One last piece of pumpkin pie please…

Well at least to drink, and I wanted to get this shot of the Pumpkin Pie Martini recipe posted given the holidays and all the pumpkin pies around these days. This particular cocktail really does taste like you are drinking a piece of pumpkin pie, and the fresh ground nutmeg and clove garnish along with the fresh puree may be the best way to enjoy your desert and digestive all at once, although my baker friends may argue otherwise!

1 oz Oval Vodka

1 oz Frangelico

1 tbs. pumpkin puree

1 oz heavy cream

1 oz simple syrup

Ground nutmeg and ground cloves for garnish

Vigorously shake ingredients in an ice shaker until thoroughly blended and frothy; pour into a chilled martini glass and lightly dust with ground spices.

  1. I will have to post my vanilla/clementine martini recipe for you. It’s a great Christmas time martini.

  2. Ingredients

    * 3 clementines, plus 1 very thinly sliced, for garnish
    * 1 cup sugar
    * 1 cup water
    * 2/3 cup cranberry juice
    * 1/3 cup lime juice
    * 1 1/2 cups vanilla flavored vodka (recommend: Grey Goose

    Directions

    Cut the clementines into quarters and squeeze their juice into a saucepan. Add the sugar, water and clementine flesh and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes. Pour into a strainer set over a measuring cup, pressing on the solids to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids, cool the liquid to room temperature and pour into a pitcher. Add the cranberry juice, lime juice and vodka and stir well. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Put 6 or 8 martini glasses in the freezer.

    To serve, pour the mixture into an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake until very cold. Pour into the chilled martini glasses and garnish each with a clementine slice. Drink up and enjoy!
