Pumpkin vodka (to be made at least a week ahead of time)

  • 1 750ml bottle of decent vodka
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 teaspoons each of the following spices:
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • ginger
  • allspice
  • cloves

Remaining ingredients

  • 1 pint Stonyfield Farms organic vanilla chai ice cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon caramel


  1. First step is to combine the vodka, pumpkin, vanilla bean, and spices and let sit in a cool, dark place for at least a week. Be sure to shake it well when you’re ready to use it. If you plan to use it in other unblended drinks you’ll probably want to strain it.
  2. Combine pumpkin vodka, ice cream, milk and caramel in the blender. Blend until smooth and serve in a chilled martini glass.

NOTE: As an added kick you can also try putting some cinnamon schnapps, such as
Goldschlager, or some spiced rum into the mix as well.
