I woke up to the sound of pouring rain this morning, and then poof…the rain had stopped! I was hoping that it would mean a cool down in temperatures and some much needed drought relief, but no. I will continue to dream about crisp, fall temperatures. The fabulous flavors of pumpkin and apple baking in the oven!

So I bring you this cool, refreshing Pumpkintini cocktail that has the flavors of fall. The original recipe is from Rachael Ray, but I needed to make a few tweaks. First of all, I did not have any pumpkin pie filling. I did however have a can of pureed pumpkin, and I added some spices. When I say a pinch, I seriously mean A PINCH.

I dipped the corner of the smallest measuring spoon that I could find into each of the spices. You don’t want to put a full pie’s worth of flavor into two drinks!

Second change – I cannot use half and half, so I substituted boxed coconut milk and it worked perfectly. Third change – well that would be the Sortilege Maple liqueur that they do not sell in Iowa…I have looked…for years! From what I have been able to determine, Maple liqueur is basically maple syrup and whiskey. Well that’s easy enough to recreate!

  1. OhMyGoodness. Now, let me start by saying the WORST nights of my life have been caused by chocolate martinis. I haven’t had ANY kind of ‘tini in over 2 years.

    This just might break my fast…..YUM!

  2. Lisa, this I definitely need to try! How awesome to get the tastes of fall in a glass!!! Did you know that Pinnacle now makes a Pumpkin Pie vodka? I just bought a bottle and have not tried it yet…wonder if I could use it in this recipe? Thanks for sharing and pinning! 🙂 (ps…bring these to BOTW next Friday!) Hugs!

  3. Lisa,
    That sounds really good! I haven’t tried any pumpkin type drink before but you make it sound so tasty and simple I might just have to whip one up this Fall. Thanks so much for sharing it at the DIY Sunday Showcase.
    Cheers to you and yours,
