Pumpkin Pie Moonshine

How To Make Pumpkin Pie Moonshine

Fall is upon us, the leaves are changing, pumpkins are being displayed, this always makes me crave all things Autumn. This time of year there are always quite a few pumpkin pie moonshine recipes being posted on the Internet so we decided to try our hand at making one of the recipes. All of the pumpkin pie vodka recipes we found called for only 2 cups of vodka. Since we're more or less professional drinkers, we modified the recipe to give it more of a kick (feel free to add less or more depending on how strong you like your drink). We actually made this recipe a few times and tweaked each one to try and improve it. Overall, we're very happy with the results. Though, heads up: this is more of an after dinner drink, not really something you would want to pass around the fire. If you are into desert drinks this will be right up your alley. Here's a video of the final recipe. The details are below.

Version 1: Pumpkin Pie Moonshine (From Scratch)


  • 1 big can pumpkin puree ( make sure it is 100% pure pumpkin) 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (add more if you have a sweet-tooth) 
  • 2 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice mix 
  • 1 can (48 fl. oz.) of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate. 
  • 2 pints of moonshine (substitute vodka if you don't have any shine)


In a blender combine pumpkin puree, brown sugar, 1 can of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate, and 2 pints of moonshine. (real moonshine is best, but vodka/Everclear will work if you don’t have any shine).

Blend the mixture until smooth and then pour the moonshine into mason jars, seal and refrigerate. Add whipped cream to add a bit of sweetness and a great creamy mustache. Shake well before drinking. Keep refrigerated.

Version 2: (Food Hack) Real Pumpkin Pie Flavored Vodka


  • 1 pumpkin pie (store bought or homemade)
  • 2 pints of moonshine or vodka


Add the entire pumpkin pie to a blender along with 2 pints of moonshine or vodka and blend the mixture until smooth. After the mixture is completely blended pour the mixture into mason jars, seal and refrigerate. Feel free to add whipped cream which really ties the drink together. This drink is absolutely incredible and a great way to get a buzz while drinking desert. I recommend making or buying a pumpkin pie and making this drink as I had no expectations and it turned out great.
