As the weather starts to cool down and the days get shorter, we’re falling for crisp cocktails that’ll warm our spirits. Check out these spectacular spiced sippers from the good folks at Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
Pumpkin Pie Martini
Tito’s colorful Pumpkin Pie Martini is far beyond basic, but still easy as pie. Just remember to double strain for a silky, smooth texture.
2 ounces Tito’s Handmade Vodka
1/2 ounce half & half
1 tablespoon canned pumpkin pie mix (make sure it’s canned pumpkin pie mix, and not just canned pumpkin)
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 dash cinnamon
Directions Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and double strain into a graham-cracker-rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a small amount of freshly grated nutmeg.
Tito’s Lucky Apple
Your luck will never run out with this winning combination of apple, ginger and lime.
1 1/2 ounces Tito’s Handmade Vodka
2 ounces cloudy apple juice
1/2 ounce ginger syrup
1/2 ounce lime juice
4 ginger slices, muddled
Directions Muddle ginger slices in a shaker. Add remaining ingredients and ice. Shake and strain into a glass over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange/lime twist.
