Mixologist’s Recipe: Pumpkin Juice

If you follow me or Castles and Cooks on Twitter, then this recipe may not be that new to you. Sometimes flashes of inspiration just happen and after spending months thinking about the flavors of that delicious bottle of Pumpkin Juice I had while at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I finally figured it out.

The trick is to simmer the juice over heat so the pumpkin flavors infuse with the rest of the juice and further breakdown, giving the juice a smoother consistency and much better flavor. This is definitely a drink that would make Dumbledore proud.

Pumpkin Juice

Makes around 48 ounces of juice

1 Can of Pumpkin
1 Bottle of Apple Juice (32 ounces)
1 Bottle of Apricot Juice (16 ounces)
3 Sticks of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

A large cauldron

Fill the pot with everything and let it warm up over a medium heat. Still regularly until the pumpkin dissolves into the liquid. Allow it to cool and serve chilled (though you can serve it warm too).
