Pumpkin pie martini

The rim of sugar may be excessive but hey it's the holidays

Save electricity. Drink your dessert.

Pumpkin Pie Martini

  • 1 1/2 ounces pumpkin pie creme liqueur
  • 1 1/2 ounces vanilla vodka
  • 1/2 ounce brandy
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • cinnamon or cinnamon sugar (optional)

Put sugar on one small plate in a rough circle. Put maple syrup on another in the same manner. Dip a martini glass in the syrup to coat the rim and then dip in sugar. Combine liquors in a shaker with ice. Strain into prepared martini glass. Sprinkle with cinnamon or cinnamon sugar if desired.

  6. k.m. says:

    They make pumpkin creme liqueur? Is it a specialty thing or do you think most liquor stores sell it, because this looks really good and I’d love to try it!

  18. wow, bet that will make your holiday go with a ‘ping’!

  19. SimpleP says:

    Keep the sugar – looks very tasty!

  20. Charles says:

    Great idea – I love the whole maple-syrup/sugar edge lining. Delicious! I’ve never heard of pumpkin pie creme liqueur though, lol πŸ˜€ Given the popularity of pumpkin pies in the US, compared to somewhere like France, I’m guess I might have difficulties finding such a thing πŸ˜€

  21. ceciliag says:

    You are hilarious! You guys must really love pumpkin. It is exciting how you can turn anything into a drink! c

  22. That is insane…and it makes me want to hop a plane and party with you guys! πŸ˜€
    Great photo!

  23. Never heard of that liqueur! Looks so good especially with the bright orange background.

  24. sallybr says:

    Never heard of pumpkin pie liqueur… I’ve lived a sheltered life so far, I suppose… πŸ™‚

    beautiful drink!

  25. ChgoJohn says:

    Love the caption, love the cocktail, love the photo. Pumpkin pie creme liqueur, though, is a new one on me but if my drinking these martinis will help lessen our country’s energy consumption, I’ve little choice but to find a bottle. In fact, make that 2.

  26. Instead of comfort food this sounds like a comfort drink! Yum. I love pumpkin anything and the sugar and maple syrup is just the icing on the drink!

  27. Judy says:

    I think I slipped into a sugar coma just reading the ingredient list πŸ˜‰

  28. Clarification: A rim of sugar on a martini is never excessive!

  29. This one I like! I’ll take two please!

  30. spicegirlfla says:

    I’m smiling!! So, I have pumpkin spice liqueur but didn’t know about a pumpkin cream liqueur??? Is there a certain brand you purchase? Cuz you know I need to make this one!!

  31. egg me on says:

    You guys *love* your fancy, seasonal cocktails! I need to jump on the boozy bandwagon. I’m imagining how delicious this one tastes. Mmmm. Good job.

  32. zestybeandog says:

    This sounds like my kind of dessert! πŸ™‚

  33. Kelly says:

    With a byline like that, how could I possibly say no?!

  34. You’re the best. That’s it. Hands down. I love the idea of a creamy pumpkin drink…

  35. spree says:

    So out-of-the-box and IN the season! Brilliant! Think it would work to serve it in a warm snifter?

  36. Caroline says:

    Yes please! I had a similar martini at a restaurant last week, but I’ve gotta say, yours looks even better. It’s far too early to be craving one of these right now, but hey, you’re not judging, right? πŸ™‚

  38. Ok you got me with the “Save electricity. Drink your dessert.” But how come I have to go make a border run to purchase pumpkin pie creme liqueur? Don’t you know the Mormons don’t permit the mixing of their sacred Halloween with alcohol?

  39. Sissi says:

    If it wasn’t you I would never believe such a thing might exist. It looks like a dream cocktail of a pumpkin freak. This fantastic drink could change my reserved attitude towards pumpkins.

  40. I’m not much of a drinker but I think I’d enjoy this very much! It sounds wonderful.

  41. Nothing wrong with a rim of sugar every once in a while…

  42. Courtney says:

    lol. Great opening. And lovely drink.

  43. I don’t think the ring of sugar is excessive at all! Sounds so good…and such a pretty cocktail. Might have to try to figure out how to do this one dairy free for the holidays. πŸ™‚

  44. rsmacaalay says:

    I love your cocktails, they will be always the talk of the party

  45. Hehe Love the electricity bit :). Looks so festive!

  46. Drink and dessert… I am in!! πŸ˜‰

  47. Christy says:

    I’m not a big pumpkin fan, but I can tell you this looks simply irresistible! I can even taste the sweetness, lol, from your photo πŸ˜‰

  48. I might have to send this recipe to a good friend of mine.. she will absolutely love this.

  49. Karen says:

    Now you tell me…after the power is back on.

  50. Eva Taylor says:

    I’m all for conserving, Greg! Cheers to you both!

  51. Kristy says:

    Nothing excessive about the sugar on the glass for me. That looks darn near perfect! Yum!

  52. Jessica says:

    ha! I love the green dessert. You also save a lot of water by not dirtying all those baking utensils/dishes. πŸ˜‰

  53. Ed Williams says:

    this is dangerous! love it!
