It's that time of year again... Pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! Literally, everything. From pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin spice baked goods. So, why not a pumpkin spice cocktail?
Wine cocktails are an excellent choice for a light, refreshing, lower alcohol volume, cocktail option. Wine cocktails can deliver all the flavor without putting you out of commission for the evening, but please, you should still drink responsibly.
We have affectionately named this wine cocktail "The Great Pumpkin". While we love to mix it up and sip on it while pumpkin carving and watching our favorite spooky movies, this pumpkin spice delight can be enjoyed all through the holiday season. Try pairing with some caramel corn to make your taste buds scream!
We recommend using a medium body, fruit forward chardonnay with just a touch of oak. The 1850 Chardonnay is a great choice for this cocktail. The touch of oak pairs with the pumpkin spice to give just a little depth while keeping this drink light and refreshing.
- 4oz 1850 Chardonnay
- 1oz Pumpkin spice liquor
- Cinnamon stick
- Club Soda (optional)
Fill a large glass or cocktail shaker with ice and combine 4oz of 1850 Chardonnay and 1oz of pumpkin spice liquor. Stir to mix then strain into a cocktail glass. Top with club soda to taste and garnish with cinnamon stick.
The cinnamon stick will add flavor and it makes this drink look amazing!
