Pumpkin Pie Martini

The holidays are officially here!  Halloween is ova and Thanksgiving is now right around the corner!  And today is.....Thirsty Thursday! To be festive, we are making Pumpkin Pie Martinis tonight! Yummers!

To me, what makes Fall official is the red cups coming back to Starbucks.  Their holiday favorites are the pumpkin spice, peppermint mocha, and gingerbread latte.  Everybody especially loves them some pumpkin spice, so why not add a little alcohol to this fan favorite and call it a night!

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks, family, friends, turkey, and pie!  Whether it be pumpkin, apple, or sweet potato, you absolutely need to have a pie at the Thanksgiving dinner table!   If for some reason someone forgets to bring the pie when that was the only thing you requested they bring, this Pumpkin Pie Martini can take its place!  One sip tastes like you are taking a bite of pumpkin pie.

1/2 cup ice
1 oz. vanilla vodka
1 1/2 oz. creme liqueur
1/3 cup half and half
3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
cinnamon and sugar
Combine ingredients into a martini shaker and shake, shake shake!  Coat martini rim with cinnamon and sugar.  Pour and enjoy!
