It’s Thirsty Thursday!
A few years ago while at the liquor store – because here in the OR, hard liquor is only sold in liquor stores – don’t ask… Anyway, we came across this pumpkin liqueur that we had to try. It’s like a preloaded egg nog drink, just pumpkinny for the fall holidays when you’re not quite ho ho ho ready.
It’s a thicker sipping drink, so I thought what of different ways of enjoying this festive fall cocktails. It is 12.5% alcohol, so go easy. It’s also a reason why I came up with a few different variations. You can enjoy this 4 ways! On with making your choice of The Drunken Pumpkin…
1. On the Rocks!
This is just the straight out of the bottle style. Enjoy the full flavor of this liqueur!
Fill a low ball glass with ice, shake bottle of liqueur and pour. Top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.
2. With Vanilla Vodka
OK, this is punched up with a kick! Go easy on this one.
Fill a low ball glass with ice. Shake bottle and pour 1/3 cup Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur into glass. Add 1 shot of Vanilla Vodka. Top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.
3. With Cream Soda
This will add a touch of vanilla sweetness that will blend with the richness of the liqueur.
Fill a low ball glass with ice. Add 1/4 cup of Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur. Add 2 ounces of Cream Soda. I really enjoy this Virgil’s. No preservatives and no corn syrup! Top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.
4. With Vanilla Iced Coffee
Of course coffee and pumpkin go together, right?
Fill a low ball glass with ice. Add 1/4 cup Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur. Add 2-3 ounces of any iced coffee, flavored if you prefer. Top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.
Drunken Pumpkin Pie Cocktail
A rich and creamy fall or winter cocktail.

Nutmeg or Pumpkin Pie Spice
