About this pumpkin martini recipe
These pumpkin martinis, or pumpkin pie martinis as I like to call them, are the perfect fall adult beverage. Featuring real pumpkin puree, maple syrup and pumpkin spice, this martini recipe has all the flavors of your favorite pumpkin pie – it’s just served in a chilled martini glass! This boozy cocktail is smooth, creamy, sweet and rich with nuances of pumpkin and cinnamon. Essentially, it’s the dessert portion of Thanksgiving in a fancy glass – minus the hours of slaving away in a kitchen.
Confession: I have never been a fan of pumpkin pie. It’s a texture thing. But this pumpkin pie martini? I totally get down with and stand behind. No offense to the pie, but this pumpkin martini is just better. Just look at that graham cracker and cinnamon sugar coated rim. And the slight dusting of pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Plus, the stick of cinnamon acting as a natural stirring utensil. I swoon. Oh, and if you want to get all fancy with it, I suggest you add a huge dollop of whipped cream. Because life is made sweeter with decadent, airy-light whipped cream. Facts.
Whether you garnish your martini to the nines or sip on it plain, I know you’ll be enjoying this pumpkin spice martini recipe for many years to come!

What is a pumpkin pie martini?
A pumpkin martini, also known as a pumpkin pie martini, is the quintessential autumn adult beverage. Made with vodka, rum, pumpkin purée, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice, it’s a perfectly smooth and sip-able cocktail. With plenty of cozy fall flavors, a pumpkin martini will have you wishing it was fall all year long.
Pumpkin spice martinis are typically enjoyed for cocktail hour or as an after dinner drink or dessert.
Pumpkin martini ingredients
- Vodka – I recommend pumpkin pie rum for the most mild gourd flavor.
- Substitution: You can swap in regular vodka or flavored vodka, such as vanilla vodka or even cinnamon vodka!
- Rum – A dark spiced rum pairs best with pumpkin.
- Substitution: Try using pumpkin liqueur for even more gourd flavor.
- Half-and-Half – For a touch of decadence.
- Substitution: Feel free to use heavy cream for a richer mouthfeel or milk for a cocktail with a lighter body.
- Pumpkin Puree – You’ll need a can of 100% pure pumpkin.
- Maple Syrup – Pure maple syrup adds a beautiful touch of cozy sweetness. Make sure you use the real stuff and not the syrup made for pancakes.
- Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract lends a welcoming flavor.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – Use store bought for convenience. Or make your own pumpkin spice by combining ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg and ground cloves.
Variations: pumpkin cocktails
- Irish Cream – Up the boozy ante by swapping out the half-and-half for Irish cream liqueur.
- RumChata – My favorite way to add even more cozy flavor is to replace the half-and-half and rum with RumChata. It’s sweet and creamy in taste, similar to Bailey’s Irish Cream. However, it’s flavor is distinguished with notes of warming cinnamon. but distinguished by the cinnamon notes
- Sweet pumpkin martini – If you prefer a sweeter martini, swap out the plain pumpkin puree for pumpkin pie filling, which includes both a sweetener and spices.
- Chocolate pumpkin martini – Swap out the half-and-half for white chocolate or regular chocolate liqueur.
Tips for the best recipe for pumpkin martini
Follow the simple tips and tricks below to ensure your homemade martini is the ultimate!
- Stir in cream. When mixing this martini together, add the half and half last. The fat from the half and half may bind to your ice cubes, causing the cream to separate. Because of this, I recommend shaking together the pumpkin spice martini, and then stirring or swirling in the cream into the cocktail mixture.
- Make it to taste. Everyone’s tastebuds are different, so I highly recommend making your martini to your taste. Swap out ingredients, go wild with the pumpkin spice, get creative and make the alcoholic pumpkin drink of your dreams.
- Strain for a smooth martini. For the smoothest pumpkin martini, I recommend straining the martini into your glass.
- Decorate the rim before chilling the glass. Dip the rim in maple syrup then into the decorative graham cracker crumbs before chilling the glass.
Storing pumpkin spice martini
Unfortunately, this pumpkin martini does not store well; therefore, I recommend enjoying your cocktail immediately. However, if you need to store your drink, it will hold well for a couple hours in the refrigerator. Make sure you remove any ice before storing and shake the cocktail before serving.
So whether or not it’s Monday and you like or loath pumpkin pie, you need to shake together this pumpkin pie martini. The season calls for it and you, my friend, deserve it! 😉
Until next time, cheers!
*Disclosure: I received free bottles of various flavored Vodka from my friends over at Pearl for my own personal tasting. I loved their new flavors of Vodka so much I freely chose to develop a drink with their Pumpkin Spice Vodka.

How to make a Pumpkin Pie Martini step-by-step recipe and video👇
Pumpkin Pie Martini
- Cocktail Shaker
- Martini Glass
- 3 Ice Cubes
- 2 ounces Pumpkin Spice Vodka (substitution: regular or vanilla vodka)
- 1 ounces Dark Rum (substitution: Rum Chata)
- 2 TBS Pumpkin Puree (canned or homemade)
- 1 ounces Maple Syrup
- ¼ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- Optional Pinch Pumpkin Pie Spice
- ½ ounces Half and Half (substitution: Irish Cream)
- Maple Syrup - to taste
- 1 whole Graham Cracker
- 1/4 tsp EACH: Pumpkin Pie Spice & Ground Cinnamon
- 1 TBS Granulated Sugar
Optional Martini Garnishes:
- Whipped Cream - to taste
- Pumpkin Pie Spice - to taste
- Cinnamon Stick - to taste
- Prepare the Martini Glass Rim: Crush graham cracker in a resealable bag, or food processor, until it resembles sand. Stir in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon and sugar. Dip the rim of a martini glass into maple syrup, then roll the rim in the graham cracker mix. Set the glass aside. (Trick: I dip a thick napkin into the maple syrup and use the napkin to neatly apply the syrup to the rim of the glass.)
- Prepare the Martini: In a cocktail shaker, combine the ice with the vodka, rum, pumpkin, maple syrup and vanilla, along with the pumpkin spice if using. Shake vigorously until shaker chilled to the touch. Add in the cream and swirl or stir to combine.
- Serve: Strain and pour cocktail into the prepared martini glass. Garnish with cinnamon stick, dollop with whipped cream and sprinkle with pumpkin spice and/or nutmeg. Enjoy!

Did you make this pumpkin spice martini? Amazing! I’d love it if you leave a review!
I’ve tried a few pumpkin martinis and this recipe is definitely the best! It’s thick, creamy and super yummy. Makes the perfect fall dessert! Thank you for sharing such an awesome recipe!
This may be a bit strong for some, but you can half the vodka.
I used regular vodka and pumpkin pie spice, which turned out nice.
What a martini 🙂 Simple and easy recipe 🙂 Thanks for sharing the nice recipe.
Vegas bomb says
Nice cocktail recipe. One of my favorite drinks.
Loved it! I used plain vodka instead of pumpkin spice vodka, and I used fresh pumpkin spice instead of nutmeg to garnish it. I also used the bourbon maple syrup in had purchased from costco. This was an AMAZING martini!
Diana Doyle says
Followed pretty much the general recipe, such as ingredient quantity. I did have to make my own pumpkin pie spice vodka and that could be why I needed to decrease the amount to 1/2 ounce and substitute plain vodka for the rest. I used spiced rum for dark rum and nixed the vanilla. After the first one, I wanted more pumpkin so I added 1/2 tbsp. Also, this was to sweet (for me) so I cut the maple syrup in half and…this is very special and for my husband and me to have a very personal scaled back thanksgiving, who needs all the fixings? Truth be told, I do miss the dressing but I don’t think that would work in a cocktail.
Homemade pumpkin pie spice vodka sounds amazing!! I’m thrilled you made the cocktail to you specific taste! Your substitutions and alterations sound delicious! I hope you and your husband had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Cheers to you and a beautiful holiday season!
Mr. Mom says
Wow, a ton of supportive comments from this therapy network…but has anyone tried this martini yet other than the publisher?
I was looking for a drink for Thanksgiving and was going to test it out on the wives tonight.
But as a guy, reading the comments I think I just got my period. Women – help her by saying – I made this and it is wonderful or – I would change…X.
Or like most recipe site – change the recipe and leave less than 4 stars based on the changes you made before trying the original recipe.
I will try making this tonight for the wives – and try to leave a helpful review tomorrow. May be then..this world will be whole again.
Cheyanne Bany says
Hi Mr. Mom,
While I appreciate your comment, I unfortunately can not force people to leave a comment after they have made a recipe of mine. A few people have made this recipe with success and tagged me on Instagram. If you tried it out on your “wives”, I hope it went over well! Cheers and thank you for stopping by.
Nicole @ Foodie Loves Fitness says
Pumpkin vodka is a thing?! I’ll have to look out for that! I’m a sucker for a yummy seasonal martini, and this looks delicious. And your video is adorable too!
Cheyanne Bany says
Hi Nicole! Pumpkin vodka is definitely a thing, however these days it seems like everything is pumpkin spiced! I even saw pumpkin spice cough drops the other day… which is taking it a bit too far if u ask me. 😉 If you can’t find pumpkin vodka, you can certainly substitute plain vodka. Cheers and thank you so much for stopping by!
Stacey @ The Sugar Coated Cotted says
Super yum! Thats the perfect drink for this week! I love the video, I need to stop being nervous and just start video recording! Take care.
Jennifer @ Seasons and Suppers says
I can’t believe I missed this one earlier this week! I want. Will be making some of these up this weekend 🙂
heather (delicious not gorgeous) says

Natasha @ Salt & Lavender says
Damn, this looks good (and pssst I’m not even that into pumpkin). Love the photos and video! Cheers!!
Ben | Havocinthekitchen says
Wow! Almost two years have passed (I refuse to believe this, though), and these fancy pumpkin martinis look even better now (Or that’s just me – while getting older, I’ve started to love more and more things where alcohol is involved hah). That’s sad you’ve used vodka in here (cause I cannot stand it). Clearly, I’ve got to find an alternative to enjoy a pumpkin pie in a glass:) Cheers!
Ben | Havocinthekitchen says
You’ve changed the profile photo, Chey. I totally didn’t recognize you without the hat haha.
Woo Woo another video recipe. You are out doing yourself Cheyanne 🙂 I’ve never had a pumpkin pie martini, but I’ve never meet a martini I don’t like. Loving the gram cracker, cinnamon and sugar rims.
Keri | Fashionable Foods says
What a beautiful martini, Cheyanne! I’m SO happy you decided to repost this one cuz I need this martini in my life ASAP. I’m imagining myself sipping on this all season long. I’m not even a big pumpkin person, but this just looks so dang tasty! Cheers!
[email protected] says
Nothing but YUM here! And you are killing it with the videos, my friend! Keep ’em coming!! Cheers! xo
Kelsie | the itsy-bitsy kitchen says
LOVELOVELOVE the video, Chey! And I love the idea of Martini Monday. I’m totally willing to help make that a thing, especially if that means drinking a pumpkin pie martini or two :). Full disclosure: pumpkin pie isn’t my favorite either. Give me pumpkin bread any day. But I can see myself falling a little in love with pumpkin pie in martini form. Have a great week!
Dawn - Girl Heart Food says
Hey girl! What a delicious recipe! And that video? AWESOME! Love it! Is it Thirsty Thursday yet?? Have a wonderful week, girlie! XOXO
Mary Ann | The Beach House Kitchen says
I remember this one Chey! And what a tasty one it is. So perfect for the fall and winter seasons. The ultimate signature cocktail for Thanksgiving too! You are killing it with the recipe videos!! (I would expect no less!) I need you to come light a fire under my you know what and get me moving on some myself! In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy a few of these yummy fall cocktails…mmm k?! Cheers to an awesome week Chey!
Ugh, those days ! Yep, those are no good! I certainly think this pretty martini would turn a bad day around!
Kate @ Framed Cooks says
First all all, this is the most genius use of pumpkin I have ever seen! Second of all, I hope that knowing you bring so many smiles to SO many people – including me – that you find yourself smiling too. You are a true ray of sunshine! xoxo
Beeta @ Mon Petit Four says
I absolutely love this!! I was just talking to my mom about what our Thanksgiving cocktail should be this year, and this looks like an awesome choice! I’m not a big fan of pumpkin pie either, but I love pumpkin pie flavors, so this is right up my alley. Plus, it’s absolutely gorgeous!! I love the way you styled it, from the sugar-coated rim to the cinnamon stick, wood base it’s on, and pumpkins in the background…everything is just spot on! Absolutely stunning! I hope your week starts to look up pretty girl – stay positive! XO
Vicky & Ruth- May I Have That Recipe says
Wow! This looks delicious! I have never had a pumpkin martini before but sounds perfect for this time of year! I love anything with pumpkin..i think i am going to go make one now 🙂
I could totally see myself having one of these on a bad day. Or…more than one. 🙂 To complete the picture of trying to cheer myself up, though, I also see myself doing an embarrassing little dance and singing bad 80s pop songs. Like anything by Wham. I hope that’s all right. Haha. I can’t wait to try this. It looks fantastic!
Kelley @ Chef Savvy says
Wow this martini looks fantastic! Dessert in a glass! Can’t wait to try this!
I’ve never been a huge pumpkin pie person either … I’d much rather drink it! This cocktail is so so fun! I hope you are having a better weekend?!? I feel you – things have just been too nuts lately and it feels like it’s one thing after another keeps coming up!
Katalina @ Peas & Peonies says
oh yes girlfriends, I should’ve expected that you will me make drink and eat my pie! This sounds amazing and its gorgeous!
I am so sorry you’re having a rough time, girl. Hopefully the sunshine will return to lift the dark clouds away soon. It’s been a rough week here with two sick kiddos so I think we both totally need a few glasses of this pumpkin pie martini! It’s just beautiful and your photos are stunning! *hugs*
Ashley | The Recipe Rebel says
Ugh, YES. I mean, I am home with 2 kids under 4 the majority of my time, so my having a good day depends a lot on them having a good day and they are totally unpredictable! This is the perfect thing to sit down to after they’re tucked in bed 🙂
Manali @ CookWithManali says
sorry you are heaving rough days dear! But this look like the perfect drink to cheer you up 🙂 It’s gorgeous and lovely pictures! xoxo
Michele @ Two Raspberries says
this looks delicious! and what a perfect drink for the weekend too! yumm 😉
Marsha | Marsha's Baking Addiction says
Now this is my kind of martini! This looks absolutely delicious! A perfect autumn drink!
Cheers! I feel like getting drunk tonight! 🙂
karrie @ Tasty Ever After says
Yes to cocktails and especially yes to this martini! Vodka martinis are my favorite and I am not a big fan of pumpkin pie either so I will be substituting this martini(s) for the pie. Yay!! BTW, your photos are beautiful, girl. Cheers to brighter days, my friend 🙂 xoxo
traci | vanilla and bean says
Bad days suck, Cheyanne! I’m sorry your feeling yucky, especially with all the holiday stuff approaching. Sometimes when I get down, I have to watch a funny movie or go out with friends or on a date night and drink, yeah, drink a sipper (except I’d guzzle this!) like you’ve developed here. ((hugs)) my friend.
I love what you’ve created here with that delicious booze! This sounds like something I would love to try, given my pumpkin cravings of late! Thank you for this, Cheyanne! I love it!
[email protected]'s Recipes says
You have me crave a martini now, Cheyanne. Wonderful fall flavour and gorgeous clicks.
Stacey @ The Sugar Coated Cotted says
I know how those string of bad days feel, whether its a person, work, bad luck or all of the above it’s no fun! I’m loving this cocktail and I have to admit it definitely looks more yummy that traditional pumpkin pie and I bet it’s a lot more fun! Take care.
Jen | Baked by an Introvert says
A drinkable pumpkin pie that will get me tipsy? Count me in! This martini will bring sunshine to anyone’s funky mood!
[email protected] says
I love anything pumpkin pie and if there’s booze involved then you can count me in!
Have a great weekend my friend!
Shashi at RunninSrilankan says
Someone is always telling me that I should just “Fake it till I make it” so I guess if we were to apply it to the funk – well I guess you should fake the funk till you make the funk?? Oh good gosh, that just sounds dastardly…so much better to just make this “boozy, bodacious pumpkin pie” in a martini glass!
Last night I watched an episode of The Great British Bake Off where one of the contestants’ made “Mudslide Cocktail Doughnuts” – where not only the donuts were boozy, but he stuck a straw in each donut and filled the straw with a small sip of a mudslide – the reason I am ranting on about this is because you should have seen the look on Judge Mary Berry’s Face when she took a sip of it – it was of absolute delight! And, her look is what my look is as I laid eyes on your pumpkin pie martini!
Hope the funk leaves you alone soon dear!
allie @ Through Her Looking Glass says
Oh my word Shashi. You make me laugh. I am needing that mudslide donut. That and Cheyanne’s Pumpkin Pie Martini. Together. That’ll pull us all out of the funk junk for sure. xo
What a gorgeous drink. Yes, please! Cheers!
Kathryn Doherty says
You know my obsession with all things pumpkin but shhh, I don’t like pumpkin pie either! However, I’m all about a cocktail and this martini sounds amazing!! How do I not have pumpkin vodka already? Hmm, headed to the liquor store today (we’re out of bourbon – oh the horror!) so I will definitely be picking some up – how fun! This will put a smile on my face no matter the day. Pinned and yummed. Whoop!
In other news, it’s Friday. So funk be banished! Funk-free Fridays for everyone! But really, I’m sorry it’s been a rough few days. Definitely been there. Sending lots of happy thoughts your way and wishes for a relaxing, stress-free weekend. XXOO
Anu-My Ginger Garlic Kitchen says
What an incredible use of pumpkin, Cheyanne. Oh yeah, I also have those rough days. This martini would make up my day for sure. AWESOME.
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop says
This drink would make me all warm and cozy…kind of like a fuzzy blanket! Sometimes you just need to take time to take a deep breath and take time for you….and a little martini!
Sometimes the world totally conspires against me. And then I just get all sad and watch lots of Netflix. It’s a good coping technique, and I recommend!
This DOES look better than pie. And it takes a lot for me to say that, but this would certainly make my brain happier. It’s so pretty!
Claudia | The Brick kitchen says
I feel like this martini could make pretty much anyone’s day a whole lot better – love how you have used maple syrup too for that true autumnal flavour. Those days were everything that could go wrong seems to go wrong, and everything seems to rub the wrong way, and it is all too busy and you kind of just want to yell STOP TIME OUT but you can’t? I feel you – and I hope you can shake the funk and feel heaps better soon!! xx
Oh I’m sorry love that it’s been a few tough weeks. I’m sadly going through a rough patch at work and trying to keep my head up. This martini could make those long days well forgotten. I love the spices, dark rum and graham crackers in there.
Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom says
Cheyanne, I hear you girl. . and i’m sorry. . I hope you can shake the funk off soon. . tomorrow is a new day. . whatever it is, focus on the positives . . and until then, maybe more martinis? This pumpkin pie martini is BRILLIANT!!! I love this! so festive and looks so delicious!!! HUGS!
Geraldine | Green Valley Kitchen says
What an inspired use of pumpkin, Cheyanne. The best part of down days are when they are over! Tomorrow will be better – especially if you’re having one of this martini!
Allie | Baking a Moment says
I am so sorry you’re having a rough time! This time of year can really be a bear. But a pumpkin pie martini sounds like a perfect way to shake it off! The pics are gorgeous and it sounds so delish!
My Dish is Bomb says
Hope your week picks up! Bad days…months…years…we all have them and that’s what martinis are for, right?! Love this flavour, I definitely am trying to up my cocktail game at home so I’d love this! Pinned!
Oh yeah, I have those days and sometimes days do turn into a few, but luckily they do get better! I hope you shake this thing soon. 🙂 Next time I need shake off a bad day I’ll shake up one of these martini’s — they look like the perfect thing to perk up a mood, and they’re so pretty!
allie @ Through Her Looking Glass says
One day, my dear, you and I will sit on a veranda overlooking the sea or mountains, doesn’t really matter which….and suck down this delicious Pumpkin Pie Martini with utter abandon. And THEN. We will laugh and chat and have a fabulous day to make up for all the stinky ones we get. Yup. that’s what we’re doing. Put it on the calendar girlfriend. Next time I’m in NC I’ll look you up and we’ll make it a reality. Or you could always come to New Hamp. Last time I was in NC this past summer things got a little hairy shall we say….http://www.throughherlookingglass.com/?p=10165 I do believe it may amuse you and cheer you to read what I was doing (or not doing) in your NC backwoods. Spending a little too much time with the deer, dear. XOXO
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says
It’s that time of the year to be in a funk! But this pumpkin pie martini will hopefully make you feel just a little bit better. I absolutely LOVE this, Cheyanne! What a great drink for the holidays! Pinned!
Meghan | Fox and Briar says
Yaaas. This looks so amazing. I’m sorry you have been having a rough week. I am totally having a funky day/week so feel you. Maybe it’s like the phase of the moon or something. Are we in a Saturn return? Is Mercury in retrograde? I don’t know…. Either way, one or two of these might help with the funk. Cheers to you lady!
Julie @ Julie's Eats & Treats says
I would love to be enjoying one of these right now because it’s 5:00 somewhere right?
Ben Maclain says
Wow! What a fancy (read peculiar) combo! I mean who could ever successfully combine pumpkin and rum? Only Chey! Should we anticipate from you pumpkin pie bourbon now?:)
Thao @ In Good Flavor says
Oh my goodness! I have to try this! It is the perfect drink when you need to shake the funk, or for Thanksgiving, or (synonymously) with being stuck in the houseful of bickering in-laws. 😉 Pinning!
Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry says
There is no doubt in my mind, I would get very very drunk off this martini’s..haha
Oh, that sounds delicious and looks so preeeeeety!! Can’t wait to try! Make one of these drinks, throw on some old school dance music and I’m sure you’ll feel better ;)!
All That I'm Eating says
This is probably the most autumnal drink I’ve ever seen! Sounds delicious.
I will pour you myself the cocktails until you feel better!! we all go through lots of bad days! Come on Chey shake that off! Virtual hugs and martinis
Liz @ Floating Kitchen says
Fake it until you make it, right? Sorry you’re in a funk. I feel you. Happens to me all the time. Especially this time of year. It’s all rainy and dark today and I’m grumpy. I need a cocktail!
I can definitely relate, yay! I’ve been having some of those days lately! Sorry to hear you’ve been having bad days, too! I wake up fine and then things turn around and then you know…. Bad day!
I think it is time to make a martini! This looks gorgeous!
[email protected] says
Well, that’s no fun… sorry for the string of bad days, my friend. When a rut hits my life I always turn to nature, long walks with hubby or a good book. Thanks for creating just one more pretty and delicious ‘strategy’ for helping with a hurdle. Hugs! xo
Mary Ann | The Beach House Kitchen says
I hate bad days too Cheyanne, and unfortunately they happen to the best of us! When I’m having a bad day I grab my dog Tucker, plop myself on the couch, turn on the TV, put my feet up and relax for a while. Tucker honestly makes everything better!! He knows when I’m stressed and always helps me out of my funk. I’m thinking this pumpkin pie martini would also be a big help! I have never been a huge pumpkin pie fan either. My mom always made a pumpkin chiffon pie when I was growing up, and that I like. I LOVE the graham cracker-cinnamon sugar along the rim of your glass and the little sprinkle of nutmeg. This sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving cocktail! Well done friend! Hope your weekend gets better! XO
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy says
I have no doubt that this pumpkin pie martini would make any bad day instantly better. I just realised that it isn’t Friday, but Thursday and I am very sad about that. So, I think I need to make myself one of these to cheer me up.
