PUMPKIN SPICE MARTINI
Hello Fall! It's our favorite season here on Jasmine! The temperatures are dropping (yay sweater weather!) our neighborhood fires are back, and pumpkin spice is everywhere! Which brings us to this delightful Toast to Tuesday, the Pumpkin Spice Martini.
This martini from The Kitchen Is My Playground gives us all of the fall feels. You can't go wrong with the mix of pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. It's the perfect cocktail for either sitting with your friends around a fire or watching the latest binge worthy show on Netflix under a cozy blanket on a quiet chilly evening! (Both of these options sound delightful right now!)
3/4 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. vanilla vodka
2 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream liquor
1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Add pumpkin puree, simple syrup, vodka, Baileys and pumpkin pie spice; shake for about 30 seconds.
Pour shaken mixture through a strainer into a martini glass
Sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice and garnish with a cinnamon stick
TIP- To make your own simple syrup heat equal parts water and sugar over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a glass and allow to cool before using.
To take this Pumpkin Spice Martini to the next level garnish the glass with a delicious sugar and spice rim! To create the sugar and spice rim on your martini glass, simply combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice on a plate. Dip the top of you martini glass in water or honey for a thicker rim; then dip the rim into your sugar and spice mixture. Voila! A beautiful martini that tastes even better than it looks!
