Autumn Moonshine

Autumn Moonshine

I love to create cocktails that fit the season! This one hits all the marks of Fall with the flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, apple, orange and maple! Topping it off with a little beer just gives it some fizz with a casual flair!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte

You may remember from my post about how to make Pumpkin Puree from fresh pumpkins, that I had plenty of homemade pumpkin puree and would be making lots of pumpkin recipes!  So, I hope no one is tired of pumpkin recipes yet! I've heard that it's okay to share pumpkin recipes until Christmas day! Then after that everyone is done with pumpkin! Sort of like 'don't wear white after Labor Day'! Well, this is the first recipe I've tried so far and it was VERY good! So stay tuned for e few more pumpkin recipes on this blog in the coming weeks!

This Pumpkin Spice Latte is suppose to be a perfect copycat for the Starbuck's version. Since I've never had the Starbuck's version I can't compare! To me this tastes like drinking a pumpkin pie mixed in with your coffee...yum!

Rum Truffle Mocha Hot Drink (Skinny Style)

This really is the perfect hot drink for these VERY cold days we're having in New York! I made this last night and it was just what I needed...a warm, chocolaty, boozy, beverage to take the chill off!
This recipe is from a talented blogger named Anna
from the 'Crunchy Creamy Sweet' website.
 In her recipe, she explains how to easily make frothy milk with just a glass jar and a microwave...and some milk, of course!

Rum Truffle Mocha Hot Drink (Skinny Style)
Rum Truffle Mocha Hot Drink

4 Tbls. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbls. rum
1 1/2 cups hot freshly brewed coffee
4 packets artificial sweetener or regular sugar
1/2 cup skim milk or low fat milk
Finely chopped chocolate - for garnish, optional
In a glass measuring cup melt 4 tbls. chocolate chips in the microwave according to package directions. Then add in a splash of the hot brewed coffee and whisk until smooth. Whisk in more hot coffee if needed. Add the sweetener and whisk again. Pour into 2 mugs and add 1 tbls. of rum to each mug. Then add the remaining hot coffee.
Now make the hot frothy milk by pouring about 1/2 cup milk into a glass jar with a lid. Shake the jar vigorously to create foam. Remove lid and microwave on high for 20 seconds. Do this a few times until you see the foam float to the top. Spoon a little of this hot frothy milk on top of each hot mocha. Garnish the top of each with some finely chopped chocolate. Sip and Enjoy!
Make 2 Servings

Iced Chai Tea

Iced Chai TeaI love all things Chai! I've tried many Chai flavored teas and the brand that I think has the most flavor is Good Earth...I always buy the decaf version! I love the strong spices that this tea has. Many tea brands are weak and bland. But I never let those other brands go to waste! That's where my Iced Chai Tea idea came from!
