With Halloween just around the corner, you’ll find supermarket shelves are filled with pumpkin spice everything. This seasonal sensation, brought about by the super successful Starbucks “pumpkin spice latte”, has now spread to your favorite alcoholic drinks. These can be used to conjure some delicious Halloween tipples that will even have blood-loving Dracula reaching for a glass.

Keep reading to see 3 pumpkin spice delights along with a few serving mixing suggestions, and you’ll see that not all Halloween spirits have to be scary.

1. Kahlua Pumpkin Spice

Everyone’s favorite coffee-flavored liqueur has been given a seasonal makeover. Natural pumpkin flavor and delicious autumnal spices have been added to the classic sugar cane rum.

With its versatile mixing ability, this tasty spirit is great for throwing into tons of different cocktails for a friendly Kahlua kick. Our favorite ideas include a coffee pumpkin martini, which mixes pumpkin puree, spiced rum and this special Kahlua. For those looking for something warm and relaxing, try adding a shot to your favorite hot chocolate and topping it with some whipped cream or Halloween marshmallows for good measure.

2. Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice

One of the world’s best-selling and creamiest liqueurs has also been updated with a Halloween twist with an infusion of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to deliver an enticing new taste. Like the original Bailey’s Irish Cream, this fall offering is delicious over ice or mixed with a number of hot beverages. Create your own pumpkin spiced latte with a kick, or give your dessert coffee an extra tasty creamer by adding a pour of this luxurious liqueur.

Another versatile mixer, this Minnesota-made vodka is produced using a secret recipe that includes fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, providing a complex taste with a slight sweetness. It can be sipped neat or mixed into a range of cocktails, including martinis or a hot toddy.

Feeling a little more adventurous? Try a ginger cooler to open up the senses, or mix Crop Spiced Pumpkin Vodka with simple syrup and lemon juice for a pumpkin collins.
