Cocktail O’ Clock: Pumpkin Spice Cake Martini
I’ll admit it: I love cake vodka! Especially Three Olives Cake Vodka, because it seriously tastes like delicious vanilla cake mix batter. Then again, as a kid I would eat raw cake batter by the spoonful, so I’m not sure what this all says about me. I’m also one of those obnoxious people who unabashedly loves fall flavors, especially anything pumpkin spice related. Since everyone is going crazy for pumpkin spice lattes once again, I figured, let’s improve this autumn trend by spiking it! Thus the Pumpkin Spice Cake Martini is born.
Pumpkin Spice Cake Martini
2 shots Three Olives Cake Vodka
1 shot pumpkin creme liqueur, such as Fulton’s Harvest or Harvest Grand
1 liberal shake of powdered cinnamon
1/8c heavy cream (or vanilla almond milk if you want to lighten it up a little bit)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the above ingredients, and shake your heart out! Pour into a martini glass and garnish with another sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, and/or pumpkin pie spice.
If you want to make this taste even more like a pumpkin spice latte, use:
1 shot cake vodka
1 shot kahlua
1 shot pumpkin creme liqueur
1 shot of Bailey’s
splash of cream!
Starbucks has got nothing on this one!
