Posted at 8:00 AM, Sep 07, 2019

A pumpkin spice latte may be the best drink to start your Halloween morning, but Halloween night — once trick-or-treating is done and it’s time to put the kids to bed and eat their candy (don’t pretend you don’t do it!) — calls for a pumpkin cocktail!

Malibu Rum has concocted just what we need to wind down on Halloween night — a Malibu pumpkin colada. The recipe calls for Malibu rum and a handful of ingredients you might already have on hand: pineapple juice, coconut cream, lime juice and pumpkin puree or juice.

Whipping up this cocktail couldn’t be any easier. Take a look at the full recipe:

Malibu Pumpkin Colada


50 ml Malibu Original

75 ml Pineapple juice

50 ml Coconut cream

10 ml Fresh lime juice

10 ml Pumpkin puree or juice


Fill a shaker with ice cubes.

Add Malibu, coconut cream, lime juice, pumpkin puree/juice and pineapple juice.

Shake and strain into a chilled glass (pumpkin cup) filled with ice cubes.

If you can’t wait until Halloween to give this one a try, it’s also perfect for the end of summer and beginning of fall, since it includes pineapple juice, coconut cream and lime juice — all summer flavors!

Not enough boozy pumpkin for you? Captain Morgan has a pumpkin spice rum so you can get your drink on with nothing more than a shot glass!

According to the brand, it tastes like fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and other autumnal spices mixed with Caribbean rum. So, basically, a PSL with an extra kick.

If you need yet another Halloween treat after the kiddos are in bed, Jeni’s ice cream will reportedly release a pumpkin cake roll ice cream in September made with buttercup pumpkins grown exclusively for Jeni’s.

The pumpkins are used to make a pumpkin ice cream that is then swirled with spiced sweet cream cheese ice cream and cake chunks.
