What Is Pumpkin Spice?

If it seems like pumpkin spice-flavored foods and drinks are suddenly everywhere, you might be surprised to know that the history of pumpkin spice long predates the launch of the ubiquitous Starbucks pumpkin spice latte in 2003. The term “pumpkin spice” previously referred to a combination of spices used to flavor pumpkin pie, including cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. Today, pumpkin spice refers to pumpkin flavoring that is combined with these five spices, and it is seen by many as being the quintessential fall flavor. Fortunately, incorporating pumpkin spice into your next event is a snap thanks to the many options for food and drinks.

This pumpkin apple cider can be served hot or cold and is made from pure apple cider, fresh squeezed orange juice, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice protein powder, cinnamon, and orange zest. It’s easy to mix up a batch for your next fall holiday event!
