Pumpkin Fizz Cocktail

pumpkin cocktail
Watching the Macy's Day Parade with friends and family this Thanksgiving? I love to do this as a brunch gathering before the main event. Serve make-ahead coffee cake and quick breads, breakfast bakes and stratas, baked egg dishes...whatever you can make in advance and heat the morning of, freeing you to get started on your dinner preparations. This is a great way to accommodate out-of-town guests.

This Pumpkin Fizz Cocktail is a spicy, autumnal twist on the traditional mimosa, and is the perfect complement to brunch foods. To make it a mocktail, use sparkling cider.

Pumpkin Fizz

Yield: 1 cocktail

Unexpected effervescence in the form of Prosecco pairs surprisingly well with pumpkin in this fizzy, lightly sweet cocktail. Try this one at brunch on Thanksgiving Day.

1 ounce simple syrup or maple syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin puree
Pinch pumpkin pie spice
Dash pure vanilla extract
4 ounces Prosecco or brut champagne

1. Stir syrup, pumpkin puree, spice, and vanilla in the bottom of a tall glass or champagne flute.
2. Top off with Prosecco and serve immediately.
