Pumpkin pie gets a delicious twist in these Boozy Pumpkin Pie Shooters recipe. These pumpkin shooters are easy to make and perfect for fall. Try these boozy drinks at your next Halloween or Thanksgiving party!
Call me a pumpkin elitist. Call me a holiday renegade. I don’t care. I love my pumpkin and my pumpkin only.
So any time I create a pumpkin recipe, I go for things that just scream HELLO I AM PUMPKIN.
And in the case of these shooters, I couldn’t help but put in some vodka. There’s something so decadent about pumpkin + booze.
What Type Of Vodka Is Best For These Pumpkin Pie Shooters?
Now, vodka isn’t my number one liquor choice. I find it has a strong bite to it that doesn’t sit well with me. So I’m picky about my vodka. I want something that tastes clean and goes down easy.
From working in the restaurant industry, I’ve gotten to taste countless vodkas, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka has been my top choice for years. I love how unpretentious Tito’s is, and how freaking good their product is. Having that low key attitude with a product that shines is the quickest way to get to my heart.
And it’s a perfect choice when you want that pumpkin to shine like the star it is.
To get the complete pumpkin pie experience, I called on my friend eggnog to spice things up. It provides the exact creamy, spiced, and custard-y flavor I needed to make this a true Pumpkin Pie Shooter.
And can we talk about how you get dessert and a little nightcap all in one? Now that’s my kind of party!
In a cocktail shaker with ice cubes, combine eggnog, vodka, pumpkin puree, and cinnamon. Strain into 6 shooter glasses.
To make the meringue, whisk egg whites and sugar using an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Place into a piping bag fitted with a medium star tip and pipe over the top of the shooters. Use a torch to lightly caramelize the meringue. Serve immediately.
