Pumpkin spice isn’t just for lattes anymore, and the tastiest pumpkin spice cocktails prove it. If you enjoy a good boozy beverage and you’ve never tried any pumpkin cocktails before, autumn is the perfect excuse to enjoy these seasonal sips. You don’t even have to wait for Halloween or Thanksgiving to indulge.
As we all know, pumpkin spice has long been a favorite flavor for many Americans during the entire fall season. The beloved pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks has undoubtedly played a role in the flavor’s extraordinary popularity. However, we think the emergence of drinks like pumpkin spice beer and other pumpkin spice drinks at grocery stores and restaurants have given the spice blend even more of a lasting power. After all, many of us could use a boozy break while picking out the best Halloween costumes or decorating the house for Halloween — so why not kick back and relax with a pumpkin spice cocktail?
The good news is that if you love a good pumpkin spice cocktail — or any other alcoholic pumpkin drinks — they’re a lot easier to make than you’d think. You don’t need to spend a bunch of money to purchase pumpkin spice cocktails at a bar or restaurant. Many of them only include a few delicious ingredients that aren’t too hard to come by at the grocery store or liquor shop. You’ve probably even got some Baileys, bourbon, rum, or vodka at home already! Even better? There are tons of pumpkin cocktail recipes out there to choose from when you make your selection. From pumpkin spice rum drinks to pumpkin bourbon cocktails, the list of pumpkin drink recipes goes on and on.
