Tito's Pumpkin Pie Martini (from the Tito's Handmade website)
2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka (made in Austin, Texas)
1 tbsp canned pumpkin pie (make sure not using plain canned pumpkin!)
.5 oz spiced syrup (see recipe)
Shake all ingredients and DOUBLE STRAIN into a coupe or martini glass. (Use a 3” fine mesh strainer. Mixture will strain slowly, so use a spoon to agitate the mixture in the strainer to speed up the process.) Garnish with a small amount of fresh, grated nutmeg.
Spiced Syrup recipe
In a 2qt 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 2-3 hours. Add a little water if the mixture is too viscous (resembling thickness of honey). Then, strain into a glass container and store in the refrigerator until needed.
