Pumpkin Cake Martini

Day 272



Pumpkin Cake Martini
5 shots out of 5


Oh my goodness this has been the longest day.....ever!  Problem is, it's STILL not over!!  I still have to make sure all 4 kids, husband and I all eat.  My husband has a soccer ratings meeting and I have a meeting to go to with my oldest for an 8th grade trip they're taking.  This cocktail is....SOOOO needed!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  What a "perfect" cocktail to help me relieve some of today's stress!  3 easy ingredients, 2 of which are available year round.  I was totally nervous about this cocktail because I know how spicy the Pumpkin Pie Liqueur is and I was worried that 1 1/2 ounces of it would be too much, but it's not!  It's the most perfectest amount EVER!  Needless to say, I love this Pumpkin Cake Martini and will be gulping the rest of it down here in a couple minutes!  I found this recipe at daydreamerdesserts.

Here is the recipe for a Pumpkin Cake Martini:

  • 1 1/2 oz pumpkin pie liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz cake vodka
  • 3/4 oz milk
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake up your mixture and strain it into a martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

  1. Looks yummy, but I can't think what you will do with the balance of that bottle of liqueuer! Though such flavorings could make baking fun for a while-- you could even add some to what you bake, ha.
