Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots

Add a touch of fun to your autumn gatherings with Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots. Thanksgiving, Halloween & game day will be extra tasty!

Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots

I feel like once we enter September there are simply more reasons to gather, at least for my family. We have 3 birthdays to celebrate one in each of September, October, and November. Not to mention the plethora of holiday functions, game days….the list goes on and on.

I’ve found a tasty addition to fall events that I promise will be a new favorite. Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots are delicious, party-perfect, and encompass one of the very best fall flavors, good old pumpkin pie!

If you have adults coming over for any reason during the autumn months, I’m going to suggest you make a double batch of these delicious boozy treats. In fact, I’m considering making some for the adults that show up on Halloween.

Of course, these cocktail minis would be wildly welcomed at Thanksgiving festivities. Especially if your Thanksgiving is anything like ours which includes watching the annual Detroit Lions football game. Undoubtedly the Lions will lose, the jello shots at least make the game tolerable.

What I’ve found interesting since starting in the blogging world way back in 2012 is that pumpkin remains crazy popular all the way through New Year’s Eve. Pumpkin pie desserts and drinks especially. So don’t limit yourself this holiday season, whip up some fun and tasty Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots for each and every occasion.
