Pumpkin Spice Martini

After spending an entire school year telling each other, "Hey, we should really do something fun while the kids are in school one of these days." A good friend of mine and I decided pick a day every single month designated as our "date day" and we would just head out in the morning and do something fun.  This past months excursion led us to the most amazing store, have you heard of the Savory Spice Shop?  The one we went to was in Franklin, TN and it is my new favorite store.  Let me also add that I am not an affiliate or have in anyway been compensated for this post.  I'm just a super happy customer.  I sniffed and tasted so many amazing spices (because that's what you do there - you can taste it all) and left with three great additions to my spice cabinet, including this Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar. In this recipe, I used it to rim the glass of this great fall cocktail.  It really went well with this Pumpkin Spice Martini and I plan on serving these up to my family next Thursday at our Thanksgiving feast.  If you are looking for a great Thanksgiving cocktail, I highly recommend this.  If you are looking for a great fall cocktail I highly recommend this. If you are looking for a great cocktail I highly recommend this.  It's Wednesday - I highly recommend this!!!
