Blue Ice Autumn Cocktails

Just in time for cooler weather, Blue Ice Vodka has some great recipes on their website for autumn cocktails, including:

All-American Chilled Apple Pie
1 1/4 oz Blue Ice Vodka
3/4 oz Tuaca Liqueur
1/2 oz Sweet & Sour
Fill with Chilled Apple Cider
Build in order over ice in a 12 oz glass, garnish with a lemon slice, a long cinnamon stick, and a straw.

Blue Ice Pumpkin Pie Martini
4 parts Blue Ice Vodka
1 part DaVinci Pumpkin Pie Syrup
Cinnamon Sugar
Add Blue Ice and Pumpkin Pie Syrup to a cocktail shaker, shake well and strain. Garnish with an orange slice and pour into a cocktail glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar.

Candy Apple Martini
1 ½ oz Blue Ice American Vodka
½ oz Butterscotch Schnapps
¾ oz Apple Schnapps
1oz Cranberry Juice
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake well. Strain into 8oz cocktail glass.

Blue Ice is made in Idaho with Idaho potatoes (makes perfect sense), and it was rated the #1 tasting American vodka in 2003 by the Beverage Tasting Institute.

I think the recipe for chilled apple pie is a great one for the grownups to try while the kids are carving pumpkins...
