Thanksgiving cocktails and digestifs

Pumpkin pie Martini

Pumpkin pie martini

Pumpkin pie seems to shout Thanksgiving as much as a roast turkey, and it is a better cocktail inspiration. There are a multitude of pumpkin pie Martini recipes available, but a lot call for a pumpkin pie spice, which is not easily available in the UK. So db has searched for a recipe that does not contain this spice mix. Mix together two tablespoons of condensed milk with three tablespoons of pumpkin puree and a pinch of cinnamon, then mix together 2oz of vanilla vodka and 1oz of butterscotch schnapps. Add the mixed puree to the liquid, shake with ice and pour into a Martini glass with a dash of condensed milk in the bottom.

    It’s not a martini. Just serving something in a cocktail glass doesn’t make it a martini.
    A martini is either gin or vodka mixed with dry vermouth and orange bitters, stirred with ice, and strained into a a cocktail glass, garnished with a twist of lemon.

    Wow, that was great. I also want those.
