6 Amazingly Delicious Pumpkin Spice Cocktails

So, first things first: What is Pumpkin Spice? Also known as Pumpkin Pie Spice. It is a blend of spices, typically used in most pumpkin pies. Most pumpkin spice blends contain cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon & ginger. Want to “spice” things up? Add some cardamom and star anise to your blend. But Pumpkin Spice is also a liqueur, which goes very well in cocktails. We’ve compiled a list of 6 amazingly delicious Pumpkin Spice cocktails.


How to make your own Pumpkin Spice blend?

Add a teaspoon of ground spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves) in a small container or jar. Screw on the lid and shake to mix well. You can add your blend straight to your pumpkin spice cocktails as an ingredient or garnish your pumpkin spice cocktails with it.


Pumpkin spice syrup

Another way to add delicious pumpkin spice flavors & sweetness to your cocktails is by adding pumpkin spice syrup. Making the syrup is simple. This recipe makes about 300ml of Pumpkin spice syrup.

Add 100ml of water and 100grams of table sugar to a saucepan. Dissolve the sugar over medium heat. Add two tablespoons of pureed pumpkins and one tablespoon of your homemade pumpkin spice blend.
