This pumpkin martini is like a milkshake in a cocktail glass... only much better.
A friend sent me this recipe and commanded that I make and post this, and being the ever obedient and devoted friend, I obliged. Fortunately, I had some leftover pumpkin puree from this post, but if you don't want to open a whole can of pumpkin puree, you can use pumpkin baby food. Picture yourself buying a bottle of vanilla vodka and a single jar of pumpkin baby food....
Justification for having one of these? A shot of vitamin A. Right?
1 T sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 T vanilla vodka
2 T half and half
1 T pumpkin puree
1 T maple syrup
- Mix the sugar and cinnamon on a plate.
- Wet the rim of a chilled martini glass and twist it through the cinnamon sugar to coat the rim.
- Fill a shaker with ice and add the vodka, half and half, pumpkin puree, and maple syrup.
- Shake vigorously and strain into the martini glass.
Cheers! Happy holidays!
