Make a Pumpkin Spice Moscow Mule
If you’re looking for a Pumpkin Mule recipe that uses pumpkin-flavored liquor, I also have that recipe!
But if you are looking with something that actually has pumpkin in it, this Pumpkin Spice Mule is it.
Moscow Mules are the perfect year-round cocktail. They’re refreshing with a little tang and can be changed up to add in seasonal flavors.
In this case, I’m adding the best pie spices plus a little vanilla to play up these yummy notes.
How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Mule
- 1 1/2 oz. vodka
- 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1 TBSP canned pumpkin (heaping)
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp agave
- ginger beer
Of course, as I was getting ready to make this recipe, I realized I didn’t have any more pie spice. It wasn’t the end of the world, thank goodness, because you can easily make your own. It just saves a minute if you already have it in the cupboard. I followed this recipe for homemade pie spice.
I love to use a little vanilla in my cocktail recipes. It’s such a good way to add a subtle flavor that helps to balance out the spices and lime. And, of course, it pairs deliciously with canned pumpkin.
I don’t love a sweet cocktail, but this did need the littlest bit of agave. The canned pumpkin is not sweetened so you need to add just a little. You could also use simple syrup if you have that instead.
To a cocktail shaker add pumpkin, vodka, pie spice, lime juice, vanilla, and agave.
Add ice to the shaker and shake well.
Pour over fresh ice in a copper mug.
Top with ginger beer.
Garnish the Pumpkin Pie Moscow Mule with a cinnamon stick.
You’re going to love this drink! It’s the perfect fall cocktail and you can make it your signature drink for your Friendsgiving.
Even with the agave it isn’t too sweet. The ginger beer keeps this refreshing. And the pumpkin flavor is subtle so it’s not like you are drinking a slice of pie. The vanilla vibes are good.
A cute copper mug completes this cocktail. It’s the best color for this time of year! These would make a great hostess gift idea! I love this smooth, straight kind but there are so many different styles to choose from!
And if your friends are fans of mules, I have a whole Moscow Mule Lovers gift guide of things they might enjoy!
