Food Friday: Pumpkin Pie Martini

Cary, NC – In part two of our first ever Food Friday, we have this recipe for a Pumpkin Pie Martini.

Frank Page, the founder of Cary, may have been a teetotaler, but longtime CaryCitizen readers will know that we are fans of mixology. Who could forget our recipe for a Champagne & Moonshine Cocktail?

Today’s cocktail recipe for a Pumpkin Pie Martini caught our attention, both for its seasonal flair and its creativity. It’s from Joanne Dagostino Hendrickson, food and beverage manager of Reflect Restaurant and Bar at the Cambria Suites hotel over by RDU.  She even sent a picture.

Looks pretty good!
