Harvest Gold Signature Drink

Planning an autumn wedding? Looking for a signature drink? Daily Candy has a great cocktail for you! Their Harvest Pumpkin Cocktail is sure to go down smoothly and taste great! Not only that the rich color of this signature drink is sure to be a great accent in both color and taste.

I love food that is attractive, smells good and goes down smooth! Try it... you are sure to enjoy it. Even if you decide to serve it as the signature drink at your first Thanksgiving Dinner together, it's a great recipe to hold onto.

3 oz. pumpkin-infused vodka (see below)

½ oz. fresh lemon juice (about half a lemon)
