pumpkin martini's... re post from sf board
rworange posted a query about pumpkin martini's on the sf board.. (hope you don't mind rworange.. thought it was worth sharing here) I guess they serve them at maggiano's.
the article included a recipe. I thought I'd re-post here... and they sounded pretty darn good. if one can find the pumpkin liqueur. I'm going to check my local this weekend.
here is rworange's OP
and the recipe:
The Pumpkin Martini
Recipe adapted from Maggiano's Little Italy restaurant.
3 ounces Bols Pumpkin Smash liqueur
1 ounce Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
1 dash half-and-half
Ground cinnamon, for garnish
Thanks so much for posting this on Home Cooking. I was going to do the same thing with Robert's suggestion which is
Seed, peel, and dice a pumpkin, put the dice in a jar, and cover with vodka. Let sit for two months, strain, chill. Serve in a gimlet class with a drop of dry vermouth.
Robert, I love you. One of the few cooking accomplishments I have is marinating stuff in alcohol. I can do this and it seems to resolve what to do with a Jack o Lantern.
a friend and I were chatting about this... she came up withe an idea to use egg nog instead of half and half.... I think that warrants further investigation.
I can't wait to try one of these... they do sound like dessert, or at least like something you wouldn't drink all evening long.
Isn't this more like pumpkin eggnog minus the egg? Certainly not a martini, just served in a martini glass.
I didn't think bols made the pumpkin liqeur???
If they still do, let me know because I've been looking everywhere.
