Perhaps My Favorite Fall Cocktail Recipe: The Pumpkin Martini
As I have said previously, one of my favorite things about Fall is that it’s pumpkin season…. pumpkin lattes, pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins… I love it all. So when it comes to fall cocktails, one of the best is the pumpkin martini. Spicy goodness that tastes a little like dessert. So here’s an easy recipe to get you started inspired from a recipe in TheSpruceEats.com.
- 2 Ounces Vanilla Vodka
- 1/2 Ounce Cream Liquer Like Bailey’s or RumChata
- 1/2 ounce Pumpkin Liqueur
- Optional: Whipped Cream, Crushed Graham Cracker Crumbs
- Garnish: Cinnamon Stick
Shake the vodka and cream liqueur in a cocktail shaker.Add the pumpkin liqueur and shake again. Strain into a chilled martini glass.Top with whipped cream and garnish with a cinnamon stick. If desired, rim the glass, before pouring, with crushed graham cracker crumbs.
Apple Cider Mule – Courtesy of A Couple Cooks
I found this apple cider mule recipe on aCoupleCooks.com. As they promise, it’s super easy and quite yummy. And yes, “you can mix it all in a glass. No cocktail shakers required!”
- 1/4 Cup Vodka
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
- 1/4 Cup Apple Cider
- 1/3 Cup Ginger Beer
- Garnish: Cinnamon Stick or Lime Wedge
Pour the vodka, lime juice and apple cider into a copper mule cup. Add ginger beer. Garnish with a lime or cinnamon stick.
Insider Tip: Copper mule cups are easy to find at your local thrift or consignment shop like Consignments Ltd.. If you’re not up for a hunt or you don’t have one, no worries. Just use a mug or cup of your choice.
