Pumpkin Espresso Martini 12 Months of Cocktails at AKB Florham Park

The Inspiration
Garden state pumpkin picking

An agricultural mecca in the 1800s, New Jersey earned its Garden State nickname as a leading producer of berries, peaches, spinach and squash. Even today, much of the state is still wooded, with more than 9,000 farms growing a variety of fruits and vegetables — including one of the state’s important cash crops and fall’s favorite winter squash, the pumpkin.

FUN FACT: Some of our favorite autumn escapes include pumpkin picking that’s close to Florham Park.

Alex Giacchino, bar supervisor at AKB in Florham Park, created this pumpkin espresso martini for Archer’s 12 Months of Cocktails September pour. It’s a spirited nod to the upcoming pumpkin spice season with added buzz from espresso and Kahlua.

The Recipe

A sugar-rimmed martini glass welcomes the warm flavors of Stoli Vanil, Kahlua, espresso and pumpkin spice syrup that’s been shaken with ice. Floating a few espresso beans on top finishes this Garden State-inspired favorite cocktail.
