I have been looking at making Pumpkin Pie Martinis for about a year and for some reason just never made them! Tonight I realized that I had not posted anything in a while (sorry – I have cooked things but was away at Punkin Chunkin with my 2010 World Champion Team and did not take photos of the goodies I brought down there with me). Since I am now home from the Chunk – I figured it would be a perfect time to make a Pumpkin Pie Martini!
This recipe is version #1 of this experiment. I would cut down on the Rum here – maybe 1/2 and ounce and bump up the Kahlua to 1 1/2 ounces. Feel free to use some more spices (I added a dash of both nutmeg and ginger). Just as this was attempt #1 at this martini (with changes coming for next time) this is also attempt #1 at these photos – changes coming there too!
Pumpkin Pie Martini
- 1 oz Malibu rum
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie filling (depending on desired taste)
Blend all ingredients together in a blender with a few cubes of ice.
Serve in a glass rimmed with very finely crushed graham cracker crumbs. To rim the glass – just dip the rim of the glass in water and then have crumbs on a plate and dip the rim right on in!
Sprinkle more cinnamon on top for garnish. Enjoy!
