Thirsty Thursday: The Accidental Pumpkin Cupcake.

Originally, this was supposed to be the “Pumpkin Pie”.  Because apparently, pumpkin beer + whipped cream vodka = striking & delicious similarity to a slice of pumpkin pie.  Thus spaketh a friend on the Almighty Facebook (amen).  I got excited, because at this time of year we ALWAYS have pumpkin beer in the house, and I had just picked up a handful of random flavored mini bottles at the store the other day (because I’m too cheap to buy a full bottle of anything), and I could have SWORN there was a whipped cream vodka in there.

There wasn’t.  But there WAS a Cupcake brand Vanilla Frosting flavored one.  Which, in my mind, seemed close enough.

Because people TOTALLY put frosting on their pumpkin pie…right?  Right? RIGHT???? 

Yeah… anyway.  The end result did NOT taste like pumpkin pie.  However, it DID taste like a pumpkin muffin with cream cheese icing which is still totally delicious in its own right.


1 bottle of your favorite pumpkin beer (we have two favorites in our household, but I’m saving the other one for next week’s Thirsty Thursday)

1 mini bottle Frosting flavored vodka (the Cupcake brand was really smooth)

Your favorite pint glass



Pour vodka into glass. Pour beer over top.  Sip languishingly while you watch your favorite team get demolished by the Giants. :( 

But hey—at least your drink won’t let you down!

  1. Sigh. I so envy American retail ... I'm pretty sure we have neither pumpkin beer or frosting flavoured vodka up here. Need to make a run for the border soon!!!!

    1. Really??? That's so surprising! It seems like microbrewing is as popular up there as it is down here (at least that was the impression I got when I was researching my upcoming Vancouver trip).
