The New England country chateau, with its luxurious rooms and surroundings, is famed as much for its spa facility treatments as its culinary program, expansive wine list and decadent, specialty cocktails.

Drink Name: Mayflower Pumpkin Martini


  • 1.5 oz. spiced rum
  • 1.5 oz. pumpkin puree
  • 1 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 oz. Grade A amber maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Combine and shake all ingredients well with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a pinch of pumpkin pie spice.

“It’s good enough to be dessert,” said Avallone. “This tastes like your favorite pumpkin pie with just a hint of spiced rum for an adult kick.”
