Frozen Pumpkin Pie MartiniThis Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read Our Disclosure Policy
I love a delicious dessert cocktail. A few weeks ago when I was at an event, we mixed up some Pumpkin Milkshakes. They were the bomb.com and gave me an idea for a cocktail recipe.
My thought: Why not combine a pumpkin milkshake and a pumpkin pie martini to create a Frozen Pumpkin Pie Martini? And so I did.
With Thanksgiving only a couple weeks away, this recipe couldn’t come at a better time. Not only is it a cold and sweet libation, but it is also a joy to share and enjoy during quiet moments with loved ones.
You may be wondering what makes this cocktail so exceptional. Well, first, it’s garnished with graham cracker crumbs. That little crunch resembles the crust of the pumpkin pie.
Secondly, there’s ice cream in this cocktail. That’s the frozen part of this concoction. It also adds a delightfully creamy texture to the drink.
Pumpkin puree and spices give this martini a traditional pumpkin pie flavor.
Finally, this cocktail is topped up with a generous dollop of whipped cream and sprinkled with cinnamon for a perfect finishing touch.
Pretty decadent, don’t you think? If you love anything pumpkin spiced, you need to give this recipe a try. And for another pumpkin treat, be sure to check out my Chocolate Pumpkin Tiramisu.
Frozen Pumpkin Pie Martini
- 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 cup vanilla vodka
- 1/4 cup white chocolate liqueur
- 1/4 cup half & half
- Honey and graham cracker crumbs for glass rim
- whipped cream* and cinnamon for garnish
- Begin with two shallow dishes in place. To one, add a tablespoon of honey. To the other, add the graham cracker crumbs. Rim the edge of each martini glass first with honey and then in the graham cracker crumbs. Set aside.
- In a blender, add the ice cream, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vodka, chocolate liqueur, and half & half. Blend to combine. Pour into your prepared martini glasses.
- Top with whipped cream* and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
What a great glass garnish! The whole thing looks amazing (and I don’t even like pumpkin!) 🙂
Wow, that’s quite the compliment. Thanks Elise!
