Smashing Pumpkins

Sidewalk display in NYC

I am not one for frothy drinks unless it is due to the whipped cream on my hot chocolate. So here are 2 versions of a great Halloween potion or a fine fall cocktail:

This first one is so easy, I have renamed it:
The Easy Jack O' Tini
1 or 3 Candy Corn Pieces
2 oz chilled vodka
1/4 oz Bols Pumpkin Smash Liqueur (or other pumpkin liqueur is fine too - whatever you can find as it is not so easy to locate)
Place a single candy corn (or 3) at the bottom of chilled cocktail glass. 
Combine vodka and liqueur a shaker with ice, shake well and strain into the glass.
Note the added treat when you get to the bottom of the glass - vodka infused candy corn. 
The end!

This next one is a variation of the traditional Margarita:
Pumpkin Margarita
2 oz Tequila
1 1/2 oz Bols Pumpkin Smash 
1/2 oz Triple Sec
2 cups ice
Blend all together until smooth, pour into a 16 ounce (pint) glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Option - serve in a traditional margarita glass, use the cinnamon stick as garnish and throw a dash of nutmeg on top

Drink recipes adapted  from Drink of the Week, which also has other pumpkin options for ya if you look for them!
Of course you could always just spike your pumpkin latte.
