Serving and Freezing the Pumpkin Spice Martini 

One of the best parts about making this pumpkin spice martini with whipped cream is how perfectly it captures the cozy fall vibes we crave. But let me tell you a little secret: the fun doesn’t have to stop after that first delightful sip.

I always make sure to whip up a bigger batch to keep them chilled and enjoy little tastes of autumn all week. Any leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will last for 2-3 days.

Moreover, if you’re making this for a large gathering, you can make the cocktail ahead of time and refrigerate it. Just make sure to re-stir it before serving because the pumpkin spice martin will take time to settle.
