Pumpkin Pie Martinis

Pumpkin Pie Martinis bloglifted, haven't tried yet
2 parts Absolut Vanilla vodka
1 part pumpkin schnapps
Splash of cream
Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a martini glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg and garnish with a cherry

1.25 oz. Vanilla Vodka
1.25 oz. Pumpkin Smash (if you can find it)
.5 oz. Milk
1 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Mix in vanilla vodka, pumpkin smash, milk and ice in a martini shaker
2.) Shake well
3.) Mix sugar and cinnamon together and add to rim of martini glass
4.) Strain into the martini glass rimmed with the cinnamon and sugar mixture

or (my personal fave) bloglifted
1 cup Libby's Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix
1 cup half-and-half

3/4 cup half & half
1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon molasses
2 ounces spiced rum, plus a little extra
A pinch of nutmeg
In a blender, puree the pumpkin pie mix together with half-and-half. One cocktail uses 2 ounces of the pumpkin mixture; the rest can be reserved in the refrigerator. Spread the brown sugar out on a saucer. Dampen the rim of a martini glass with a little rum and then coat the rim in brown sugar. Drizzle molasses in glass. Set aside. In a cocktail shaker, combine 2 ounces pumpkin pie base, 2 ounces spiced rum and ice. Shake until well-chilled and then strain into the prepared martini glass. Sprinkle with a little nutmeg and serve. *i've also been known to bake up sweetened (sometimes just sugar, sometimes cinnamon and sugar) strips of pie crust to serve alongside this*not a pumpkin pie martini, but still very yummy
