Pumpkin Pie Martini & Mocktail

cooking with essential oils


Here’s a sneaky way to get in an extra serving of vegetables – for you or your kids! This is an adaptable drink with a pumpkin puree base. Use your favorite essential oil that you have on hand. Mix a big batch for yourself and your family, and store some in the fridge for later. Cheers!


  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pureé
  • 1 ½ oz. vodka
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 drop essential oil – Wild Orange, OnGuard, Cinnamon, Cassia or Ginger
  • Squeeze of fresh lime wedge to “brighten” the taste (optional)


Mix all the chilled ingredients in a cocktail shaker or jar with ice and shake well. Pour into a rimmed glass and enjoy.

Rim Options

  • Dip the rim of the glass in caramel sauce and then dip in gluten free cookie crumbs.
  • Maybe try our favorite – Ginger Snap crumbs.
  • Rub a lime wedge around the rim and dip into sugar or cinnamon sugar.
