Even avid beer drinkers need a good cocktail every now and then. And this pumpkin apple shandy is the perfect option.

With only three ingredients, it’s simple and quick to make. You’ll need pumpkin beer, bourbon, and apple cider – that’s it!

Of course, it’s not technically a ‘shandy’ since there’s no lemon-lime soda (a real shandy is beer with Sprite or 7-Up poured in the top to lighten it up).

So to make it more classic, try using sparkling apple cider instead. That way, you still get the bubbles!

Ingredients: pumpkin beer, apple cider, bourbon

I often choose a milkshake instead of dessert, and this boozy pumpkin spice dream has been calling my name for weeks!

(Use frozen bananas instead of ice to make it extra creamy and sweet!)

Then, drizzle as much caramel as you can handle into the glass before pouring in the shake.

Top it with more caramel, and get ready to fall in love.

Ingredients: caramel, ice, vanilla ice cream, pumpkin spice liqueur, whipped cream vodka, pumpkin pie spice
