It’s a party. Of somewhat epic proportions. And you’re all invited.

I’m talking about a virtual party of course. One that is dedicated entirely to everyone’s favorite Fall food: pumpkin.

Well, it’s not my favorite Fall food. But that’s OK. I’m still down to celebrate. I’d never pass up a rocking party. Especially when there is so much deliciousness involved.

This #virtualpumpkinparty is the brainchild of my friend Sara from Cake Over Steak. Who consequently is coming to visit me this weekend so we can drink ALL THE bourbons together!!! Yeah!

Sara has organized an impressive list of food bloggers to “attend” her party. Like 70 of us. And we’ve all brought our A-game with some fantastic savory and sweet pumpkin recipes. You can find the links to all the other bloggers recipes below, so make sure to set aside a few hours (no joke) of your day and check them all out. You’ll have enough pumpkin recipes to last you a lifetime.

Since no party is complete without a house cocktail, I knew I wanted to mix up a celebratory libation for this event. Pumpkin beer was an obvious ingredient choice. But I wanted to create even more of a pumpkiny flavor for my cocktail. So I added in a little bit of pumpkin purée as well. Once shaken with the other ingredients, the pumpkin purée blends nicely, resulting in a smooth drink with just the perfect punch of pumpkin (say that 3 times fast!).

Side note: don’t put beer in your shaker and then shake it. I had a serious lapse in judgment and I did this, blowing the top off the shaker and nearly missing my left eyeball. Be smarter than me!!!

Oh and will you just LOOK at the color of this cocktail! I can’t get over it. I am totally smitten with all things orange.

My Pumpkin Beertail with Tequila and Spiced Rum is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, football watching or even just kicking back and relaxing after a marathon leaf raking session. I’m sure you’ll find plenty of occasions to mix up one of these beertails this season!

Cheers,

Liz

  • Now this is the perfect drink for October! I know my brother-in-law would go crazy over this.
    So glad to see you in the pumpkin party Liz! You’re totally right, EPIC proportions!

    • Ha ha. Thanks, Tori!


  • Totally into these cocktails!!! Seriously, I can *almost* taste them! I feel like I haven’t gotten this excited about pumpkin a long time, and I can totally see how I’m going to spend hours today just looking through everyone’s posts. Wednesday’s productivity just tanked 🙂

    Reply

    • Oh I know. I’m not getting anything done today! Thanks, Laura!


  • Um okay I will put pumpkin puree in all of my cocktails from now on. Love this drink, and I can’t wait to try! Also, love the advice on how not to shake beer up in your cocktail shaker. Noted. 😉 Happy pumpkin day! xoxo

    Reply

    • Yeah, beer in the cocktail shaker was a dumb move on my part. Ha ha ha! Glad I can set an example of what not to do for everyone else!


  • Bourbon bourbon bourbon CHOCOLATE. <– These are my feelings and excitement for this weekend! Eek! I'll just go ahead and start packing now, right? Ha, I've made the mistake of shaking a carbonated drink in a cocktail shaker before, DISASTER. Glad you avoided any eyeball injuries. Ok now I have to go drool over everyone's recipes, but I would take this cocktail right about now, just to get through the day, ya know?

    Reply

    • Ok, glad I’m not the only one who has mistakenly put carbonation in a shaker. Ha! Can’t wait to see you soon!!!!


  • It’s 6am here..which means it’s passed SOME form of 5 o’clock. Which means I am totally okay to get up and drink this RIGHT NOW? Love that you used pumpkin and tekillya!

    • I hope you love them, Lauren!


  • You know I’m a fan of beertails, right?! And you just put pumpkin in it and took it to the next level. I love this, Liz! (And I too am not a huge fan of things pumpkin-y, but if it has beer and tequila and/or butter and sugar in it then count me in!)

    Reply

    • Yeah, tequila and beer and butter and sugar make everything better. Always. Miss you, friend!


  • Yasss girl! I can get down with this cocktail.

    Reply

    • Yahoo! Thanks, Erika!


  • I want to get trapped inside this pumpkin fiesta and eat my way out UUUUGH I’m loving all the pumpkin!

    I had been wondering if pumpkin would make a good cocktail, and you just went and solved that mystery for me. Bring on the Beertail!

    Reply

    • It’s been BROUGHT! 🙂


  • Another way to enjoy my favorite fall flavor! And spiced rum isn’t too shabby either 😉

    Reply

    • Oh yeah. Spiced Rum is always a good idea! 🙂


  • Ah this is so fun!!! And I love that glass. I think my boyfriend has some bitters, I’m going to have to find them so I can make this!

    Reply

    • Oh you totally need to make this! I hope you love it, Erica!


  • Hhahah I forgot and did the same thing with club soda. yeah…was a mess to clean up! This cocktail is GORGEOUS!!

    Reply

    • Thanks, Allie! I’m excited for the weekend!


  • But can I do alternating cross punches to emphasize each word when I say “the PERFECT PUNCH of PUMPKIN”?!??? This sounds SO SO SO SO good and I want it all. With spiced rum and bitters, girl? Dannnnnng.

    Reply

    • You can totally do alternating punches. And I hope a little dance as well. I’d like to see that. XOXO!


  • So gorgeous, so flavorful, would love one right this moment!

    Reply

    • Thanks, Katalina!


  • I love that you made a cocktail to celebrate this party! You’re right, it is going to take me several hours to work my way through everyone’s recipes. I am really impressed with your creation. I would not have had the courage to try and make pumpkin work in a cocktail! Happy to have met you through this pumpkin bash!

    Reply

    • Aww…thanks for the awesome compliments, Kathryn! Sounds like a little liquid courage is in order. Ha ha! 🙂


  • This cocktail should be THE poster child for fall libations! I LOVE IT, Liz! I mean you could have easily just stopped at pumpkin beer and pumpkin puree, but you totally pulled out all the stops with Tequila AND Rum! OMG, and the touch of maple syrup?! PERFECTION! It’s only 8:30 am, how long do you think I can hold out before I say screw it and make one of these? I give me an hour. lol Pinned! Cheers, my sweets!
