Pumpkin Martinis

I’m not much of a mixologist, but I was inspired to tend bar after seeing Erin’s recipe for pumpkin spice latte martinis – what a great idea, I didn’t even know pumpkin liqueur existed! When POM Wonderful recently offered to send samples of their new iced coffees, I immediately thought about Erin’s creation and knew I wanted to try their iced coffee in a pumpkin martini of my own! We received samples of Café au Lait and Chocolate flavors, and the Chocolate flavor was ok, but the Café au Lait was delicious. I mixed the iced coffee with pumpkin liqueur, vodka, and butterscotch schnapps this weekend and was pleasantly surprised about well the drinks turned out! They were so yummy, in fact, that I couldn’t stop at just one… Thanks to Erin for the inspiration and to POM Wonderful for the Café au Lait Iced Coffee!

  1. Pumpkin liqueur, butterscotch schnapps, and POM iced coffee??!! Oh my goodness, how did I not know that such glorious delights existed! I am in raptures, just imagining the flavors…

  2. YOU ARE MY HERO with this drink. You can bet your last dollar I am going to the local liquor store to find this liqueur!! Itll be the hit of Thanksgiving!

  3. I’m not generally much of a mixologist myself although that drink looks and sounds delicious. If you like mixed drinks by the way I highly recommend Barbara Lynch’s Drink in Southie. It’s pretty fantastic.

  4. Genius! Pure genius! I, too, have those POM Iced Coffee samples and I’m ashamed to say, I haven’t tried them yet :( They look good and people seem to like them but I wanted to make something with them versus just drinking them straight out of the bottle. Great idea! You are so creative! I love it. We should drink these at our neighborhood block party 😉

  5. Pumpkin liqeur sounds dangerous. Only because I would be compelled to drink all of it in one sitting! what a great martini. (And so much cheaper than the 8-13 dollars it would cost in a bar!!)

  6. Wow, Kerstin! you have outdone yourself with this one. And with POMx coffee, too! AND pumpkin! I’m not much into alcohol, but you’re gonna turn me into a drunk with this one!

  7. Thanks everyone! I’m enjoying one of these right now :)

    Monica – I found it in the first large liquor store we went to by the schnapps. The brand they had was Hiram Walker and the bottle says it’s a special seasonal flavor.

    Nicole – Yes, for sure :)

  8. Oooooh! I love your twist on this! It sounds so good! And… my friend who is a buyer/manager at a liquor said he has heard that they might stop producing the Starbucks liqueur. So it’s nice to know you can still make a tasty drink with other ingredients!
