SATISFY YOUR PUMPKIN SPICE CRAVING WITH A BOOZY TWIST
Fall is in the air and that means it’s time to break out the pumpkin spice! If you’re looking for a fun, festive cocktail, try this pumpkin spice martini. The best part? It’s topped with a puff of cotton candy for a sweet, nostalgic treat.
Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Pinch of salt
- 2 ounces vanilla vodka
- 1 ounce coffee liqueur
- 1 ounce pumpkin spice simple syrup
- 1 tub pumpkin spice cotton candy
- pinch of ground cinnamon
Let’s start with the pumpkin spice simple syrup, which provides the backbone of flavor for the drink. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, water, pumpkin pie spice, and a pinch of salt. Heat over medium, stirring frequently, until the brown sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely before using.
Next, pour a small amount of your simple on a plate to create the rim. Make sure not to use too much or the cotton candy will dissolve! Start adorning your martini glass with puffs of pumpkin spice cotton candy and sprinkle ground cinnamon on top.
For the martini, fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add the vanilla vodka, coffee liqueur, and pumpkin spice simple syrup. Feel free to use your favorites or whichever you have on hand. I prefer vanilla vodka for a smooth, creamy flavor that pairs nicely with the pumpkin and spice. Cover and shake vigorously until chilled. Strain into a martini glass.
- If you’re feeling extra fancy while serving friends or family, drop a dollop of cotton candy into the glass to watch it dissolve and add extra pumpkin spice flavor.
