I have the perfect fall cocktail for you today: pumpkin ginger bourbon punch. Don’t tell me you are tired of pumpkin yet. Hang with me just a little longer. Pumpkin ginger simple syrup combines with bourbon and ginger beer for a cocktail that basically tastes like fall in a cup.
Yes, I put pumpkin in our cocktails, and I’m not sorry about it. You know my thoughts on pumpkin-flavored items, so this punch should come as no shock. The pumpkin ginger simple syrup that makes this drink so tasty is full of fall spices. The pumpkin flavor is present, but not too strong. You could add this syrup to any cocktail for a great fall flavor.
I love adding ginger beer to any drink, especially in the colder months. It adds a bit of warmth and spice and makes the punch cozy and comforting. The combination of the pumpkin ginger simple syrup, bourbon, and ginger beer tastes like a Kentucky mule with an autumn twist. It is cinnamony and warm with a touch of pumpkin, a bit of spice, and a little heat from the bourbon. The cinnamon sugar rim is such a fun touch that makes the glasses look like they are sparkling.
Pumpkin ginger bourbon punch is perfect for your Halloween parties, Thanksgiving dinner, or your friendsgiving cocktail hour. Make a big batch and serve it in a punch bowl or pitcher for a group, or rim individual glasses with cinnamon sugar for a smaller group. It is like a hug in a glass – so cozy and delicious.
