When autumn hits and people look for a celebratory seasonal drink, many people search for a Pumpkin Martini. Here's an introduction you to a tall pumpkin drink that is quite interesting. Possibly the best part of this recipe is that you do not need to hunt down a pumpkin liqueur -- a little pumpkin puree will give you all the flavor you need.
Something we don't see in many pumpkin-flavored cocktails is ginger and it is really nice here with the fresh pumpkin. The two flavors are a natural complement and this vodka is nice and spicy. The ginger vodka grabs your attention and holds it with the complex flavor, making it a great mixer.
One thing you may like to add to this recipe is a top off of a ginger ale such as Vernor's. It really doesn't need it, but it's a nice addition if you'd like to add an extra touch of sweetness.
- 2 ounces ginger vodka
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 1 ounce pumpkin puree
- Splash of honey water (equal parts honey and water)
