Pumpkin Martinis

That's right, I said Pumpkin Martinis.

The Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay ,  posted this incredible pic of their latest cocktail concoction on Facebook last week, and now I am inspired.  Thinking that I might have to make a run over there this afternoon and try one for myself!  Although, it is bound to be a little stormy today...

Here's one recipe I found for you all to try.  I had no idea that there were so many ways to make a pumpkin drink.

I would love to hear your reviews, if you whip  this concoction up in your martini shaker!

Pumpkin Spice Martini 

Glass: Martini
Method: Build in shaker           
1.5 ounces ABSOLUT Vanilla                  
1 ounce Baileys Irish Cream        
½ ounce Monin Pumpkin Spice        
2 ounces half-and-half
Ground cinnamon and nutmeg for garnish

Sounds so yummy!  Will have to give this a whirl when Tom gets home from Washington DC, as I am a bachelor girl this weekend with way too much time on her hands...

Thought that our "pirate" glassware would be such a fun idea for Halloween and Fall parties!

The black-stemmed martini glasses are a new addition!

Stemless wine tumblers are great for deck parties (or if you have spill-prone guests!)
One of my favorite pieces in this whole collection! 

Have a great weekend everyone.  Please feel free to pipe up if you have a favorite pumpkin cocktail recipe that you'd like to share!
