Make an easy and delicious pumpkin cocktail recipe for your Thanksgiving guests!

I’m guessing you probably clicked open this post because you’re wondering how in the world dark chocolate, Irish, and pumpkin are in the same sentence, much less a cocktail recipe!  Last Thanksgiving a friend of mine brought an amazing Caramel Apple Wassail to our Thanksgiving dinner.  It was amazing! So I thought this year, we need another super delicious cocktail recipe for our Thanksgiving celebration.

Pumpkin cocktail ingredients

You will probably not find most of the ingredients you need for this pumpkin cocktail in your cupboard and liquor cabinet. I’m slightly fascinated with specialty liqueurs, like Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie cream Liqueur, so I’ll pick those up to try for a season.  Pumpkin egg nog is pretty popular right now and I even saw a non-dairy version at my grocery store recently.  Use any chocolate sauce you have on hand, buy a yummy dark chocolate sauce or even make your own homemade chocolate sauce.

Irish Pumpkin Cocktail

This pumpkin cocktail couldn’t be easier to make.  Prep the glasses (we used mojito glasses) with the chocolate and let them chill out in the fridge until you’re ready to mix the drink.  Put all the ingredients in a martini shaker and shake. Done. If you don’t have a martini shaker, try a mason jar with a plastic cap on it.  Pour the mixture into glasses, add some ice and serve – preferably around a cozy fire after a delicious meal.
