INSTRUCTIONS

Pumpkin purée:

  • Cut a pumpkin into small pieces and put them in the oven at 160°C for 30 minutes, then add pumpkin pie spice to taste.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool. Then remove the skin and insert the peeled pieces into a food processor until obtaining a smooth consistency.

Cocktail:

  • After preparing the pumpkin purée, mix it with single cream in a milk frother or manually, to obtain a soft cream.
  • Prepare a Martini glass by wetting the edges with water. Mix cinnamon and brown sugar on a flat plate, and twist the glass edges in it.
  • Insert the vodka, rum, coffee liqueur, espresso shot and pumpkin syrup into a cocktail shaker, and stir to combine.
  • Add ice, pumpkin cream, sugar and cinnamon to taste. Shake all the ingredients together.
  • Pour it into the Martini glass and it’s ready to drink!
