Pumpkin Martini

 

 

Pumpkin Martini
  
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.
