This week I made my Sweet’N Low Pumpkin Spice Fizz as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own.#SweetNLowStars
Fall will be here before you know it and I want to start thinking about fall cocktails for Halloween and Thanksgiving dinner. I searched online for fall cocktails, but most of them were filled with sugar and extremely fattening. I decided to mix a fall drink that is diabetic friendly and perfect for a girl’s night in, Halloween party, or Thanksgiving dinner.
I started my drink recipe with pumpkin spread that can be used on bread or crackers as well.
Pumpkin Spice Fizz Ingredients
- 1 oz vodka
- 6 oz sparkling wine (used Processco)
- 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin mixture
- 1 packet of Sweet’N Low
- 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
- Oversized ice cube
- 1 can pumpkin (not pie mix)
- 1/2 cup water
- 20 packets Sweet’N Low
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
Instructions for Pumpkin Spread
- Combine 1 can pumpkin (not pie mix), 1/2 cup water, 20 packets Sweet’N Low, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon cloves to make sweetened pumpkin spread.
- Place sweetened pumpkin spread in a microwave-safe bowl and cook for 20 minutes stirring frequently until thick enough so it does not run off a spoon when turned upside down.
- Transfer to sterile containers and chill in the refrigerator until mixing the drinks.
- Use 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice and 1/2 packet Sweet’N Low to a small plate and shake to mix the 2 together. Wet the outside rim of the glass with a fresh lime wedge. Hold the glass parallel to the table and dab the rim into the pumpkin spice mixture so that only the outer edge is covered.
- Place the vodka, pumpkin spread 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice, and 1 packet of Sweet’N Low in the bottom of a wine glass. Stir well.
- Top with 4 oz. of sparkling wine, add oversized ice cube, and then add the remainder of the 2 oz. sparkling wine to the glass.
