Hi guys, I'm new to the board and yes, of course, I have a question.

My wife and I are hosting our 5th annual Pumpkin Carving Party this year and we are wanting to serve some libation and call it "Pumpkin Juice". We have contacted the local liquor stores here and have looked online for a source of a pumpkin spirit (i.e. pumpkin vodka, pumpkin schnapps, pumpkin liqueur) and have come up empty handed. I know there's a pumpkin beer that is available during the holiday season, but has anybody heard of a pumpkin liquor? And would you know how to obtain it?

Maybe recipes for making your own. Anything you all could do to help would be appreciated.

Never heard of a pumpkin liquor but you may want to check with a winery. There are a few that do differnt things for the seasons and most would probably be bottling fall flovors now.

I actually used to have a bottle of that schnapps. It was more like cinnamon than pumpkin. Can't find it anywhere online, but that recipe is proof it existed at one time.
I have found that ABC liquor can generally get you anything you ask for.

My favorite was Pear flavored cider, since they had to order a case to get us some we took 2 six packs. The guy there said that the rest was sold out in a day and that they have gotten it since and it is gone as soon as they put it in the cooler. I love that stuff, so I told him to call me next time!
LOL

Check out your local watering holes. I was always amazed at the number of bottles of Liquour you could find at the bars in the States. Check out bars that carry the "puckers" line as they usually have everything then. Also, check out martini bars if there are any near you. Once you find the stuff on the shelves, then find out who the supplier is and go from there. I cant imagine it should be that hard to find. Funny when your looking for something you can never find it eh.

I asked my wife that too. But she isn't in favor of taking surgar out of anything. She hates it when she orders a coke and I a diet coke from Micky Ds, and when I drink mine I think it tastes like a regular coke. So, I ask her to try my drink and she give me the "gag face." Which means it is diet. LOL. OH, well. Some people's kids. Can't my wife just tell me it is diet? Man!

Yep, I am Diet Pespsi drinker too. But I perfer it in bottles. The cans just don't do it for me. And I do the same to my wife too, but I have mastered the art of "The honest face." A lot of stores have gotten away from Diet Pepsie. Micky Ds is one of them. But I will drink it if that is all they have.

OH, I am the goofy one that sent Mr. M that funky red box in the mail.

Back to the action...

I've only ever had the pumpkin spiced beers available during the fall. I never even thought there could be any other pumpkin-spiced liquor on the market.

I have heard of pumpkin liqueur but last year the only one I could find is the already mentioned Bols Pumpkin Smash Liqueur. I couldn't find it at my local store but I did find a couple of online sources. I wasn't curious enough to order but for anyone that wants to try it here you go:

http://www.specsonline.com/

For ale lovers Coors puts out a Pumpkin Ale. I think there are a bunch of others too. I'm not a beer or ale lover so I haven't tried this either although it would be good for a party I think. :jol:

Thanks guys, I found the Bol's at Specs and ordered a case. I knew joining this forum was going to be a great thing for me. Thanks for all of your help.

PS I also like the pumpkin pie blizzard from Sonic.

OK, this isn't going to be helpful in any way, but it is on the subject and it will increase my post count so here it is...

Last year I was in New York and the Heartland Brewery in the Empire State Building had a Pumkin Ale. It's a seasonal and I'm not sure if they plan to have it again this year or if they ship it. Like I said, not useful but at least topical.

pumpkin liquer

I have recently been told that pumpkin liquer can be made by cleaning a pumpkin, packing it with brown sugar, placing it in a large pot, set it in a closet for a month and then syphining it as one would for beer. I have been told it tastes like coffee type liquer. I am going to try it this year but wonder if anyone out there has heard of this or tried it ?
