While C&H® Turbinado Sugar is the first thing you taste on the rim of the glass, it’s the fall-tastic pumpkin flavor that reminds you what time of year it is as soon as you sip this seasonal beverage.

2 drinks
For the turbinado syrup
  • ½ cup C&H® Turbinado Sugar
  • ½ cup Water
  • ¼ teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
For the rim
  • ¼ cup C&H® Turbinado Sugar
  • ¼ cup Half and half
For the martini
  • 2 ½ ounces Vanilla vodka
  • 2 ounces Half and half
  • 1 ½ ounces turbinado syrup
  • 2 ounces Pumpkin puree
  • ¼ teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice
  • Ice

Step 1

Prepare the turbinado sugar syrup by combining sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally until all the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Allow the mixture to cool down.

Step 2

Add half-and-half to a shallow dish wider than the rim of the martini glass. Pour sugar into a small dish. Dip the rim of one glass in half-and-half. Shake the excess off. Dip the rim of the glass into the sugar. Shake excess and set aside to dry. Repeat the process with another glass.

Step 3

In a cocktail shaker, add vodka, half-and-half, turbinado syrup, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into the prepared martini glasses. Garnish with a dash of pumpkin spice and serve immediately. 

Store the leftover syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Use the syrup to sweeten other cocktails, coffee beverages or, iced tea.
