Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Infused Moonshine

Gear up, I’m about to take the whole PSL (pumpkin spice latte) fad to a whole new level! Many of you are getting ready to Halloween festivities and may be looking for a yummy adult beverage to serve at the parties. With all the flavors of fall, pumpkin spice moonshine is a fun drink that has a great kick! Here’s my favorite pumpkin spice blend:

2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

 Whether you have made your own moonshine from scratch and want to kick it up a little or go the easy route and purchase some high proof alcohol, this is a great drink to serve at all the adult-centered Halloween parties.

Pumpkin Spiced Moonshine


  • 1 large can 100% pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate.
  • 2 pints of high proof alcohol (vodka, everclear, “moonshine.”)*
  • Whip cream *optional


  1. In a blender combine pumpkin puree, brown sugar, 1 can of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate.
  2. Add mixture to a large pot and add two 2 pints of alcohol. (You won’t be cooking with the pot, I just found it to help mix the contents up better).
  3. Stir mixture until smooth and then ladle into into Mason jars, seal and refrigerate. When you are ready for beverage drink to mix the spices up and, if preferred, add a dollop of whipped cream for the full effect. (We made a sugar rim on the glass and served it as is, and it was amazing!)

  1. Tired Ofit says:

    Would you let it clear and siphon off the pumpkin puree? I think the flavour would still be there, but it might look better a little clearer, without the pumpkin ‘settlings’. I really like your site, and bookmarked it for future reference! If you want some more recipes like this, I just got a book called “How to Master Moonshine” by Marshall on Amazon. Dozens of recipes on how to make these kinds of liqueurs, whether you actually make moonshine or not.
