My Favorite Pumpkin Martini Recipe

When the weather turns cooler the comforting smell of cinnamon and ginger start to turn up everywhere. What better way to celebrate the Fall Equinox than with a deliciously spicy Pumpkin Martini?

I love playing with this recipe every year, making little tweaks, changing up some of the ingredients, but always making it yummy. As with most recipes, why limit yourself to the same old, same old every time you make it?

The basic ingredients are Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice Liquor, Irish Cream (Bailey’s or Emmets) and DeKuyper’s Buttershots. I’ve also replaced the Stoli with Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and a splash of half & half for a change of pace now and again. Adjust the ratios of vodka and pumpkin spice liquor to suit your personal taste.

And when you decide to make these be sure to invite us, too.  Cheers!
