Fall is in the air, and with that comes the addictive waft of pumpkin spice creeping into our nostrils. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice candles, pumpkin spice beer, pumpkin spice donuts, pumpkin spice Oreos, pumpkin spice deodorant, pumpkin spice is literally everywhere. Close your eyes, spin in a circle, open them, and BAM… pumpkin spice shit. It’s almost like a cult, but instead of the leader having sex with all the women involved, it just sucks them into going to Starbucks five times a day.
Honestly, the only pumpkin spice I really need in my life is this kind. The PSM. Pumpkin spice moonshine.
Here’s how you can easily make your own.
1 can of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of pumpkin spice mix
1 gallon of apple cider
32 oz Everclear (or any other high-proof alcohol)
1 cup vanilla vodka.
Blend everything up except the alcohol in a blender and simmer in a pot for roughly 30 minutes. Chill mixture in the refrigerator until it’s cold. Add the booze to your liking (or all of it), sit around the bonfire, pour a jar, and pass it around.
Or, you know, you could always just buy some from Ole Smoky. Go behind the scenes with Delish to see how they make it.
And, if that’s a little too strong, you can always enjoy a tasty Pumpkin Spice White Claw.
