In Search of the Perfect Pumpkin Martini

I'm starting a series on the coveted pumpkin martini.   My adventure for the perfect Halloween drink started with the pumpkin martini and led to the creation of my own pumpkin liqueur.  I'll be posting a few tuning suggestions on pumpkin liqueur recipe as well.Pumpkin in martini glass

My experiments have led to three variations that have become hits. First, is the big over-the-top Sweet Pumpkin Martini (center).  Next, is the slightly toned down Classic Pumpkin Martini (right).   And last but not least, my personal favorite, the Subtle Pumpkin Martini (left).

    1.5 oz Captain Morgan
