Sweetened naturally with honey, and made with real pumpkin puree, this fall cocktail contains all the fall flavors with a hint of spice!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’ve put pumpkin into a lot of recipes, however this is my first real pumpkin cocktail recipe!

This fall cocktail is pumpkin spice and everything nice with notes of cinnamon, apple and honey. I used Libby’s 100% pure pumpkin because I always have a can (or five!) stocked in my pantry for baking and more. I decided to name this pumpkin apple spice cocktail because of exactly what’s in it and I’m calling it “Once Upon a Pumpkin punch”, named after this blog too!

Making cocktails at home is a really fun way to experiment with different seasonal flavors, and try something you maybe haven’t tried before. A fall themed cocktail like this is perfect for a date night at home, and your Thanksgiving table. Cheers!
