The Pumpkin Martini

Specter, October 25, 2007

Many people will have their Halloween parties this weekend and the majority of those will have spirits - high spirits, spirits of the dearly departed, and of course distilled spirits. While I can't help you with the spirits of the dearly departed, I can tell you how to raise your spirits with distilled spirits in the form of the noble pumpkin martini.

Pumpkin martini's are a bit of an acquired taste. People either love them or hate them but they're more than worth making at your Halloween gathering as an expression of the season. Here are three pumpkin martini recipes.

Pumpkin Martini

Pumpkin Martinis
  • 1/2 oz Drambuie Sylk Cream Liqueur
  • 2 oz Absolut Vanilia vodka
  • 1/2 oz pumpkin liqueur
  • 1 tsp whipped cream
  • Cinnamon stick for garnish

Pour the Drambuie Sylk Liqueur and vodka into a shaker filled with ice and shake well. Add the pumpkin liqueur and shake. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Top with teaspoon of whipped cream. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
