Friday Night Cocktail {2}

"Friday Night Cocktail" is a blog feature that we have here once a week to highlight a new cocktail! Each week we'll share a new cocktail recipe and some of our brief thoughts about it!

In honor of November and the fall season, this week's Friday Night Cocktail is...

Pumpkin Martini
(from the recipe found HERE)

3 oz Snow Queen vodka
1.5 oz Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice Schnapps
Splash of simple syrup (using our easy method!)
Black sugar for the glass rim

  1. (Optional) Use colored sugar on the rim of your martini glass.
  2. Simple! Shake and serve!
Some thoughts on this recipe...
  • The original recipe actually called for a 3-to-1 ratio, but we upped the pumpkin to 1.5 oz.  This was still a VERY boozy cocktail. A different recipe (on the bottle) called for a 1-to-1 ratio.  I would probably recommend at least a 2-to-1 ratio instead of the original.
  • I, personally, like the sugar rim as it helped with the "booziness" of the drink.  We also added a cinnamon stick which added a little spice to the drink--DEFINITELY recommended. :-)

Be sure to check back next week! We'll be making a S'mores martini or another pumpkin drink...
