PUMPKIN PIE MARTINI - Pumpkin Cocktail


The PUMPKIN PIE MARTINI Recipe

This martini will surprise you, it did me. I wanted to create a Thanksgiving martini with the classic flavors of the holiday. When you think of Thanksgiving what's the first food that you think of? Turkey and Dressing. I might be The Martini Diva but I'm not a miracle worker, even I couldn't come up with a turkey and/or dressing cocktail that anyone would really want to drink.

Then I remembered that the one thing I looked forward to most on Thanksgiving was my Mom's pumpkin pie. I waited all year for that pumpkin pie and pumpkin was a taste I could work with. My miracle came in the form of a bottle of Hiram Walker's Pumpkin Spice. Though the liqueur by itself smells and tastes a bit like butterscotch, when mixed with the right balance of other ingredients I wound up with almost a perfect liquid version of my Mom's pumpkin pie!

People are a bit leery of the idea when I offer them one but the minute they take the first sip they are converted to Pumpkin Pie Martini fans. If you love pumpkin pie, you'll love this martini too.

I also have this recipe on a Thanksgiving recipe card as well for those of you who collect my recipe cards.
