Pumpkin Cocktail Recipes


Pumpkin Cocktail Recipes are somewhat of an afterthought as seasons change. As the leaves turn from green to yellow and brown, you start to think of warm pumpkin pies and delicious pumpkin ales. Just because I own a vodka site, doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy my fair share of seasonal beers.

But I’d still like to be able to have a nice fall cocktail that isn’t always so heavy. Something that carries tantalizing autumn flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg, while still being able to give me that nice vodka kick that I really like. I was going to start playing with these ingredients in cocktails when I discovered Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka.

As it turns out, Pinnacle (widely known for their awesomely sweet Whipped Vodka) is releasing a new Pumpkin Pie flavored vodka. I know fancy drinks with spices is fun, but when it comes to parties, you need something easier. So before you go masterchef in your pantry trying to create that perfect fall cocktail, try out some these great vodka cocktails using Pinnacle’s new Pumpkin Pie Vodka.

*Disclaimer: I currently have not tried this vodka yet, and am hoping to get my hands on a bottle to do a full review soon. I really like what Pinnacle is trying to do with this vodka and am hoping that it turns out well for them!

Pumpkin Cocktails – Thanksgiving Cider:

  • Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cider1 part Pinnacle® Pumpkin Pie Vodka
  • 3 parts Apple Cider
  • Splash Club Soda
  • Build in order over ice in a tall highball glass.
  • Garnish with a lemon wedge.

The pumpkin pie flavors mixed with the apple cider should be very complimenting in this cocktail. Splash of club soda is more optional but I personally like a little carbonation in my drink.

 

Pumpkin Cocktails – Halloween Brew:

  • Pumpkin Martini1 part Pinnacle® Pumpkin Pie Vodka
  • 2 parts Fresh OJ
  • 1 part Cranberry Juice
  • Serve chilled in a martini glass
  • Garnish with a cherry.
This is great to try if you want to fancy up your pumpkin cocktail a little bit. These are also very easy ingredients to mix with as most people already have these juices in their fridge.

 

Pumpkin Cocktails – Berry Pie Fusion:

  • Pumpkin Pie Cocktail Recipes1 part Pinnacle® Pumpkin Pie Vodka
  • 3 parts Cranberry Juice
  • Splash Club Soda
  • Build in order over ice in a tall highball glass.
  • Garnish with a citrus wedge.
Very easy and simple highball cocktail that is great for the holidays. Again, this vodka has a lot of those fall flavors you are looking for and you don’t need to do much to help bring them out. I would also try using Blueberry-Cran as well as Cranberry-Apple juice for this cocktail.

 

 

Pumpkin Cocktails are definitely a fun and different way to enjoy a cocktail this fall. There are other good cocktail recipes that require spices and herbs that really are delicious, but sometimes you need something easy. Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka is definitely an easy way to enjoy those great pumpkin flavors and something you should try for this holiday season.
