Here’s what Katie had to say: Happy fall y’all! This is Katie of the blog, Twin Stripe, you might remember seeing my Greensboro travel guide on Feast + West in August. Today I’m honored to guest post as Susannah explores St. Louis, the city I grew up in. She asked me to make a cocktail creation, which I was a bit nervous about, since she is the queen of libations.

Pumpkin spice martini recipe

With fall officially here, the air is crisp and the leaves are starting to change. I can’t get enough fall-favored food: anything pumpkin, cinnamon or spice will do.

I love a good pumpkin spice latte and I wondered how that syrup would taste in a cocktail.

I whipped up a batch of homemade pumpkin spice syrup and created the perfect fall cocktail, the Pumpkin Spice Martini.

This drink is bursting with flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and of course pumpkin.

I highly recommend making your own pumpkin syrup, but store-bought would substitute in a pinch.

To make this cocktail, you will need:

Cinnamon sugar for the rim

Totally optional, but I recommend not skipping this step! A cinnamon sugar rim adds some extra fall flavor, sugary texture and sweet flavor to your Pumpkin Spice Martini. Plus it makes it look so professional.

To rim your glass, dip the rim of the glass in maple syrup or honey, and let any excess drip off. (Spread it around with your finger if needed!) Then roll the edge of the glass in cinnamon sugar.

Pumpkin spice syrup

Pumpkin spice syrup is very easy to make with canned pumpkin and ground spices. However, you can also buy it. Check out this Torani pumpkin sauce or this Monin pumpkin spice syrup,

Vanilla vodka

You can use any brand here, or you can make your own. I used Absolut Vanilia for mine.

Regular vodka will work too! You may want to add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract for that vanilla flavor.

Whipped cream flavored vodka or pumpkin spice vodka are both options as well.

Whipped cream

You can use store-bought whipped cream from a can or Cool Whip if you like, but to me homemade whipped cream makes a big difference.

Cocktails with pumpkin spice syrup

If you have any syrup leftover, you can make so many delicious fall drinks! Try it in a Pumpkin Spice White Russian or a Pumpkin Spice Mule, which are both vodka drinks like this martini.

Or you can mix it with whiskey to make a Pumpkin Spice Old-Fashioned.

Katie says, “I hope you enjoy my Pumpkin Spice Martini! It has become a new favorite at my house. Be sure to take a moment and sit back and enjoy the flavors of fall.”

  1. Rim the glasses. Place the cinnamon sugar on a plate. To get the cinnamon sugar to stick to the glass, dip the rim in a little vanilla vodka, then roll in the cinnamon sugar.
  2. Make the cocktail. Fill a shaker to the gill with ice, vodka and pumpkin spice simple syrup and shake vigorously. Pour into a prepared cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.


If you plan to make homemade simple syrup, be sure to factor in the extra time it takes to make and cool. Once your pumpkin spice syrup is ready to go, you can start to put the cocktail together.
