkin dishes this fall, I thought a pumpkin flavored cocktail was in order.  I love creating fun and quirky cocktails and this Caramel Nut Pumpkintini is no exception.  It's like a dessert in a glass that will surely impress your friends.  These Caramel Nut Pumpkintinis are easy to make and can easily be multiplied to make more than 1 drink.  You could also serve these Pumpkintinis out of small glasses or shot glasses for a small treat.  Hope you enjoy!

Caramel Nut Pumpkintini
4 tablespoons pumpkin spice liqueur (such as Hiram Walker)

Whipped cream
Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1.  Place all ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake for about 10 seconds, then strain into martini glass.
