“Pumpkin Pie Coffee Martini & Other Delicious Seasonal Coffee Things”

My favorite season is fall. The leaves start to turn, the weather starts to cool down, and my two favorite holidays are coming up, both Halloween and Thanksgiving. One thing that always helps me get into the fall spirit are flavored coffees. Fall is the only season I will drink a flavored coffee too, most days its just strong and black, but there is something about the cool crisp air that makes me crave a delicious Spiced Latte, or Pumpkin Spice Mocha. Sometimes it can be pretty hard to make one of these on the go, and this is where Coffee-Mate comes to the rescue. The standard in creamer, and flavored creamer in my household for years, these delicious creamers turn any regular cup of coffee into a delicious masterpiece worthy of handing out at any upscale, too cool, hipster coffee shop.

Our family really loves spending time visiting all the different fall festivals our town has to offer. It has been a family tradition to get our pumpkins from a pumpkin patch, and it’s such a great time hunting through all the different pumpkins to find the perfect one. All the while my wife and I are sipping on our coffees, and none more appropriate this time than the Pumpkin Spice!

Now, on Halloween, it has slowly become a tradition for all of our friends to meet up with their children and walk the neighborhoods together on Halloween. Again, another perfect time to add Coffee-Mate creamer to the situation. Some of us have found “trick or treating” to be a little easier with a coffee libation of the…umm…stronger persuasion. Enter the Pumpkin Pie Martini. This is the perfect seasonal “adult beverage”, and helps ward off the cold, and keep the smiles coming while the parents trudge through the neighborhoods with their children. Don’t worry, in my family one of the adults drinks, and the other does not, so we ARE keeping a good eye on our child! Regardless of when you drink it, it is a delicious way to welcome the holiday cheer, so please enjoy one of these seasonal drinks on me!
