History

This Pumpkin Spiced Espresso Martini is an incredibly tasty concoction that was created by Jassy Davis, the author of Winter Warmers: 60 Cosy Cocktails for Autumn & Winter, as an autumnal riff on the original Espresso Martini.

Tasting Notes

The Pumpkin Spiced Espresso Martini features a prominent coffee flavor that’s perfectly balanced by hints of pumpkin and vanilla.

If Starbucks had a boozy beverages menu, this martini would be on it. We both loved this recipe and thought it was a dangerously easy sip, especially for coffee lovers. And even if you’re not a coffee drinker, it’s worth giving this delicious fall cocktail a try. While Alex loves having a daily cup of joe, Kendall usually doesn’t like anything coffee flavored, but she really liked this drink a lot. Thanks to the vanilla vodka and fabulous homemade pumpkin spice syrup, it’s nowhere close to as bitter as many coffees are.
