Pumpkin Martini

Over the past three years, Felicia was inundated with requests from bartenders all over the country who wanted to know her secret to making an amazing Pumpkin Martini. Truth be told, they wanted to know where the heck she got her pumpkin liqueur since Bols had stopped making it. Well, kids, Felicia is a thrifty gal and she bought five cases of the stuff when she heard that it would be unavailable. This fall, just as Felicia’s stock was becoming dangerously low - chorus of angels - Bols Pumpkin Smash is back AND Hiram Walker is making its own Pumpkin Spice liqueur. Will Felicia divulge her highly coveted Pumpkin Martini recipe? Why the heck not. You’ll be able to read it in her soon-to-be-published recipe book anyway. Those of you who are skeptical about trying a Pumpkin Martini, Felicia reassures you that this martini bears a strong resemblance to pumpkin pie. Why, it’s dessert in a glass!

Pumpkin Martini

1.5 ounces of pumpkin liqueur
½ ounce of Stoli vanilla vodka
1 ounce of half and half (or soy milk for you vegan freaks)
dash of pumpkin pie spice (Felicia uses her own special blend)

Shake with ice, strain into a martini glass. Top with whipped cream and another sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
