Make your own....Pumpkin pie martini!!

This Thanksgiving, or before, who are we kidding?, Drink your Dessert!

Ok yall.

Seriously. Hang on to your hats. This recipe is a compliation of several I found online plus my own tweaks to make it easy to make with every day, inexpensive items. And, I wanted to make sure I brought you the best possible version. It took many tries. I was willing to do that for yall. You're Welcome :)

Ok, here we go: Here's a pic of everything you need. It looks like a lot, but it's not really. Also, you will need some Pumpkin Pie Spice, I forgot to put that in the pic! This makes ONE drink.
  • Martini shaker. If you don't have one, you could probably just put this in a large glass and stir it up really well. Also, you don't have to use a Martini glass, but it just looks cooler.
  • 1-ounce measuring glass or shotglass. Or, if you're brave, you can eyeball it.
  • Vanilla vodka (or regular vodka plus vanilla extract, which is what I used, because we are not fancy enough to have the flavored kind. If you have that, just omit the vanilla ext.)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Carmel syrup
  • Whipped cream. (see, sugar-free! So this is a healthy drink!)
  • Heavy cream. (you can probably use light, half and half, or milk, but the heavy cream really gives it a richness. I haven't used any of those so I can't vouch for them.)
  • Canned pure pumpkin.
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  1. Put a couple ice cubes in the shaker. Measure out 2 ounces of vodka plus 1/2 ounce vanilla extract.
  2. Add 1 ounce Heavy cream and 1/2 to 1 ounce caramel syrup, depending on your sweet tooth.
  3. Add 2 spoonfuls of pumpkin. about this much.
  4. Finally, a shake or two of pumpkin pie spice.
  5. Shake well and strain into glass. Spray a little whip on top and sprinkle a little more pumpkin pie spice.

Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!!
