It’s September, it’s post-Labor Day, it’s official: It’s pumpkin season. Sure there’s the PSL but it should be no surprise that our favorite pumpkin drinks are pumpkin cocktails - it’s market research after all!
So ‘tis the Pumpkin Season, ‘tis the time for boozy pumpkin cocktails. Here are our six favorites for fall.
Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Smash Cocktail
You can’t go wrong with the bourbon + pumpkin combo, ever, but the element that truly makes this cocktail is the homemade pumpkin pie simple syrup. When we’re not putting it in this cocktail, we’re topping our ice cream with it or hell, drinking it straight.
Pumpkin Pie Martini
This pumpkin pie vodka-based martini, with dark rum, cinnamon, maple syrup, crushed graham crackers, and whipped cream is legit Autumn in a glass.
Spiced Pumpkin Cocktail
The only thing better than this cocktail is how easy it is to make. Pumpkin vodka, Irish cream liqueur, and a cinnamon sugar rimmed glass. Done and done. (And drunk).
Pumpkin Pie Sangria
Sangria usually goes hand in hand with hot summer nights, but no more! White wine, sparkling cider, pumpkin pie vodka and chopped apples and pears transition this summer cocktail to fall with pure perfection.
Pumpkin Moscow Mule
Ginger beer and pumpkin pie vodka are a great combo, but tbh our favorite thing about this cocktail is the jack o'lantern cocktail glass so brb, going onto Amazon to search for it now.
Pumpkin Kahlúa Colada
Another regular summer star gets transformed into an autumn superstar with Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice Liqueur combined with cream of coconut and whipped cream perfection.
