This Pumpkin Spice Dessert Martini is a deliciously adult way to enjoy those pumpkin pie flavors.

You will need: 2 ounces vodka 1/2 ounce spiced simple syrup 3/4 ounce half and half 1 ounce pumpkin puree 1 egg white, frothed nutmeg for garnish (optional)

If you'd like to rim your glass, dip the rim in simple syrup, then dip in cinnamon sugar mixture. Set aside.

Separate the yolk form the white. Note: the egg white adds body and the frothy top to the martini. If it makes you squeamish, skip it.

Whisk the egg whites until light and foamy. Or, dry shake until foamy.

Add the vodka to the shaker...

...then the spiced simple syrup...

...and the half and half.

Finally, add the pumpkin puree and frothed egg white, and shake over ice to combine ingredients.

Strain into a rimmed martini glass, and enjoy.
