Every good Halloween party deserves a good pumpkin martini. I happen to LOVE pumpkin so I created a Spooky Good Pumpkin Martini recipe for all the Halloween parties coming up—big or small. It’s so good, I’ll be making this for Thanksgiving as well. Trick or treat—it’s pumpkin pie in a martini glass!

Move over pumpkin spice latte, this is now my favorite pumpkin drink.

This happens to be one of my all-time favorite fall cocktails, because it’s easy to make and sure to impress. Plus, it’s just so dang good. If you have pumpkin purée and pumpkin pie spice on hand, you’re pretty much ready to go. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wouldn’t be surprised if you have all the ingredients in your pantry right now. And yes, it does taste like a real slice of pumpkin pie.

What you ask, are the best garnishes for a pumpkin pie martini?  

Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a buttery graham cracker rim for a truly authentic pumpkin pie experience. Pair with vanilla ice cream or caramel drizzle to make it even more decadent. Rich, creamy and sweet… you’ll be drinking dessert tonight. 

Pro tip: Shaken, not stirred. Make sure to shake this cocktail for a full 30 seconds.
