Pumpkin Pie Liqueur
Place the 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar in a saucepan over med-high heat and bring to a boil while whisking.
Add 1 cup pumpkin puree, 3 cinnamon sticks, 1/2 tbsp ground cloves, and 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tsp extract) and turn down the heat. Simmer, whisking occasionally, for 30 minutes.
Remove the mixture from the heat, stir in 1.5 cups rum, and allow the mixture to cool for about an hour.
Pour the liqueur into a sealable bottle or jar. Store the Pumpkin Pie liqueur in a cool location for 2-3 days to allow the flavors to all blend.
Pumpkin Spice Rim Garnish and Glass Prep
Place a few graham crackers in a plastic bag and crush into small pieces using something heavy like a mallet or rolling pin. TIP: Place a towel under the plastic bag to prevent it from getting a hole and to reduce the banging noise. Add the pumpkin pie spice and mix it into the graham crackers.
Place the graham crackers in a glass rimmer or on a small plate. Take the martini glass and dip into water on a plate or in a bowl, shake off excess, and coat the rim of the glass in the graham crackers.
Pumpkin Spice Martini
