Autumn in New England Cocktail Recipe - Pumpkin Cocktail Contest

Autumn in New England cocktail with chocolate drizzle

Your Name (optional)

Stephanie Jerzy

Cocktail Name

Autumn in New England

Your cocktail recipe.

1 part Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

1 to 1 1/2 parts Voyant Chai Cream Liqueur

1/2 part ABSOLUT Vanilla

Drizzle cold chocolate syrup inside and on rim of martini glass. Dip rim in grated cinnamon to create a golden brown rim.

Pour all ingredients with ice together in a mixing glass. Shake vigorously and strain into martini glass.

Your inspiration.

As someone who works closely with the Hiram Walker brand, I thoroughly enjoy the seasonal Pumpkin Spice liqueur for its sweet profile of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. I took a Pumpkin Chai recipe from the Hiram Walker website database and chose to revamp it.

While still wanting the pumpkin and cinnamon spices to remain a prominent flavor, the creamy texture and strong blend of spices in the Voyant Chai liqueur make for a sweet transition into Autumn.


  • If you wish to add cinnamon as a garnish, it really is best utilized on the rim rather than dusted on top of the drink.
  • I also found caramel to be a welcomed flavor drizzled in the martini glass.
