Mixology at Home - Pumpkin Spice Martini
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - It’s the holiday season and that means we showcase festive cocktails; even if I grumble about it.
Full disclosure - I do hate holiday specialty drinks. Holiday drinks usually have some ingredients you don’t normally stock in your home bar; or kitchen for that matter.
That’s the case with our pumpkin spice martini. Fortunately, it was only two ingredients I had to buy – pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. Overall, eight ingredients but still not a difficult drink to execute.
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 TBS pumpkin spice
- Maple syrup
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz Irish cream
- ½ oz simple syrup
- 1 TBS pumpkin puree
- ¼ tsp pumpkin spice
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
By the way, have I told you I hate holiday specialty drinks?
Rim a martini glass with a mixture of sugar and pumpkin spice. We brushed some maple syrup on the rim of the glass to get the rimmer to stick. I put the rimmer in a small plate, and spread it out so you can easily run the rim of the glass over it, getting an even coating.
In a shaker or mixing tins, add ice, two ounces of vodka, one ounce of Irish cream, half ounce of simple syrup, one tablespoon of pumpkin puree, a quarter teaspoon of pumpkin spice and a quarter teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Shake and pour into a martini glass, no ice, straight up.
Add some whipped cream and sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon over the top. Sit back and enjoy this holiday treat.
