Pumpkin Pie Martini’s
Happy Fall Y’all!!! One of my favorite things about the fall is Pumpkin Spice everything. So I have developed this fun little Pumpkin Pie Martini, which is sure to make any pumpkin lover swoon.
I completely understand that the holidays can get so busy, with cooking, entertaining, black Friday prep, but this sweet little drink is so easy to make. How nice would it be to be able to just open up your refrigerator and pour a bar quality drink for you guest within minutes? No shaker, no mess and with just 5 simple ingredients.
THE GROCERY LIST:
- Pumpkin Flavored Eggnog
- William Wolf Pecan Flavored Bourbon
- Graham Cracker pre-crushed
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Fresh Grated Nutmeg (yes it must be fresh)
Okay, so a couple of things I want to go over from the picture above. The heavy cream is to make homemade whipped cream, of course you can use a redi whip, (frowny face) but I personally like to make my own whip cream. You may think that it’s hard and dirty’s up your mixer. However, I have the perfect solution for you. I have had mine for years but this is a gourmet whip cream dispenser from William Sonoma. All you do is add I pint of cream attach the CO2 cartridge, shake and you have fresh whip cream. No sugar, no additives, no mess. I also always use fresh nutmeg and for that I use a nutmeg grater also at available at William Sonoma. These are some of my seasonal must haves to cook in the kitchen.
If you can not find this brand, please exact my deepest apologies because for this drink it is pure perfection. My friend Hunter, at our local package store The Cork & Barrel always gets this brand in for me at my request. Even though he knows my husband is a Jack Daniels man, this particular bourbon is hard to beat this time of year. Plus look at that super cute label.
PUMPKIN PIE MARTINI RECIPE:
Dip Martini glass into water and then dredge in graham cracker crumbs to make a ring around the glass.
