About This Recipe
If you are a Harry Potter fan and have been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, you will know what pumpkin juice is. But if you haven’t let me tell you all about it.
It is basically a mix of pumpkin puree, apple cider, and orange juice spiked with warm fall spices. The mix is cooked until the flavors come together. You can then serve it either hot or chill it for a few hours before serving.
It is a great drink to serve for theme parties, birthdays, Halloween parties, and even Thanksgiving dinner.
Apple Cider – Apple cider gives this juice a sweet crisp taste that is perfect for the fall season and it also complements the pumpkin well. Buy a can or check out my Slow Cooker Apple Cider recipe to make it from scratch at home.
Pear Nectar – Pear nectar gives a nice flavor and sweetness to the juice. Opt for good-quality nectar for the best taste.
You can also use apricot or peach nectar instead of pear nectar.
Pumpkin Puree – It is the star ingredient of this juice. You can either buy canned pumpkin puree or make it at home using my easy peasy Pumpkin Puree recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Spice – Pumpkin pie spice makes this drink warm and cozy. This should not be missed.
