This easy pumpkin eggnog is an autumn take on the classic winter cocktail, and is ready start-to-finish in about 10 minutes.
Do you love eggnog?
The thick, creamy drink is one of the husband’s favorites.
When he sees the cartons start to appear in the dairy aisle in late fall, his eyes light up, and I know the eggnog guzzling is about to begin.
If you too are craving eggnog cocktails, this is one of my favorite versions.
This particular drink isn’t just easy: it’s even BETTER than regular old eggnog because, well — because it has pumpkin!

Should I Use Homemade or Store-Bought Eggnog?
I prefer it homemade, but as long as you love the flavor of your store-bought ‘nog, it’ll work just fine.
Can I Skip the Bourbon?
Eggnog is tasty with or without the alcohol.
What Can I Do with Leftover Pumpkin Eggnog?
If you want to make it really decadent, try blending it with some vanilla ice cream and make it into a milkshake!
We also love eggnog lattes and this eggnog French toast bake.
Making Pumpkin Eggnog
All you need is eggnog, pumpkin purée, bourbon and a little bit of nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice.
Use an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer with the whisk attachment to whisk the ingredients together until it’s foamy.
Try swapping homemade pumpkin purée for canned! Make this Instant Pot Pumpkin Purée or use your oven for Roasted Pumpkin Purée!
Next, pour the mixture into glasses and sip away on this tasty fall cocktail!

My mom always made homemade eggnog every year, so I have find memories of it. And, my husband is like yours- he loves the milky drink. Thanks for the recipe; I look forward to making this version soon.
I hope you enjoy!
What a perfect holiday drink! Love the combo of pumpkin and eggnog- they were made for each other.
YUM! I just saw eggnog at the store, and yes it’s super creepy with the weird ingredients.
Right!? And you only need a few for something delicious to happen 😉

Pumpkin and eggnog in the one recipe? Woo hoo! Love it! I get all excited too when I see the eggnog cartons make their appearance around this time of year. That stuff is so good! And a shot or two of bourbon? What a perfect holiday cocktail 🙂
This is perfect for a chilly day or evening, curled up by a roaring fire. I want this now.
Thanks! Enjoy 🙂
This combination sounds incredible! How perfect for Fall. I’d drink a whole pitcher of this:)

As crazy as it seems. . .I don’t think I have ever had egg nog. I guess it’s because I always think of it as an overindulgent drink . . .and since I probably already stuffed my face with a couple of trays of cookies. . .egg nog gets shunned away like the evil step child (i’m weird like that with indulgent liquids). That said, perhaps this is the year of the egg nog for me (at a minimum. . .perhaps I can sneak it into a treat to get past me weird mental quirks). 😉
LOL.. if nothing else, dip some bread in it and make French Toast!!! (recipe coming soon! lol)
This sounds delicious! I love pumpkin!

As a scientist, I will just say that the alcohol in your drink is not enough to kill salmonella. But I’m not going to let that stop me from making this – I am team Raw Egg all the way. I just acknowledge the risk I’m taking. 😉
Well that sounds like a good reason to use extra bourbon! 😉
