A great Thanksgiving Pumpkin Punch Recipe that will please a crowd!
We don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving is one our favorite holidays of year! I am always just excited to eat a delicious meal, have all of my favorite flavors together and hang with family! This Thanksgiving Punch is invited to the party this year!
This awesome Pumpkin Punch can really be served throughout the fall season though. You can serve it any time, and it makes an especially great Halloween Punch, or on Thanksgiving day. With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all grouped together within three months it can be difficult to have drink choices. Friend and family get togethers seem non stop, and we need some great recipes to make for loved ones! An easy go to recipe that has fall flavors is a great choice.

Pumpkin Spice Everything!
We think there’s something magical about fall. The leaves changing color, cool evenings are spend around the fire pit. And our favorite…pumpkin everything! I’m talking Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Coffee, Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies, Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars, Pumpkin Harvest Cocktail! It’s really the best time of year!
This fall we wanted to make a delicious punch we could serve friends and family at our Halloween and Thanksgiving gatherings. We love drinks we can make in large batches, especially in a punch bowl! It’s great for easy serving and this punch fits the bill, plus it’s pumpkin! Try our Thanksgiving Champagne Cocktail, too!
We called this Thanksgiving punch because it’s hard to find a good cold punch to serve along with Thanksgiving dinner but this one nails it. We seem to have warm Thanksgivings here, it’s rare when it’s super cold, and when you cram a whole bunch of people in one house it gets even warmer. So a cool, delicious and refreshing punch is the way to go!
What Ingredients are Needed for the Thanksgiving Punch?
- Pumpkin Puree
- Lemon Juice
- Cinnamon Syrup (recipe below)
- Apple Cider
- Ginger Beer
This pumpkin punch can certainly be made year round, but it definitely has an autumn feel. This really is an easy punch recipe, and goes together lickety split!
Our boozy components in this pumpkin punch are bourbon and brandy. We then made a cinnamon simple syrup to help balance the unsweetened pumpkin. (Make sure to not use pumpkin pie filling, only regular canned pumpkin!). The cinnamon flavor really brought out all those happy fall thoughts every time we took a sip. Added to this, and for a little sour we added lemon juice and ginger beer.
We also added apple cider, because well, fall. And the flavor just screams fall celebrations. This punch looks so festive with fresh edible flower garnishes, along with orange slices and spices floating on top. It tastes so refreshing and full of fall!
This Pumpkin Punch for a crowd is just way too fun and tasty. It’s sure to steal the show at any party, especially Thanksgiving! The only thing better than enjoying a great slice of Pumpkin Pie during the holidays is being able to sip on one too! Try our Pineapple Wine Punch for all year sipping, or a non-alcoholic punch with our Pineapple Orange Sherbet Punch Recipe!
