Traditional holiday dessert meets classic cocktail.

One of my favorite desserts this time of year is the classic pumpkin pie. Nothing beats a nice slice of this traditional sweet treat after a Thanksgiving feast, especially when it’s topped with whipped cream. Yum! Since I’m also a huge fan of martinis (all year round!), I thought about combining the delicious flavor of pumpkin pie with my favorite cocktail. Double yum! So, the Pumpkin Pie Martini was born and I’m sharing this delightful recipe with you just in time for the holidays. Cheers!
