Party Panache, Pumpkin Pie Martini

A”Seasonal Sipper,” he said, “We should have a special drink for every season!” What a fun idea!  Recently Hungry Husband and I were having a quiet lunch and thinking about the upcoming holidays.  We decided it might be fun to come up with a seasonal signature drink to serve to match the different seasons and events.  I had been pinning a lot of pumpkin recipes lately and thinking back remembered seeing pumpkin drinks and martinis.  I googled a few recipes and finally decided how I wanted to make these.  Some of the recipes are more complicated than others, and some call for canned pumpkin…I’m all about easy peasy if it can still be good, and sometimes simple is just better.

The ingredients are Vanilla Vodka, Pumpkin Pie Liqueur, a little milk or cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice

You can add graham cracker crumbs to the rim of your glass if you want to get fancy…

And a sprinkling of Pumpkin Pie Spice or Cinnamon on top completes this easy and delicious “Seasonal Sipper!”

I warn you, this is potent so you might want to add some cream or milk.  The Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur is sort of like Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, creamy and dreamy.

An elegant glass is important for this elegant drink…

But, color outside the lines a little, it doesn’t have to be a martini glass.  This pumpkin wine glass is perfect!

and be sure to add some seasonal decor to compliment your drink!

This drink is on my bucket list this month

PUMPKIN PIE MARTINI, a “Seasonal Sipper”    for a printable version click here

2 parts Vanilla Vodka [If you don’t have Vanilla Vodka, use regular vodka and add a dash of vanilla]

3 parts Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur [Fulton’s Harvest]

1-3 parts 2% milk or 1/2 and 1/2

dash of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon

graham crackers for rimming glass [optional]

crushed ice

Combine vodka, liqueur and ice into a martini shaker, pitcher., or blender.  Shake, stir or blend until the liquid is well chilled, adding milk or cream to taste.  Decant into prepared glass*.  Adjust proportions according to preference.  This drink is deceptively strong, it tastes so good you will want to CHUG it, but DON’T!

NOTE: to adhere graham cracker crumbs to the rim of a glass, wet the rim with your finger dipped in egg white or simple syrup [sugar water] and place glass, rim side down, on a plate of crumbs and swirl the rim around to coat.
