Saturday Sip: Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate

It’s fall! And that means warm drinks, cozy blankets, and cuddling by the fire. This week, in honor of the autumn season, I’ve found a recipe for white hot chocolate with a pumpkin spin. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate


  • 4-5 cups whole milk
  • 12 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger


In a heavy saucepan, combine 2 cups of milk, white chocolate, and cocoa powder. Cook over medium heat, whisking periodically, until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is well combined. Whisk in the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, and ginger. Add the remaining milk, 1 cup at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.

If desired, serve topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of nutmeg. Just be sure not to fill the mugs too full before adding the whipped cream, or you might have some overflow.

Saturday Sip: Pink Lemonade Margarita

Happy Saturday everyone!

This week a certain drink that was posted on another blog caught my eye and I’ve decided to spread the word. I haven’t tried this one, but it sounds delicious. So I would like to thank the Girls Guide To blog for bringing this Pink Lemonade Margarita recipe to my attention. Let me know what y’all think!


Pink Lemonade Margaritas

1 (12 ounce) can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 (12  ounce) cans of cold water (just use the empty pink lemonade can)
1 (12 ounce) can of tequila
½ (12 ounce) can of Grand Marnier
Ice cubes (I like to use crushed ice)
Salt to rim the glasses
1 lime, wedged

Pour the (thawed) frozen lemonade concentrate into a pitcher, and fill the can with cold water. Pour into the pitcher and repeat twice for a total of 3 cans of water.

Fill the same can with tequila, and pour that into the pitcher. Fill about half of the can with Grand Marnier, and pour it into the pitcher.

Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Or blend mixture with ice to make a frozen version. Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses with a lime wedge!
