Making this Pumpkin Pie Martini is nice and easy! You will need to use a cocktail shaker for this delicious recipe.

Step 2

Dunk the rim of the martini glass into the simple syrup.

Step 3

Immediately swirl the rim of glass in graham cracker dust

Prepare the Martini Glass Rim: Crush graham crackers in a resealable bag, or food processor for a larger batch. The consistency at completion should resemble sand. You will need to use two plates, one will hold the simple syrup, and the second is for the graham cracker dust. Now, simply dip the rim into the simple syrup, then into the graham cracker crumbs that are spread out evenly on the plate. The graham cracker should stick easily with the simple syrup. Set the glass aside for now.
