Tips & Tricks
- Add some crushed graham crackers to the rim of your martini glasses and garnish with a cinnamon stick. Another option is to dip the rim of the glass in a little brown sugar. You can also add a pinch of pumpkin pie spice or a drizzle of caramel sauce to your whipped cream topping.
- You can substitute a flavored vodka for the plain vodka in this recipe. Pumpkin vodka, whipped cream vodka, or vanilla vodka would all be great choices.
- Be sure to shake this drink vigorously and for a bit longer than you would a normal cocktail. You’ll want to make sure that all the pumpkin is thoroughly mixed, so your drink has a nice smooth texture with no lumps.
Can I Make This in Advance?
For best results, these drinks should be served icy cold and right out of the cocktail shaker. This will ensure that all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and the drink keeps its delicious creamy texture.
