Pumpkin Pie Martini with Candy Eyeball Skewers

Drink recipe from Tito’s Handmade Vodka

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
  • 1 tbsp canned pumpkin pie mix (not just canned pumpkin)
  • .5 oz spiced syrup (see recipe below)

Mixing Method:

Shake all ingredients and double strain everything a martini glass. Use a 3″ fine mesh strainer. The mixture will strain slowly, so use a spoon to agitate the mixture in the strainer to speed up the process.

Spiced Syrup recipe:

In a 2 quart saucepan, add:

  • 4 cinnamon sticks (3-inch size)
  • 8 small slices of fresh ginger (skin on is fine)
  • 1/2 of a vanilla bean (split open)
  • 30 whole allspice berries
  • 20-25 whole cloves (stems on)
  • 6 whole star anise pods
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2.75 cups of water

Simmer all ingredients on low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let steep for another 2 to 3 hours. Add a little water if the mixture is too viscous (resembling thickness of honey). Strain into a glass container and store in the refrigerator until needed.

Garnish: add a spooky stare to Halloween drinks with these fun, jelly candy eyeball drink skewers from Wilton Candy. Just position a skewer across the glass and serve.
