Pumpkin Martini Recipe

Avenue's Pumpkin MartiniFall has arrived and pumpkins are readily available and inexpensive. This year, rather than opting for the usual Pumpkin Latte, spice it up with a new cocktail from Avenue Restaurant in Long Branch, NJ. Avenue has the perfect fall Pumpkin Martini. This cocktail is ideal for chilly fall days. It combines classic liquors with nutmeg, pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree. You can also use it as a festive holiday drink. Or it can even double as a desert!
