Pumpkin Party Martini

Pumpkin Party Martini

As much fun as it can be to create creepy, spooky Halloween foods, they don't always entice me to eat them. And the cocktails are sometimes the most gruesome with "blood" dripping down the sides. Fun, sure...creative, sure...will I be posting one...maybe. But I probably won't be drinking one.

Pumpkin Party Martini
What I will be drinking this Halloween is this delightful and simple pumpkin martini. Brian and I are invited to a party at one of his cousins' houses and we plan to bring a big batch. The ingredients can be mixed ahead and placed in the refrigerator until it's time to set them out on trays for the guests. Creepy, no...but tasty and very, very festive. Cheers!

Per Serving:
2 oz. Vanilla vodka
1 oz. Unsweetened pumpkin puree
1/2 oz. Pumpkin Spice liqueur (optional)
1/2 oz. Simple syrup
Pinch of cinnamon

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake well. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and top with another dusting of cinnamon.
