This is an amazing pumpkin-flavored cocktail, though I will warn you that it takes a bit of work. The Spiced Pumpkin Martini is, quite simply, infused Belvedere vodka with a bit of syrup and ginger. It is a delicious drink with a spicy, roasted taste that you can enjoy throughout pumpkin season and makes a fantastic addition to any meal when served with dessert.

The 'spiced syrup' is undefined in the recipe and I think it is open for interpretation. You can create a syrup and add whichever spices you see fit. Those that I would suggest would be to continue with bay leaves and add a couple of cloves, maybe cinnamon, or use a pumpkin pie spice. A ginger and cardamom syrup (Cardamom Simple Syrup Recipe) may be a good choice, and vanilla-ginger is another nice alternative. In both of these last two I would add a dash of cinnamon and allspice as well.
