I’m not much of a mixologist, but I was inspired to tend bar after seeing Erin’s recipe for pumpkin spice latte martinis – what a great idea, I didn’t even know pumpkin liqueur existed! When POM Wonderful recently offered to send samples of their new iced coffees, I immediately thought about Erin’s creation and knew I wanted to try their iced coffee in a pumpkin martini of my own! We received samples of Café au Lait and Chocolate flavors, and the Chocolate flavor was ok, but the Café au Lait was delicious. I mixed the iced coffee with pumpkin liqueur, vodka, and butterscotch schnapps this weekend and was pleasantly surprised about well the drinks turned out! They were so yummy, in fact, that I couldn’t stop at just one… Thanks to Erin for the inspiration and to POM Wonderful for the Café au Lait Iced Coffee!
