This Pumpkin Pie Martini is dessert in a glass and requires only vodka, Rum Chata and pumpkin spice creamer. Finish it off with a heavy float of whipped cream, a graham cracker rim and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
I would choose this Pumpkin Pie Martini over regular pumpkin pie any day of the week (or morning for that matter). There is just something a bit off with the texture of pumpkin pie for me. I end up adding around 3 parts whipped cream to 1 part pie when I eat it once a year for Thanksgiving. A complete waste of calories in my opinion.
Flavored vodka is always preferable when making a good dessert Martini. I love using vanilla or whipped cream vodka with this recipe, or you can even get pumpkin pie vodka. Surprisingly, all three of these flavors are readily available in my liquor cabinet. There is no need to run to the liquor store for flavored vodka if you don’t have it on hand. You can always just add a drop of vanilla to your mix as well.
If you are wanting these to be even more reminiscent of pumpkin, you can also add a drop of natural orange food coloring. A cinnamon stick or two is always an impressive garnishment in a good fall cocktail. I also, love to make a chocolate version of these martinis.
There is just something so comforting about a good fall cocktail as the weather starts to change. Today, is the first day that it actually felt like fall in the St. Louis area. It had me wanting to sip on all my favorite cocktails. A Pumpkin Spice White Russian or Spiked Pumpkin Latte are always winners in my book. Check out my cocktail page for all my favorites.
