What Does A White Pumpkin Cocktail Taste Like?

We’re sure you’ve enjoyed the flavours associated with pumpkin spice over the festive period. Everything from hot chocolates & coffees to donuts bear this charming aroma when the leaves begin to fall. 

The flavour is not dissimilar to eggnog in that milk and alcohol combine to give a subtle taste that sits nicely on the palate. Add to this the sweetness of diluted honey and a touch of pumpkin spice, and the overall taste is pleasant enough to drink a few of them without noticing a strong alcohol content.

When Can I Serve A White Pumpkin Cocktail?

It would seem odd to serve such a beverage in the heat of summer, so as the nights draw in and a flurry of colourful leaves build up on the ground, that’s exactly the right time to get your shaker & chic cocktail glass out.

You can make a batch up and leave it in the fridge for a tasty drink to unwind after work, or enjoy with a loved one by the fire while the kids play in the evening.  

Can I Make A White Pumpkin Cocktail In Advance?

Once made, the mixture will last for a couple of days in the fridge, and when it’s time to serve simply remove, add some ice, give it a shake and serve. 

Milk and alcohol aren’t often combined together too far ahead of time, however the addition of honey will allow the mixture to stay together well if it is beaten together properly before storing. 

Ready For That Tasty Fall Cocktail?

If you’re ready to make your own white pumpkin cocktail recipe, be sure to have the correct equipment on hand to deliver a perfect serve. As it’s an autumn cocktail that needs to be shaken, it’s the perfect time to invest in a quality cocktail shaker. You never know what you’ll be making next!
