Although you could buy pumpkin purée any time of the year, this orange fruit really shines during the fall season. And, no, we’re not just referring to pumpkin spice lattes (although those are kind of a big deal). From jack-o-lanterns to pumpkin bread, there are so many ways to use pumpkins during autumn.
Arguably, pumpkin pie “takes the cake” as the most iconic autumnal dessert. But who says you have to slave all day baking one of these pies? Believe it or not, you could whip up a boozy pumpkin pie cocktail in a matter of minutes!
Sure, this pumpkin pie martini isn’t a replacement for an actual pie, but it’s a sweet and simple way to liven up a party. Plus, since we’re adding Tribe CBD oil to this cocktail, it’s sure to calm any family drama at your next Thanksgiving!
CBD Pumpkin Pie Martini Recipe
In the pantheon of pies, pumpkin isn’t all that bad for our waistlines. In fact, many nutritionists argue pumpkin pie may be the healthiest traditional pie recipe.
Pumpkin is naturally high in many vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin A. There’s also evidence that pumpkin contains plenty of antioxidants, which may reduce the risk of long-term health conditions.
This is all good news considering one in five Americans claims they ate a whole pumpkin pie at least once in their lives. Yes, that’s a real statistic from the American Pie Council!
However, there is a big difference between homemade and store-bought pumpkin pies. If you want to treat your body right, you should make a low or no-sugar pumpkin pie at home.
Thankfully, cans of unsweetened pumpkin aren’t all that hard to find. Plus, even if you’ve never baked before, pumpkin pie is one of the easiest recipes for beginners.

One feature you may miss as you slurp your pumpkin martini is the crispy pie crust. However, there are a few fun ways you could add some of that “crunch” back into this seasonal cocktail.
For instance, you could stick crushed Graham crackers on the rim of your martini glass with either raw honey or maple syrup. Just be sure to ground these Graham crackers in a food processor until they’re fine. For extra fun, you could toss in a pinch of ground nutmeg or cinnamon to add festive flavors to this rimmed garnish.
