10 Pumpkin Drinks That Are Perfect for Fall
Fall means cozy sweaters, pretty leaves...and pumpkin-flavored everything. So what better way to celebrate the season than with one of these delicious pumpkin drinks? Cheers!
Pumpkin Spice Moscow Mule
There are so many ways to make a Moscow mule. But perhaps one of our favorites is by adding a dash of pumpkin spice to it, like this recipe from Freutcake does. Pro tip: If you like a sweeter sip, use vanilla vodka instead of regular.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Nothing announces the return of fall quite like the return of the PSL to Starbucks. But now you don’t have to wait in the drive-thru line to snag the cult-favorite beverage—make your own at home with this simple recipe from A Magical Mess.
Pumpkin Apple Sangria
If margaritas are the drink of the summer, then sangria is the drink of the fall. Seasonal Cravings shows us how to make our own pumpkin apple blend by tossing pumpkin, pears, apples, cranberries and oranges into a pitcher of dry white wine. It’s just as good as our other favorite sangria recipes!
Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Shakes
For those times when your plain old cup of joe just won’t cut it, whip up one of these frozen concoctions. Part coffee, part slushie (and 100 percent pumpkin-flavored), they’re a refreshing treat on a warm September afternoon.
Pumpkin Pie Shots
Warning: This could be the most fun drink you sip on this season. With only a handful of ingredients, this gelatin shot variation is super easy to mix up the next time you’re hosting book club or girls’ night in.
Pumpkin Pie Martini
Happy hour is about to get a lot happier thanks to No Spoon Necessary’s twist on the traditional. Start by making the perfect martini, then add pumpkin puree, maple syrup and vanilla. And don’t forget the crushed graham cracker rim that really makes this creative cocktail!
Spiced Pumpkin Warm-Up
Meet the decadent drink of your dreams. Warm half and half is mixed with pumpkin and autumn spices and then topped with a healthy dollop of whipped cream. Tip: You can even add a splash of alcohol or coffee if you’d like.
Juice is having a moment right now—and this pumpkin version from House of Nash Eats is proof of why. While it’s more cider than juice, it’s still a deliciously sweet drink with good-for-you properties from the pumpkin and pear nectar. Psst! Did you know you can also make cold-pressed juice without a juicer?
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
Pumpkin pie, but make it a milkshake. After all, just because the weather might be cooler, doesn’t mean it’s not the perfect time to treat yourself to The Thirsty Feast’s indulgent treat, blended with vanilla ice cream and pumpkin and topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs.
