Pumpkin Pie Martini

Hello and happy Halloween! I’m positing a cocktail recipe today just in time for a treat on All Hallows’ Eve tonight. I was inspired by a drink I’d had at a local cafe called Hangry and wanted to create my own version of a Pumpkin Pie Martini.

I’ve tried to make it as balanced a drink as possible but if you’re not a fan of pumpkin spice this one may not be for you! As ever, make sure you drink responsibly and if this sounds up your street then I’d recommend giving it a go!

Recipe

4 tsp Pumpkin Purée

60ml Vanilla Vodka (I use Vodka Absolut)

15ml Dark Rum (I use Havana Club)

15ml Pumpkin Spice Syrup and a Little more for the sugar rim (I use Monin)- you could use maple syrup and then add some mixed spice and cinnamon to the drink

30ml Orange Juice

15ml of Vermouth

1 tbsp Sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

Whipped cream to garnish and a cinnamon stick (optional)

  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon together into a shallow dish
  • Rim your coupe glass (or any glass you like) with the Pumpkin Syrup or maple.
  • Then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture so that your glass has a sweet rim around it.
  • Put all of the drink ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well so that the drink is diluted slightly.
  • Pour into your glasses and garnish with some whipped cream to one side and a cinnamon stick. If you want to go all out you could add some gold edible glitter!

Hope you enjoyed this short and sweet one!

Lots of love,
