cocktail hour {pumpkin martini}

My fabulous boss, Erin, has been hard at work designing a tablescape for a benefit at Shreve, Crump & Low, and tonight I'm attending the preview with her. Her design is gorgeous - very feminine and modern (hint: orange zebra and pearls!) and has me dreaming about Thanksgiving dinner and all things pumpkin and delicious.

pumpkin martini

- 1 oz pumpkin liqueur or pumpkin syrup, plus extra for dipping
- 2 oz vanilla vodka
- 1 oz Sylk cream liqueur
- cinnamon for rimming the glass

Dip a chilled martini glass in the pumpkin liqueur (or syrup) then place the glass rim down into the cinnamon to coat. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the vanilla vodka, cream liqueur and pumpkin liqueur (or syrup) and shake 15-20 seconds. Strain into rimmed glass and serve.
