Oh. My. Gourd. It’s finally fall! There are so many reasons to love this time of the year. The weather is getting slightly colder (yes, even here in Florida the temperature goes down a few degrees), the holidays are approaching and most importantly, it’s pumpkin season. From pumpkin beers to pumpkin spice Irish creams, there is no limit to the delicious recipes that can be made. Save the traditional store-bought pies for your family movie night. This adult-only boozy version will forever change the way you look at pumpkin pie - with its sugar, pumpkin spice and everything nice. Your guests have high expectations as the holidays roll in – so give ‘em pumpkin to talk about.

RumChata Pumpkin Pie


  • 6 ounces RumChata Horchata Con Ron Cream Liqueur

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon salt

Preheat an oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Add RumChata, pumpkin, brown sugar, eggs, sweetened condensed milk, spices and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk until smooth. Pour mixture into pie crust and bake for 15 minutes.

Have you already dusted off that passed-down family pie recipe? No worries, the pumpkin forward recipes don’t stop with pie. Expand your dessert menu by adding a pumpkin spiced cheesecake or donuts with spiked pumpkin cream cheese frosting. Both of these recipes are enhanced by using our Sourced & Certified Michael’s Pumpkin Spice Irish Cream. The Irish cream works as a substitute for traditionally used dairy products while also imparting creamy caramel notes followed by a smooth pumpkin flavor. Not only are these delicious dishes, but the warm orange color will match perfectly with all your fall décor.

Cream liqueurs are not the only spirit that pairs with pumpkin. If you have rum sitting on your bar cart, try this spiked pumpkin bread pudding with ginger crème sauce. This recipe uses either light rum or dark rum, so, choose your favorite to personally enhance the dish. This recipe brings in a ginger aroma that will have your mouth watering from start to finish.

Fall flavors aren’t just limited to pumpkin. If apple is the pie of your eye, try apple pie gelatin cups. These one-bite delights feature all the delicious flavors of a classic apple pie, with a big added bonus – apple bourbon. Looking for a tasty brunch dish to serve your overnight guests? Rum caramel rolls are soft, sweet and packed with Autumn aromas. The wafting smell of cinnamon as the buns bake will have any late sleepers rushing to the table. Use a spiced rum with this recipe for a full flavor experience.
