Pumpkin Drink FAQ’s
Can I use pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree?
Many of thee recipes emphasize the need to use puree instead of pumpkin pie filling. This matters because fall spices are added to the filling, and could throw off the taste of the drink.
If pumpkin pie filling is all you’ve got on hand, you can still work with that. Just reduce any extra spices in the recipe if your filling is already providing them.
Should I substitute one kind of alcohol for another?
You can, but keep in mind it can radically alter the flavor. If you want to experiment, I’d recommend keeping the kind of drink consistent. For example, only use other clear alcohols (like gin or tequila) if you’re substituting for vodka.
I’d use the same rule when switching out darker drinks too. So I’d avoid using vodka in place of bourbon!
Can I make these pumpkin drink recipes without the booze?
So many of these can be made dry by removing the alcohol. The mudslide, sparking spiced pumpkin punch, pumpkin apple sangria,and the iced pumpkin green tea cocktail are the best candidates for this.
Non-boozy versions are great for parties with kids and gatherings with sober friends. It’s always nice to have the option available for those who simply prefer not to drink.
