A Pumpkin Martini is a creamy and flavorful drink! This is an ideal cocktail for impressing your friends at your party. Also great for any Fall time activities or parties!

How to prepare the rim: Crush gram crackers into your hand and place on a plate. On a different plate, add a small pool of maple syrup.
