Hot Pumpkin Pie cocktails with marshmallow garnish

If you love the taste of warm pumpkin pie, these cocktails will be everything this chilly season. A Hot Pumpkin Pie cocktail is packed with comforting autumn flavours and is the perfect sipper to enjoy on cold nights. Made with vodka, Irish cream, pumpkin pie puree, and whipped cream, it’s the ideal after-dinner dessert drink. In fact, it’s so decadent that you’d be forgiven for not serving pud at all! Winning! 

So, put up your feet and enjoy the comforting and warming spice flavours of this drinkable dessert.  




Make pumpkin-infused vodka by mixing together pumpkin puree and spice with 120ml of vodka in a large jar. Seal and keep in the fridge for three days before using, shaking it a few times a day.


Make your own vanilla vodka: unscrew the bottle cap of a vodka bottle, pour out a shot and add 2 vanilla beans, close, and shake. Keep it in a dark, cool place for about 2 – 3 weeks, and it’s ready to enjoy!


For a vegan-friendly Hot Pumpkin Pie cocktail, substitute the milk for almond or coconut milk, and use coconut cream instead of double cream for the topping.


Turn your Hot Pumpkin Pie cocktail into a hot rum cocktail by replacing the vodka with dark rum.


To really impress, serve your spiced pumpkin cocktails with shortbread biscuits on the side. Absolutely moreish!
