The Pumpkin Martini has long been a favorite cocktail for fall and there are a number of ways to make one. This is a simple recipe that uses vanilla vodka with cream and pumpkin liqueurs.

There are a number of pumpkin liqueurs available that rotate in and out seasonally, but if you cannot find one, use a pumpkin spice syrup or pumpkin puree as a substitute.

variation on the pumpkin martini, Member DesDurso

I love the idea of a pumpkin martini in the fall! Husband and I had trouble finding a couple of the ingredients at the tiny liquor store closest to our party destination, so we improvised. We ended up making pumpkin martinis out of Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka, Smirnoff Whip Vodka, and Pumpkin Cream Liqueur, with a little (light) whip cream dollop on top for effect and flavor. Simple and Delish. Our variation on the Recipe (Makes 2 martninis): 1 oz Vanilla Vodka 2 oz Whip Vodka 4 oz Pumpkin Cream Liqueur *Shake with ice in cocktail shaker till thoroughly chilled* *pour into 2 martini glasses *Add 1 dollop of whip cream to each martini for garnish and flavor.
