Can someone tell me how it’s November already? I feel like October flew by and I absolutely have not had enough pumpkin things yet. I decided to change that with this White Chocolate Pumpkin Martini! It’s the perfect infusion of pumpkin spices to bring you all of the warming flavors which is also perfect for Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday for food bloggers and lucky for you, I’ve teamed up with more than 20 blogs to bring you Blogsgiving Dinner hosted by Meghan from Cake ‘n Knife and Susannah from Feast + West! Feel free to scroll to the bottom of this post to see what everyone is bringing!
The idea is based on a pot-luck dinner so each blogger is bringing one or more dishes to the party. I’ve scrolled through and found plenty of things I want to add to my menu so be sure to stop by each one and get some ideas for your own Thanksgiving meal. We’ll be posting to social media with the hashtag #blogsgivingdinner!
There’s everything from drinks to desserts and soups to salads and side dishes! There’s other items too, but they didn’t work as well with my alliteration. You’ll just have to scroll to find out what they are ?
Now this drink. You guysssss. I am in love. Obsessed some might say. Pumpkin spice has my heart like everyone else in the fall, but you can only have so many #PSLs or pumpkin pies.
I don’t know about you, but by the time I’m done making and eating Thanksgiving dinner, dessert is probably the last thing on my mind.
- Mostly because I don’t want to make it
- Because I am usually stuffed to the brim (helloooo stretchy pants)
This drink fixes that dilemma! It’s quick to throw together, tastes like dessert, and isn’t too filling.
Also I realize that I called this a martini and it’s not in a martini glass. I’m a food blogger that doesn’t own martini glasses. Sorry ’bout it.
You can definitely scale this recipe for the crowd at Thanksgiving dinner. I also like drinking it cold, but if you want to try it warm it’s also great that way! It’d probably go great sitting in a crock-pot just be sure to stir every so often and maybe add the alcohol to your cup rather than in the big batch.
I think the pumpkin spice is subtle enough so add as much or as little as you’d like!
Now that I think I’ve convinced you to try it, scroll through to find more things to try! Recipe is at the bottom if you just can’t wait for it. ?? ?

This is so perfect for Thanksgiving! As much as I love dessert, I'm always too full after the feast. This allows for something sweet AND booze. Too good!
