Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Yield: 4 cups

Prep Time: 10 minutes, plus cooling time and 2 days steeping

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes, plus cooling time and 2 days steeping


  • 1 teaspoon whole clove

  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice

  • ¾ teaspoon white pepper

  • 4 cinnamon sticks

  • 1 whole nutmeg

  • One 2-inch piece ginger, thinly sliced

  • 2½ cups vodka

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 cup water


  1. In a small skillet, toast the clove, allspice, white pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg over medium heat until fragrant, 2 minutes. Transfer to a sealable quart jar with the ginger and pour in the vodka. Seal and steep for 2 days, shaking the jar every 12 hours.

  2. After 2 days, strain out the solids and transfer them to a small saucepan with the sugar and water. Bring to simmer and cook until the sugar dissolves, 2 minutes. Let cool completely.

  3. Strain the syrup into the jar with the infused vodka and shake to combine. Serve on the rocks, in a cup of coffee or stirred into your favorite cocktails.
