Pumpkin Harvest Bourbon Martini


Pumpkin Bourbon Martini
Pumpkin is one of my favorite foods on the planet. At Thanksgiving, I will merrily eat (and drink) Pumpkin everything. I’ve served these texture rich, Bourbon laced drinks on a few occasions this holiday season, and they are my Thanksgiving eve drink of choice this year. Enjoy this sweet little drink and be merry, merry.
Yield: 1 Cocktail, multiply as needed

    1 oz. Kentucky Bourbon
    1 oz. Laird’s Applejack or other Apple Brandy
    1 Tsp Pumpkin Puree
    0.5 oz. Triple Sec
    0.5 oz. Rich Syrup*
    Dash Cinnamon
    Dash Nutmeg
    Dash Cloves

    *Rich Syrup is just a richer/thicker version of simple syrup. Dilute 2 parts Sugar with 1 part warm water (no need to heat or boil, the warm water will speed dilution).

    1. Measure out volumes of ingredients as indicated above – Bourbon, Brandy, Pumpkin, Triple Sec, Rich Syrup and Spices – and pour into a cocktail shaker. (Note: If you do not have a cocktail shaker a quart size mason jar works great, just make sure you have a lid.)
    2. Fill shaker 3/4 full with ice. Firmly cap shaker and shake vigorously, ensuring the ingredients hit each end of the shaker on each movement.
    3. Strain into a martini glass. (Note, drink will separate from Pumpkin as it sits, so I suggest serving with a little stirrer in the glass.) Drink up and Enjoy!

    1. I might have to make one of these today while cooking Thanksgiving turkeys today! I have some frozen pumpkin puree from Jen’s parent’s garden.

      1. Yay! They are super tasty. I made them here in PA, Pam is making them back in Kentucky. Good stuff. If you don’t have Apple Brandy, I recommend 1.5 oz Bourbon and 0.5 oz Apple Cider instead. 😉 Happy Thanksgiving!
