Pumpkin Pie Martini

Pumpkin Pie Martini

This martini tastes like your favorite pumpkin pie in a chilled glass and were served in Simon Pearce Martini Glasses for the CH2 photoshoot recently.


3 ice cubes
2 ounces pumpkin spice vodka (substitution: regular or vanilla vodka)
1 ounce dark rum (substitution: RumChata)
2 tablespoon pumpkin purée (canned or homemade)
1 ounce maple syrup
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Optional: Pinch of pumpkin pie spice
½ ounce half and half (substitution: Irish cream)

Optional Rim:
Maple syrup, to taste
1 whole graham cracker
1/4 teaspoon each pumpkin pie spice & ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Optional Garnishes:
Whipped cream
Pumpkin pie spice
Cinnamon stick

Prepare Martini Glass Rim:
Crush graham cracker in a resealable bag or food processor until it
resembles sand. Stir in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and sugar. Dip the
rim of a martini glass into maple syrup, then roll the rim in the graham
cracker mix. Set the glass aside.

(Chef Lynn's Trick: I dip a thick napkin into the maple syrup and use the napkin to
neatly apply the syrup to the rim of the glass.)

Prepare the Martini:
In a cocktail shaker, combine the ice with the vodka, rum, pumpkin,
maple syrup and vanilla, along with the pumpkin spice if using. Shake
vigorously until shaker is chilled to the touch. Add in the cream and swirl
or stir to combine.

Strain and pour cocktail into the prepared martini glass. Garnish with
cinnamon stick, dollop with whipped cream and sprinkle with pumpkin
spice and/or nutmeg. Enjoy!
