How to make a pumpkin martini?
This recipe is super simple and really only takes a few steps. First, grab a cocktail glass and set it in your freezer while you prep everything else.
Next, add the Bailey’s pumpkin liquor, Frangelico, vodka, and half and half to a shaker cup. That’s right, simply pour everything in together.
Then, seal the cocktail shaker and gently shake the liqueurs. In case you were wondering, you can also stir everything together, if you prefer.
Last, pour the pumpkin martini into the chilled glass. All that’s left to do is enjoy your drink. Kim and I hope you like the cocktail and wish you all the best 🙂
How to rim a glass with sugar?
If you want to decorate your drink, then you’ll need to chill the martini glass. Also, you need a small saucer of decorating sugar.
Give the glass a few minutes in your freezer then pull it out, dab Frangelico around the rim, and dip it into the sugar.

- 1 Ounce Vodka
- 1 Ounce Half and Half, (or heavy cream)
- Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Swirl gently to combine. Pour into the chilled martini glass, and serve.
- **Optional** Dip the rim of a chilled martini glass into Frangelico and then into decorating sugar. Set aside.
*The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients and a serving size of one (1) six (6) ounce pumpkin martini. Additionally, the calorie count does NOT include the decorative sugar on the martini glass.
*We've been asked why we left out the part about adding ice to the shaker in order to make the martini cold. Ice is not recommended for this particular recipe. Instead, we recommend using cold half and half, cold Bailey's (if possible), and a chilled glass. Adding ice to the shaker cup then shaking or even swirling the drink too vigorously can cause the fat from the cream based drinks to separate. The fat is the little pieces of white that sticks to the ice. This results in a separated drink and changes the flavor and texture. If you'd like to use ice, please do so with caution.
