These pumpkin spice cocktails are perfect for your fall celebrations; they’re relatively easy to make, and your guests will love them. The ultimate Fall ingredient perfectly complements your favorite tipple: whiskey, vodka, or Dumplin Creek moonshine. The combined flavors are rich and velvety and will leave you feeling warm and cozy (and not just because of the booze, we swear!). So, from Martinis to Old Fashioned and some in between, we’ve got the best pumpkin spice cocktails for Fall.
First up is an Old Tennessee Classic, the Pumpkin Roll. This favorite has started many parties towards the end of the year, and it uses just two ingredients, which makes it the perfect addition to yours.
- 4 oz. Dumplin Creek Pumpkin Patch Moonshine
- 4 oz. French Vanilla Creamer
Pour the moonshine into a tumbler and add a few ice blocks. Pour the French Vanilla Creamer over the ice and stir gently to combine. If you want to up the spice, sprinkle some cinnamon on top for a bit of zing.
Pumpkin Spice Martini
Add a bit of Fall magic to this elegant cocktail. The Pumpkin Spice Martini is creamy, warming, and still maintains the edginess of its original form.
- 1.5 oz. Dumplin Creek vodka
- 1 oz. Dumplin Creek Pumpkin Patch Moonshine
- 1.5 oz. Old Tennessee Distilling Cinnamon Roll Cream Liquor
- 1 tsp of pumpkin spice
- A pinch of ground nutmeg
Combine the vodka, moonshine, pumpkin spice, and liquor in a shaker filled with ice. Shake until the shaker is frosted on the outside. Strain into a Martini glass and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
Pumpkin Spice Latte With a Kick
This pumpkin spice latte is like an autumnal Irish coffee and will work perfectly drunk around a roaring fire.
- 1 oz. Freshly brewed coffee (ideally full-strength)
- 2 oz. Old Tennessee Premium American Whiskey
- 2 tbsp pumpkin spice syrup
- 1 cup of frothed whole milk
- ½ a cup of whipped cream
- A pinch of pumpkin spice
Brew the coffee, add it to a large mug with the pumpkin spice syrup and the whiskey, and stir. Top up with the frothed milk and whipped cream. Garnish with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice.
Pumpkin Spice White Russian
The Pumpkin Spice White Russian is decadent, creamy, and bursting with spice. Perfect for a cold Fall evening.
- 3 oz. Dumplin Creek Vodka
- 3 oz. french vanilla creamer
- 1.5 oz. Old Tennessee Butter Pecan Cream Liquor
- A generous pinch of pumpkin spice
- Whipped cream (optional)
Combine the vodka, creamer, liquor, and half the pumpkin spice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice until chilled. Pour over ice blocks in a tumbler. Top with whipped cream and pumpkin spice.
Pumpkin Spice Old Fashioned
Take this simple but “gentlemanly” drink and give it a contemporary Fall twist. “Old Fashioneds” are great cocktails to serve at parties as they’re relatively easy to make. In this recipe, we’ve replaced half the simple syrup with pumpkin spice syrup to make it deliciously seasonal.
- 1.5 oz Old Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey
- 1 tsp of simple syrup
- 1 tsp of pumpkin spice syrup
- 2 dashes of bitters
- Ice cubes
- For Garnish: Orange peel and pumpkin spice
Before you start, mix the pumpkin spice with a dash of sugar. Wet the rim of your glass (this can be done using simple syrup, an orange wedge, or by freezing the glass). Pour the combined pumpkin spice and sugar on a plate and dip the glass rim in it, twisting to ensure it’s fully covered.
Then, in a separate glass, mix both syrups, the bitters, and water. Once mixed, add this to your rimmed glass, followed by ice cubes and the bourbon. Lastly, add an orange peel as garnish.
