Pumpkin Pie Punch

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the humble pumpkin is one of the most versatile ingredients there is! It can be used fresh or canned, in a huge variety of recipes from savory to sweet, and even in drinks – like this rum-spiked pumpkin punch!

This cocktail is really easy to make and is as simple as stirring everything together and pouring into glasses. Get the full recipe card at the end of this post.

Ingredients used in this cocktail

To make this seasonal cocktail (perfect for Halloween parties too!) you will need the following ingredients.

  • Canned Pumpkin Purée
  • Spiced Apple Cider – for my UK readers, I explain all about apple cider in this other cocktail recipe. This is not our boozy cider, but essentially cloudy apple juice. Add a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spices to add the spiced element.
  • Regular or Spiced Rum – use your preferred brand
  • Cream Soda – is a sweet soft drink, generally flavored with vanilla and based on the taste of an ice cream soda, a wide range of variations can be found worldwide.
  • Whipped Cream – whip up fresh cream, or use from a can
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice*

*Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice: If you can’t find pumpkin pie spice, it is really easy to make yourself with individual spices that all supermarkets should sell. To make 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, in a small bowl, mix together: ¼ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp ginger, ⅛ tsp allspice, and ⅛ tsp nutmeg. Use in recipes as required.

Pumpkin Pie Punch Variations

Virgin Pumpkin Pie Punch (Mocktail)

So that non-drinkers and kids can enjoy a glass of pumpkin punch, simply don’t put in the rum! That goes for all of the variations I’ve included below.

However, if you have adults that still want the flavor of rum, but not the alcohol content, why not try a dash of rum-flavored syrup? You may have to experiment with quantities as it is a syrup and not a liquor.

I love the Monin brand of syrups as there are lots of flavors and they are a very versatile ingredient that can be used in cocktails, mocktails, coffee, cocoa, shakes, smoothies, and more.

I discovered that Monin has a Caribbean syrup which is described as “Nose of Caribbean rum aged in oak barrel; sweet rum taste with notes of fruits and vanilla … will convert rum-based alcoholic cocktails to their non-alcoholic versions without losing the rum aroma“. So worth trying that out I think!

Warm Pumpkin Pie Rum Punch

Serving this cocktail on a chilly evening? Why not warm it up? Place the pumpkin and apple cider in a pan over medium-low heat, and gently warm through. Remove from the heat, pour in the rum and cream soda. Decant into glasses and top with whipped cream and pumpkin spice. Serve in glasses with handles.

Frozen Pumpkin Pie Punch

Want to turn this punch into a frozen slushie? Easy! In a blender whizz together the pumpkin, apple cider, and rum to combine, then add a generous amount of crushed ice, blend until smooth. Transfer to glasses and pour in cream soda. Top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice as before. Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze!

Hard Cider Pumpkin Pie Punch

Add even more booze to this cocktail by using spiced hard apple cider (that’s regular old cider for us Brits!) instead.

I’m not sure if pear cider is available outside of the UK, but switch the [hard apple] cider for pear cider (or perry) and make the cocktail as in the original recipe. You could also try warming or freezing the ingredients as described above!

Large Batch Pumpkin Pie Punch

It’s so easy to scale up cocktails to serve a large crowd as the original recipe is made with cup measures – just use a bigger measuring container for the “cup” – it could be a pint glass, a large measuring jug, or even a bowl!

As long as you use the same measure throughout, the ratios will be correct and you can make as much as you need to. Serve in drinks dispenserspitchers, or go really retro and serve it from a punch bowl! Provide whipped cream and spices so that guests can finish off their beverage!
