Irresistible Creamy Thanksgiving Martini Recipe

Your first thought of a vodka martini might not be a milkshake-like creamy one, but we’re all about defying expectations in the name of delicious drinks. These are a filling, almost dessert-like cocktail recipe you can rely on for pairing with any of your Thanksgiving dishes.

Now, you’re probably wondering (reasonably so), how candy corn fits into things. Well, believe it or not it’s not just a candy reserved for Halloween!

How to Serve up These Cocktails in Style

These creamy martinis are a tad bit more full bodied than the vodka cocktails you’re probably used to. That being said, they’re not ideal for kicking off your evening before you’ve eaten. Personally, I think these go great with dessert! They can easily compliment any number of dishes. The pumpkin pie spice, combined with the creamy liqueurs are perfect for pumpkin pie, custards or cakes!

These cocktails can be great for their presentation value! If you want these martinis to hit the table in style, take a look at your glassware. Try a classic coupe martini glass for a distinguished look that works well with the heavy texture of this cocktail.

Topping Suggestions to Make it Extra Sweet

Who doesn’t love a little extra sweet in their life? These cocktails go great with a variety of toppings, and a few you might not have thought of! If you can find any white chocolate, use a parry knife or cheese grater to create shaved pieces to top your drink.

A caramel drizzle or chocolate drizzle would also add a nice touch, serving as both a flavor and garnish! After mixing all of the ingredients in the shaker and dispensing, simply drizzle the syrup over the glass. Even allowing some to go over the rim adds a nice little touch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 part vanilla vodka
  • 1 part Kahlua
  • 1 part Irish Creme
  • A dash of pumpkin pie spice
  • Candy Corns
