A recipe we’ve been playing around with, and took to a Halloween party Saturday night. It’s quite tasty. For a single serving:
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce vanilla liqueur
- 1.5 ounces apple juice
- 1 tbsp. real pumpkin
- Cinnamon (dash)
- Nutmeg (garnish)
In a shaker with ice, shake up all the ingredients (yes, shaken, not stirred). The pumpkin should be pureed—canned pumpkin, in other words. The best apple juice I’ve found is all-natural—the cider-looking stuff.
You can rim the glasses with graham cracker crumbs, and even do a spritz of whipped cream on the drink—you could consider that the "pumpkin pie martini."
