What’s the season without a little pumpkin spice? Entertain and entice your “basic” witch senses with this creamy, sweet pumpkin spice martini. Now, I already have a pumpkin dessert cocktail, called Prosperous Pumpkin, in my book WitchCraft Cocktails that I LOVE. However, for those who don’t have my book, I thought this would be a nice alternative as well as present a totally different flavor profile. With cinnamon schnapps (especially if you use Goldschlager, which has actual gold flecks in it), your choice of amaretto or hazelnut liqueur, and an optional hint of vanilla, this creamy concoction will bring in the abundance, some spirit-ual alignment and soothe your mind.
For this concoction, I used this recipe to make a pumpkin spice syrup. And if you do make this, you have the pumpkin puree on hand to put in an optional 1/4 ounce straight into the drink for a thicker texture, should you choose. Additionally, companies such as Proof Spirits offer premade syrups. Regardless, it’s worth the make as you can reuse the syrup in your daily homemade coffee or latte.
For Simple, Easy Sipping: Cocktail making can be easy! Just swap ingredients or remove as you see fit. Use the material here & the ingredient reference list towards the bottom to help guide you in your own unique concoction, and get creative in swapping ingredients you may not have. I’ll offer suggestions along the way, so don’t get daunted if you don’t have something! Just as in life, there are limitless possibilities.
Energetic Alignment: Money, Spirituality, Peace
Pumpkin Cream Martini
- 1-1.5 ounces vanilla vodka (swap with normal vodka, or simply let a vanilla bean sit in a bit of vodka for 24 hours and use that)
- 1/2 ounce almond or hazelnut liqueur
- 1/2 ounce pumpkin spice syrup
- 1/4 ounce half and half
- 1/4 ounce cinnamon liqueur (or sprinkle in ground cinnamon instead)
- (For a cinnamon rim, if desired) Sprinkle some cinnamon into a plate, and some maple syrup or other thick syrup onto another. Dip the outside lip of a martini glass in this syrup, and then swiftly dip in cinnamon all the way around for an enticing cocktail rim.
- Set your martini glass aside. In a shaker, place all ingredients. Add ice and shake, thinking of these powerful ingredients stirring together, activating, and bring in the moolah, or aligning you to abundant flow of the universe. Strain into your glass, and adorn with a magical cinnamon stick if desired.
Use the left over cinnamon from making the rim, and the cinnamon stick in your prosperity magic afterwards. You can keep the stick on you to invite in success, leave it on your altar, or use it as a mini wand for directing prosperity. You can use the ground, powdered cinnamon (just a tiny bit) as a candle dressing to invite in more prosperity and abundance. Be sure to reflect on the alignment of imbibing your magical concoction, and the correspondence of these additions in your “outside” world magical workings, symbolic of both internal and external change.
