Holy Pumpkin Martinis, Batman

Upon request . . . .

(Courtesy of Sandra Lee, Semi-Homemade Goddess)

¾ cup spiced rum (Sandra used Captain Morgan; I, too, used Captain Morgan)
¼ cup pumpkin spice cream (Sandra used Coffee-Mate; I used the functional equivalent from Aldi)
2 T canned pumpkin (Sandra used Libby’s; I, too, used Libby’s)
¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice (Sandra failed to express a brand preference; I omitted entirely)

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add rum, pumpkin spice cream and pumpkin. Shake with ice until well-blended, and strain into 2 glasses. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice. DO NOT let go of the strainer lid while shaking, causing a large quantity of precious pumpkin martini mixture to gush onto your hardwood floor, making things all sticky AND WASTING A LARGE QUANTITY OF PRECIOUS PUMPKIN MARTINI MIXTURE. Sorry – that last part was my addition.

I omitted the pumpkin pie spice garnish, on account of how I made these in mass quantities (one shaker’s worth at a time) and served them in a pitcher. Because that’s just how I roll. And how my friends drink.
