Fall festive martini - need ideas

I want to make a martini for Thanksgiving. Something apple or pumpkin or cranberry or anything remotely like that!

With dessert I also would love a great chocolate martini recipe.

I found a few online but would rather have recipes from those that know whats good. Thanks!

For a dessert martini I love the Creme Brulee martini from the Meridan Lounge on the Dream. Its vodka, baileys, and amaretto with caramel drizzled around the glass. My special touch to it is I use caramel vodka.

Cosmos: Cranberry juice, Gran Marnier and vodka. Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with orange slice or peel and or whole cranberries. I never measure and sometimes splash in a little lemon lime soda too. Maybe call it a Crantini or something more festive for your party.

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I saw it on the internet somewhere and wrote it down for the holidays. It sounds really good for a dessert drink.
Spiced Pumpkin: 2 parts Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka, 1 part Irish Cream and a splash of 1/2 and 1/2. Shake with ice and strain into a cinnamon sugar rimmed martini glass. Top with whip cream. I can't wait to try this one!

Disneyhand: Laughing because I tried the Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka martini last night. It didn't have enough pumpkin flavor to pull through (mainly tasted like Baileys). We did the first one with just the vodka & Baileys. Second we tried it over ice with more milk and a little cinnamon and nutmeg, but it still didn't have a pumpkin flavor. We know they make a pumpkin cream liquer that may do the trick, though.

Good luck to OP.

Oh no! It sounded so good! Can you even taste pumpkin in the vodka? Maybe I don't need it at all, just the liquer? Sorry OP!

Thanks for the ideas.

This is a good one:

Amaretto Cranberry Kiss
1 part Vodka, 2 parts amaretto, cranberry juice (to taste), splash of orange juice. Shake with ice; put orange wedge on rim.

Many liquor stores I frequent will, around this time of year, carry Pumpkin Spice or Gingerbread liqueurs; paired with a modertalely good vodka either makes a nice martini.

Depending what you like with chocolate martinis, it can be as simple as vodka and creme de cacao strained into a martini glass drizzled with hershey syrup. Or, you can be more fancy and involve bailey's, godiva, etc.

Really it depends more whether you're looking for a drink drink, or more of a desert-like cocktail that happens to have some alcohol.
