A Sweet But Strong Martini Recipe
While we LOVE a good dessert cocktail, we don’t just want to be sipping on liquid ice cream. Dessert is dessert but a dessert cocktail should be just that.
So don’t be fooled by this RumChata Pumpkin Cheesecake Martini, it is sweet and creamy and totally delicious…but it also packs a punch.
We’ve got RumChata, of course, as the base of this martini recipe but there’s also vanilla vodka and pumpkin liquor rounding out this fall cocktail. Graham cracker crumbs line the rim to give you the texture and flavor of my favorite kind of pie crust, and of course a few on top for garnish.
One of the things I love about making RumChata cocktails is that none of them taste the same. If you want the straight flavor of RumChata, I suggest you do just that.
Drink it straight. Over ice or as is, up to you. We even add it to our coffee instead of cream on the weekends or for an easy brunch cocktail. RumChata even has “mini-chatas” that look just like those white plastic coffee creamers you get in a diner.
I will admit, we have a couple of boxes of those and sometimes it’s just the afternoon (or morning) pick me up that you need. But back to this RumChata Pumpkin Cheesecake Martini…
This martini recipe is going to be so fun for all your fall parties, you can rim the glasses ahead of time and then shake up the cocktail as you go. Or you can make a large batch of these martinis and stash them in the fridge until happy hour.
