Apple-Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

I’ve said time and time again that Fall is my favorite time of the year. Not only is the weather invigorating, but the flavors of Fall are some of the best – pumpkins, apples, cinnamon, yams, etc. With that in mind I was thrilled to taste the new Pumpkin Spice flavor by Kahlua, and create a cocktail for you all.

For this drink I decided to combine seasonal flavors with the addition of lemon and the result is this light, refreshing cocktail. Here’s the recipe:

Apple-Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

  • 1/2 cup apple juice {I used a low-sugar variety}
  • 1/4 cup lemonade
  • 1 oz Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice

Combine ingredients over ice, and garnish with a slice of apple.

TIP: Dip or spray apple slice with lemon juice to preserve color.

If this looks good to you PIN IT for later and share.

This is just one of the things I’m doing to get ready for Fall and fall entertaining. Here are some others that might help you get ready too:

  • Stock the pantry and refrigerator with ingredients that remind me of Autumn, like canned pumpkin, spice cake mix, canned beans {for chili}, pumpkin spice coffee creamer, etc.
  • Clean up and organize the guest room for holiday visitors – they’ll be here before we know it!
  • Organizing seasonal decorations. Getting rid of things I’ll never use again; Using flowers and pumpkins to decorate with {items you don’t have to store away}.
