Halloween Food Day 15: Creamy Pumpkin Pie Martini

It’s Saturday night, and that naturally calls for cocktails.  I have seen several recipes for pumpkin martinis lately and decided that that sounded perfect for this evening, seeing as I have been doing pumpkin things for a few days.  I didn’t really want to go out and buy a bottle of cream de cacao or some other liquor that we would rarely use, so I improvised based on what we had in the house.

This recipe is slightly based off of on I found at a new site I stumbled upon just tonight, We Are Not Martha.

Makes 2:

•ice cubes
•4 oz. plain vodka
•splash of vanilla extract
•1 oz. simple syrup
•2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Butter (It’s not just for breakfast anymore!)
•2 oz. cream

Fill a martini shaker full of ice.  Add remaining ingredients.  Shake until very cold and well mixed.  Pour into two glasses and enjoy.
