I’m sure the pumpkin-obsessed are just counting down the days until fall starts. In only a matter of weeks, you’ll be able to sip on your pumpkin-nutmeg chai latte while nibbling on a pumpkin-brown butter cookie, with zero guilt. In all honesty though, who says you have to wait until September 22 to indulge in all things pumpkin? Absolutely no one! There are some amazing, pumpkin cocktails out there that are still summer-friendly. To hold you over before fall, I’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of the best, so you can live your pumpkin-loving life to the fullest. Cheers!
Pumpkin Pie White Russian – It only makes sense to start off with a cocktail I made for Lushworthy almost two years ago. Although it was created smack dab in the middle of fall, it’s still a great, dessert-y cocktail to enjoy as late summer nears. [Recipe – Lushworthy.com]
Smashing Pumpkin – Rum is my absolute favorite spring/summer spirit, and this cocktail is made using just that. With the addition of homemade lemon-pumpkin soda, the Smashing Pumpkin is one of few pumpkin cocktails that’s also refreshing. [Recipe – Liquor.com]
It’s fall! Time for sipping on boozy treats, rocking killer boots, and snuggling up to a good 1.5-star movie on Netflix. With that being said, there clearly isn’t enough time to do all that and slave away at your bar cart making cocktails with extensive ingredients lists. So, I’ve compiled a list of five, three-ingredient fall cocktails that are definitely the move this season. Check ’em out below. Cheers!
Apple Cider Sangria – Red wine, Crown Royal Apple, and apple cider.
So, last year my cousin and I started what’s likely going to be a new tradition, and that is a Thanksgiving Sangria Battle! We each make our own sangria and let the fam choose who the winner is. I think I lost last year. Haters. But my Apple Cider Sangria was on point!
Spiked Nutella Hot Chocolate – Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon, Nutella, and milk.
