Cut off all outer skin of pumpkin and the cut the pumpkin into cubes and separate seeds and non-usable pieces.

Take vanilla bean and cut in half horizontally. Place all ingredients into a large glass jar, and store warm.

After 2 days, remove the cinnamon stick (as it will overpower infusion).

After 4 days, remove ingredients, strain through a cheese cloth, and return to empty bottles or clean glass container.

Shake pumpkin-infused Portón over ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with apple slice.

Pumpkin Pie Martini

As the leaves begin to turn their autumn colors, all thoughts turn to pumpkin. In the drink world, that includes the pursuit for the perfect pumpkin martini. When that craving for all things pumpkin hits, you'll love this delicious RumChata recipe.

The creamy liqueur is made with dairy cream and has hints of cinnamon and vanilla, so it's an ideal foundation for a sweet pumpkin cocktail. The recipe uses a pumpkin liqueur, though that can be hard to find. Pumpkin spice syrup and even pumpkin pie filling are good substitutes. A shot of vanilla vodka marries the two liqueurs and creates a fantastic three-ingredient dessert cocktail that's sure to please.

Pumpkin Pie Martini

This cocktail may not make your day better. And, this libation certainly won&rsquot make that annoying person, task or thing poof into thin air&hellip but, it certainly will put a smile on your face.

Or at least put a small skip (or wobble, depending on how many of these you drink) in your step.

These martinis taste like a boozy, bodacious pumpkin pie. This cocktail is smooth, creamy, sweet and rich with nuances of pumpkin and cinnamon. Essentially it is the dessert portion of Thanksgiving in a chilled glass, minus the hours of slaving away in a kitchen.

Confession time, I have never been a fan of pumpkin pie. It&rsquos a little too goopy for my taste, but this pumpkin pie martini? I could, and did, totally get down with this cocktail.

Besides, no offense to the pie, I happen to think this martini is prettier too! I mean, just look at that graham cracker-cinnamon-sugar coated rim, the slight dusting of nutmeg and the stick of cinnamon acting as a stirrer.

Does pumpkin pie have that? Um, no.

And if you want to get all fancy-dancy with it, I suggest you add a huge dollop of whipped cream. Because life is made sweeter with whipped cream. Fact.

So whether or not you are having a bad day and like or loath pumpkin pie, you need to shake together this pumpkin pie martini. The season calls for it and you, my friend, deserve it! 😉 Until next time, Cheers &ndash to sippin&rsquo on somethin&rsquo scrumptious.

Pumpkin-Tini - Recipes

I always try to create a seasonal pumpkin cocktail to serve both for Halloween and Thanksgiving. And when I say pumpkin cocktail, I mean with actual pumpkin puree in it. Big yum and healthy. Or at least that part of the cocktail is healthy. But seriously, pumpkin puree is great for cocktails.

And since we're indulging in candy I offer the option for a skinnier drink with my Sweet 'N Low skinny syrup. I've been making it and keeping a bottle in the fridge so that I can make drinks as sweet as I want without adding extra calories. A little bubbly from seasonal sparkling apple cider and this drink goes down dangerously easy. Cheers!

Fall Festive Jack-O-Tini with Pumpkin Spiced Rum

It is so time for a Fall Cocktail

I have been fortunate to have some of my close friends visit, from far away. I have a house full (did I say full) of very genuine, smart, talented, funny and loving friends. This is my “away” team from Cali, Texas and Florida. My “home team” is fabulous as well. A great network of friends whether they’re the “away team or home team” is a necessity for continued sanity. And Fall Festive Jack-O-Tini with Pumpkin Spiced Rum will add to the party.

If you don’t have a network of fabulous confidants, make it a mission to do so, and soon. Close friends are vital and necessary to have in a time of need. Mix in a friend or two to any mundane task and it will become an improved outing. Great friends are priceless and a joy. Certainly I love all of my friends and feel very fortunate to have met each one of them.

Friends are a different kind of family. Love is unlimited and should be shared. As with all families, there are times of challenges. It is important to work your way through the challenges and get back to love. At times if it’s difficult remember love conquers all. Eventually.

Fire Pit loaded with wood

With the fall leaves dropping, the fire pit loaded with wood and temperature nippy enough for a fire, it’s time for a Martini. In my preparation for house guests, I perused the happy hour offerings. I discovered Captain Morgans Jack-O-Blast. It is a seasonal Fall Festive Jack-O-Tini with Pumpkin Spiced Rum.

Pumpkin Pie-tini

First I brought you the Apple Pie Martini, my adult version of the good ol’ American classic apple pie. Next up, a Pumpkin Pie-tini. My adult version of the other good ol’ American classic pumpkin pie. Hey, it’s that time of the year…had to do it!

For this martini, I used Pinnacle vanilla flavored vodka as the base. Then I added a couple spoonfuls of pumpkin puree, some pumpkin pie spices, a little half and half and what I think brought it all together nicely, Torani Pumpkin Pie sauce. I’m sure that syrup was meant for coffee and lattes but it goes perfectly in this Pumpkin Pie-tini. I also happen to think it would make a nice ice cream topping! I picked a bottle of it up at my local Walmart but I’m sure many grocery stores stock it this time of year. If you’re unable to find it, I’d suggest try using a little simple syrup to sweeten it up a bit and more pumpkin pie spice.

I hope you give this Pumpkin Pie-tini a try before all the pumpkin frenzy is over for the season!

Join the Conversation My hands down all time favorite cocktail is the Meyer Lemon Sidecar. My highball is raised high in honor of JC Wilson who wrote that delightful recipe. It changed my life for the better. Woe is me, however, for this delicious treat with a hint of bubble gum is seasonal. I find myself wandering the farmer’s markets searching in vain for the bitter sweet fruit when it is out of season. Plain Jane sidecars simply won’t due. So while I wait for my precious lemons to reappear, won’t you share with me you’re favorite cocktail? more
