Contrary to popular belief the end of October is not the official end of Pumpkin season. Pumpkins can flourish through the months of November and December.  Coffee houses still sell their pumpkin spice lattes and your granny will still make her pumpkin pie.  So put all those pumpkin products to use this month!  Last month I noticed Pumpkin Cider while shopping in Aldi Supermarket.  I’m a fan of apple cider, but I have never sampled pumpkin cider.  Not one to shy away from a challenge, I purchased the Natures Nectar Sparkling Spiced Pumpkin Cider and created a fall pumpkin cocktail.  The pumpkin cider tastes like it sounds, it had the bitter taste and texture of an apple cider but with a pumpkin flavor.
