Pumpkin spice flavor all year round

When fall rolls around, we know that you want pumpkin spice in all its forms. You desire a pumpkin spice infusion of everything. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice lip balms, pumpkin spice toilet paper. Given half a chance, you would hook yourself up to a pumpkin spice IV drip. We hear you.

Your pumpkin spice craving can extend to booze habits, friends. And we don’t just mean pumpkin spice cocktails. We’re talking jello shots. Why leave those behind in the summer when the weather turns? Don’t you want to combine your love of semi-solid cocktails with your desire for more pumpkin spiced items? Well? Are you committed to pumpkin spice? Must we doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion?

Here’s the deal: pour ¾ cup of bottled Starbucks Frappuccino and ¼ cup ginger ale into a saucepan. Add two Knox gelatin packets and just let them sit there for 2 minutes, no stirring. This is going to taste just like a pumpkin spice latte when you’re done, so patience, grasshopper.

After two minutes, turn the burner on medium heat, then whisk and dissolve the gelatin. Then add 2 tablespoons evaporated milk and 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice mix and stir to combine. Warm until almost boiling, then turn off heat.

Add a cup of whipped cream flavored vodka and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture into little plastic shot glasses. Does it evoke pumpkin pie yet? Don’t worry, it will.

Let the mixture sit in the fridge and firm up for several hours or overnight.

Don’t forget the whipped cream topping!
