I love everything pumpkin but have never had a pumpkin cocktail. There are a number of Pumpkin Martini recipes on the internet but they all seem to be extra creamy and fattening. Not that this martini is non-fat, but I was looking for a yummy pumpkin taste without added cream so I created my own. I also love the flavor of vanilla so I decided to combine that into the drink as well.
What else goes well with pumpkin? Graham crackers and cinnamon of course!
1 1/2 oz. Pumpkin Pie Liqueur
2 oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 graham cracker
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
Crush a graham cracker until it becomes fine crumbs.
Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the cinnamon and put on a plate.
Wet the rim of a martini glass and dip into the graham cracker cinnamon crumbs.
In a cocktail shaker add ice, vodka, and the pumpkin liqueur and shake well.
Pour into the rimmed martini glass. Enjoy!
