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.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces ginger vodka
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce pumpkin puree
  • Splash of honey water (equal parts honey and water)

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  2. Strain over fresh ice into a collins glass.

  3. Garnish with a long slice of ginger.
