The White Pumpkin Cocktail

I think it’s nice to keep a little elegance in Halloween.

Not that it isn’t fun to be totally gross once in a while – cover everything in fake blood, put your hands in a bowl of cold spaghetti “brains” and serve appetizers that look like eyeballs… but eh, I think it’s more original to be fancy with it.

I like using flowers and seasonal, natural ingredients and accents. I keep it fancy – and enjoy the eyeballs at my friend’s parties.

This White Pumpkin cocktail is perfect for the party host or hostess who wants to keep their Halloween cocktail party classy and whimsical.

I suggest using a simple, seasonal, flowery wisp for a garnish with this cocktail. Just something delicate in the tones of Fall.

Pro Tip!

Never shake directly from the spice container when you’re sprinkling cocktails. You can easily ruin a pretty drink with a burst of more spice than you were expecting.

Always add it to your hand and use your fingers to sprinkle.

What You Need to Make This Cocktail

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Ice cubes – for shaking
  • Coup glasses

Can it Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes! This is one of my favorite Autumn cocktail party signatures, so I make a batch of it ahead of time, keep it chilled in the fridge and simply pour, shake with ice, garnish and serve. For 6 pre-made cocktails, simply mix 9 oz. of white rum, 12 oz. vanilla/almond milk, and 3 tsp. honey.
