Pumpkin Martini

Tequila Pumpkin Puree Coconut Cocktail Beverage  The weather is back to being cold and I have started thinking about Thanksgiving recipes.  We host a Thanksgiving Dinner Party every year and I wanted to come up with a great fun cocktail that we could serve.  I have been working on a healthy pumpkin bread recipe and there has been plenty of pumpkin puree on hand.  So cocktail + pumpkin puree = Pumpkin Martini.

I used coconut-almond milk which is what I have in the refrigerator (totally recommend it), but you could substitute with what ever milk you have on hand.  I added a sprinkle of red pepper over top and it really added a nice little zing.
