Pumpkin Spice Martini

by James Stevenson

This holiday season ramping up there are ways to treat ourselves; without all the usual guilt. We are partnering with Smirnoff to share this simple 2 ingredient Pumpkin Spice Martini made with their non-GMO and gluten-free Smirnoff No.21 Vodka. When they approached us to make something with this re-mastered product we knew our cocktail had to keep the same traits so this entire cocktail is crafted with non-GMO and gluten-free ingredients. The best part is that Smirnoff haven’t changed the recipe at all, so it is still the same vodka we all know, and love to mix cocktails with.

We really wanted to make a Martini as that is the original vodka cocktail and as we were figuring out what flavors we could add to it we simply thought about what parties we have coming up and what would be most fitting for the occasion. With Halloween and Thanks Giving around the corner we decided to make something that was suitable for both occasions so we went with a recipe that not only represented these days but also could be consumed year round. It came together deliciously and now I can’t wait to mix these up for our guests.
