Pumpkin Crown

It’s October already! Holy cats, this year has flown by. I love the month of October for a few reasons. Halloween, of course, cooler weather, and it’s like the unofficial start to the holiday season. Woohoo! Now, I love a good seasonal brew, but hubby isn’t always too keen on the flavored beers I bring home. Ha! To beef them up a little I thought, why not add a shot of whiskey? That always works, right? Well, it definitely did in this case. I love the smoothness of Crown Royal with the slightly sweet pumpkin ale.

I mean, Octoberfest runs all month long right? So why not celebrate it to its fullest potential, and enjoy a different drink almost every day of the month! There are some fabulous recipes to choose from, and the many ideas that can come from “if I mix this, what will happen?” There are so many different reasons to love this month, and we can help you celebrate and accomplish those Octoberfest goals!

Pumpkin Crown


Fill your glass with ice and add a shot of Crown. You can always use your favorite whiskey or bourbon. Crown Royal is really great in this drink.


Add your pumpkin beer on top and there you have it, the super simple Pumpkin Crown. Strong enough for a man, smooth enough for a woman. 😉


I hope you enjoy a Pumpkin Crown sometime this Fall. This drink is great when paired with a warm hearty dinner of brats and potatoes. In fact, there’s a recipe on the blog now for that very recipe! Go check out my One-Pan Oktoberfest dinner. It goes GREAT with this Pumpkin Crown. 😉
