To make your very own pumpkin martini at home, follow these simple steps:
Using two saucers, add crushed graham crackers to one and maple syrup to the other.
Next, rim your glass in the maple syrup, then graham crackers well.
Add vodka, heavy cream, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.
Shake vigorously until well chilled, about 30 seconds to 1 minute (your hands will get cold!).
Strain into a martini glass and garnish with whipped cream, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon stick (optional).
But what if you don’t like pumpkin? Or, if you do like it, how can you make this seasonal cocktail even better? We’ve got the perfect solution: substitute apple cider for the pumpkin purée and top it with an apple slice.
It’s important to note that if you don’t drink alcohol, you can still enjoy this drink! To make it alcohol-free, use non-alcoholic vanilla syrup instead of vodka. This will give it the same flavor without the buzz.
We hope that this guide will help you make and enjoy your very own pumpkin martini in time for Halloween. If you try it out, be sure to send us a pic of how it turned out. We would love to feature your creations! Be Well-Omniley
Season Greetings. I hope you are in the final stretch of your Christmas shopping and decorating. This year it is very difficult to locate ornaments for my final two trees. I’m hoping this is a sign that everyone is enjoying the season by decorating. Traditions are very important to my family so today I decided to share my Holiday Milk Punch with you. I normally make this cocktail at least once during the holiday season. I love a creamy cocktail and this one checks all the boxes of richness and creaminess.
One of the key ingredients in classic milk punch is bourbon. I have grown quite fond of bourbon lately and I enjoy trying new varieties. Today’s cocktail features Jefferson’s Reserve bourbon.
As I stated early this cocktail has become a tradition of mine for the holidays and this is the first time I’ve made it in a single serving and I realized I should have been all along. It keeps the favorite profile and all the nutty and woody hints remain intact.
I hope this post brings you a little holiday cheer. If you decide to try the recipe please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be Well-Omniley
What is a celebration without a signature punch? I was in the mood for a cocktail a few days ago and ended up coming up with a Spoo-tackular drink. If you know my husband and I…you know we love a good Old Fashioned. I added pumpkin butter to my traditional Old Fashioned recipe and I also substituted apple cider for the simple sugar and this ended up being the perfect spin for a traditional fall cocktail. This drink is perfect to serve at any gathering for the fall. It would be an exciting punch to make with kids for sure. Happy Drinking-Omniley
Greetings! I made this margarita last weekend and when my husband said it was the best drink he has had next to the Blood Orange Old Fashioned with Whistlepig and Luxardo cherries from Stabs you know I had to share the recipe with you.
I’m typically a fruity and cute drink lover and he is totally the opposite. Oh but with this drink our flavor profiles finally aligned. The hints of watermelon help calm the jalapeno and tequila, oh but you still know they are there! Trust me.
We haven’t been to a restaurant for take-out or dine-in since March of this year…we have definitely been missing our fancy drinks from some of our favorite mixologists. Since we are still social distancing I will have to continue with the bar duties.
If you aren’t a fan of spicy drinks then you can ditch the jalapeños and they’re just as delicious. Cheers!
RECIPE TIPS: Use fresh watermelon
We used Triple Sec other options are Cointreau, Combier, Pierre Ferrand Curaçao, and Grand Marnier (any orange liqueur)
I’m sharing another cute hosting hack for Easter. I recommend leaving these bunnies wrapped in the foil and using as table decor until you are ready to use on Easter day or whatever day your event is being held. I want to warn you these are hollow and will melt quickly. I lost one set in the car while shopping. I recommend bringing these home immediately or placing in an ice chest in the car if you have a long ride on a hot day. This is the cutest drink and can be made kid-friendly as well. Happy Hosting.
