So back in July, the blog Creepy Cupcakes posted about this Pumpkin Pie Martini, complete with a link to the recipe. Well, copied off the recipe & decided to make some this month. Part of the fun is making your own pumpkin infused vodka. You know how if you go to the liquor store, there are so very many different 'flavored' vodkas now. Well according to a program about cocktails I saw on the TV, these are products of infusions. So what you are seeing above here is my first attempt to infuse a pumpkin with vodka. Will it be a success? I'll find out this weekend, when after two weeks, I'll be ready to strain off the vodka from the pumpkin & the spices.
And how about that jar!! I have no idea how old it is. I remember it sitting in my grandparents old canning cellar for years, until I final relieved them of it. It must have been made sometime in the mid to late 80's. If anyone knows anything more about this jar, please let me know.
