For over 25 years, I have been cooking and working on creating the very best paella experience to cook for friends and family. Though out these years, I have experimented with ingredients that would create the most authentic paella available to the Nashville area and ….NOW I can say that My Paella Travels will bring to you the most authentic paella experience available from Texas to Tennessee and every state in between.
My paellas are customized for you while maintaining authenticity and quality. I use only the freshest ingredients available.
Oh! Did I mention that my paellas are Nashville-inspired?
I use fresh local sausages made for my paellas as well as fresh southern shrimp, clams, mussels and local Tennessee pork?
Not a seafood fan?
That’s okay, too! My Paella Travels will customize a paella to your palate.
From 8 to 80 guests…My Customized Paella Experiences will Travel to You!
Sweltering summer heat is gone and fall has arrived. Trade the summer cocktails by the pool or beach for two cool cocktails infused with …wait for it…..Pumpkin Spice Moonshine! That’s right! Our good moonshine-making friends at Sugarlands Distilling Co. in Gatlinburg, TN have created a very, very unique way to get your Pumpkin Spice fall fix.
3 large marshmallows, skewered
On a small plate, Demerara sugar mixed with a few dashes of Pumpkin Pie Spice for dipping glasses
Moisten the edge of the martini glass with moonshine and turn it upside down and dip rim into sugar mixture until it’s coated.
In a cocktail shaker, add ice cubes, half and half, moonshine, marshmallow vodka, and a dash of Pumpkin Pie Spice and shake vigorously. Taste and adjust for flavors by adding more ingredients, to your taste.
Pour into the sugar rimmed martini glass.
Light the marshmallows with a lighter or fire from the campfire and quickly blow out so you don’t burn up the marshmallows.
Serve the cocktail with the marshmallow garnish.
**Double the ingredients for two cocktails
***Note: We believe the pumpkin puree enhances the texture and flavor of this cocktail and recommend using it. Leftovers can be refrigerated or frozen to use for desserts or more cocktails in the future.
Pumpkin Spice Moonshine Milkshake
Here’s one milkshake just for the adults that will most likely bring out the kid in all of us! It’s not too cold yet to enjoy a cool and creamy ice cream milk shake with caramel and the most delicious moonshine ever.
