If you're ready to start the Holiday season early, here's the perfect cocktail. Though I wouldn't consider myself a huge fan of pumpkin, this mellow blend of pumpkin and vanilla, with a hint of chocolate, is simply amazing. I'm posting this cocktail a bit earlier than I had planned because I just found out that the main ingredient is only at the ABC store for a limited time. Once it's gone, it's gone. So if you think you'd like to try one, hopefully you'll have enough time to pick up a bottle, or two. It's called Fulton's Harvest Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur, and only costs about $10. If you're having friends over for the holidays, this unique Martini will surely put everyone in the spirit of the season. The cinnamon stick garnish adds a nice touch. Give it a try, our featured cocktail... Pumpkin Martini. Cheers!
*Update - Nov. 2014... Fulton's Harvest may be on shelves a bit longer now.
1.5 oz. Half & Half
Cinnamon Stick to garnish (available in the spice section at the grocery store)
Combine the liquid ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Cover, shake well, and strain into a chilled Martini glass. Drop in a cinnamon stick, and let the holidays begin. Enjoy!
Coming next week......French Vanilla Martini
