Pumpkin Infused Vodka & White Russian
It’s thanksgiving time. A time to spend with friends and family. Eat and drink and be merry. Depending on your family, maybe drink more and merry less, especially in the current political climate. Here comes cousin Shelby from Boulder and up from Mobile, good ol’ Uncle Rhett. Each stands next to the kitchen table, and someone mentions politics and boom! A Hannity vs. Maddow brawl has erupted next to the cranberry sauce and green bean stuffing!
In order to quell tensions, out of nowhere, a creamy drink on ice slides across the table and the odor of nutmeg punches through their war of words. It’s the Colluding Comrade to the rescue! A roasted spiced pumpkin infused vodka married with a White Russian. Tensions and insults are drowned by the sweet and smooth cool concoction that surprisingly warms the throat, and is reminiscent of a pumpkin pie milkshake. Make the holidays great again! Please drink and politic responsibly.
If you like your drinks less sweet substitute the Starbucks VIA pack with 2 Tbsp instant coffee. We used what we had on hand. Feel free to replace condensed milk with evaporated milk to reduce sugar, or switch up heavy cream for half n half if you please. We went for absolute gluttony!
2 cups Pumpkin Infused Vodka (see pumpkin spiced vodka infusion blog)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp Instant coffee (we used what we had on hand Starbuck’s VIA instant white mocha)
11/2 cup Heavy Cream
Add pumpkin vodka infusion, condensed milk, and instant coffee to blender. Blend until fully mixed, then pour into clean mixing bowl. Whisk in heavy cream. Funnel your delicious Colluding Comrade into an airtight bottle. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Good for up to one month.
Serve over ice with a fresh dusting of nutmeg, or cinnamon stick.
Please drink responsibly.
