Pumpkin Pie Martini--#Pumpkin Week

This is the last day of #PumpkinWeek.  It just flew by and I have had a great time learning a lot of new pumpkin recipes and sharing my favorite recipes with everyone else.  I thought I would finish up this week with a cocktail, after is Friday.

Now, those of you who know me know that Frank is the bartender extraordinaire around here.  He does a great job of whipping up whatever I throw his way.  Well, today I decided to experiment on my own and make a Pumpkin Pie Martini.  I used some of my pumpkin puree and some heavy cream, vanilla vodka, kahlua and pumpkin spice liqueur.  I gave Frank a taste, then I took a taste....and then we threw it down the sink and I stepped aside and let the master take over LOL.

This has been a wonderful week.
Thanks for hosting Terri.
I am going to kick back and relax with this wonderful cocktail.
Happy #PumpkinWeek everyone.

  1. Oh my goodness...that sounds luscious! Good ole' Frank to the rescue....

  2. I love anything pumpkin. What other recipes do you think you could the liqueurs in (like baking)?? Hopefully I wouldn't drink THAT many martinis. LOL

    1. Well Debra, this month at #BundtBakers the theme is Booze so we are about to find out. The posts go live on November 20th so stay tuned or better yet hop on over to the facebook page and join us!!

  3. I was just revisiting our pumpkin posts - ahhh... I would like one of these martini treats tonight... though I bet they only sell those pumpkin flavor liquers seasonally - I'm going to have to keep an eye out!

    1. Yes, I haven't seen any lately but then again I haven't been looking.
