PUMPKIN PIE MARTINI - Pumpkin Cocktail

Pumpkin pie martini cocktail recipe

This cocktail will surprise you, it did me. I wanted to create a drink with the classic flavors of the holidays and the one thing I looked forward to most at the holidays was my Mom's pumpkin pie. I waited all year for that pumpkin pie. Thankfully, pumpkin was a holiday food flavor I could work with.

My real miracle came when Hiram Walker came out with their Pumpkin Spice Liqueur way back in 2007. 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.

Later, when Hiram Walker's Pumpkin Spice became harder to find, I would venture into making my own Pumpkin Liqueur.

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.
