Pumpkin Rumtini

I found an ingenious use for my luscious pumpkin rum sorbet. What does Grubarazzi do with a cup of sorbet waiting patiently to be eaten in the freezer? Make ice cold, creamy Pumpkin Rumtini’s! 

It’s like re-gifting… to myself!




Watch out. You will want to slurp these up faster than you can say “yummy”, but you might go to bed early after drinking one of these (I do not know this from experience). I will be making a double batch of my pumpkin rum sorbet just to drink these babies with my family on Christmas.




What You Will Need 

A cocktail shaker  
2 martini glasses, chilled
1 cup of pumpkin rum sorbet (recipe here)
1 tablespoon of real maple syrup
2 ounces Amarula
A handful of golden raisins, soaked in rum



Allow the pumpkin sorbet to soften slightly (or microwave for 20 seconds).  Place all of the ingredients in to cocktail shaker, cover, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Pour in to chilled martini glasses and garnish with rum soaked golden raisins.

  7. That is SUCH a good idea! I was making some of David Lebovitz's vanilla ice cream one time and for some reason tasted it before I churned it. It was like the best coffee creamer ever. Now I use a scoop of ice cream in my coffee all the time, because the flavors are virtually unlimited!
