6 ways to get sh*tfaced on pumpkin spice

Wasted, hammered, shitfaced -- call it whatever you want, but drunkenness can also be paired with pumpkin spice.

Most everyone loves pumpkin pie. A select few people (like this dude) love it so intensely that their entire year revolves around the few months when they can guzzle liquefied pumpkin spice flavouring with a touch of coffee from white and green patterned cups.

What if one wants to apply that pumpkin spice zeal to their hardcore party streak? There’s only one thing left to do: get wasted on pumpkin spice.

Here are six methods to achieve that goal.

The Saskatchewan

Fans of Pilsner, watermelon hats and the green football team will love consuming their pumpkin spice in beer format. Alley Kat Brewing Company from Edmonton produces a limited run of Pumpkin Pie Spiced Ale, which holds a surprisingly high 86 rating on Beer Advocate.

The Cold War

A recent survey shows that seven out of 10 woo-girls at any non-suburban d-bag bar in Canada will order vodka (OK, I admit I just made that up). 
Furthermore, If that bar offers Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka, it would provide a great way to enjoy the taste of pumpkin pie while simultaneously providing the basis for this year’s embarrassing drunk family Thanksgiving story.

Santa’s Coming

Can’t wait until Christmas, but sad that pumpkin spice will be replaced by peppermint and fruitcake? Well, there’s pumpkin egg nog, for everyone who can’t make up their mind between October and December. You can even make it more festive with Pumpkin Face Rum from the Dominican!

The East Coast

Fans of easy drinking nights will go crazy over Ace Pumpkin Hard Cider. Although not made with any actual pumpkin, the mixtures of spices in fermented apple juice tastes just like pumpkin pie! (Or so they claim).

Sex in the City

Put a pumpkin spice cocktail together with the Killimanjaro Pumpkin Spice Cocktail Syrup. Add your favourite alcohol, bitters, ice, and shake for a drink worthy of a Sarah Jessica Parker-esque night out on the town… maybe.

Personal note: I cannot vouch for anything which starts with the phrase “kill-a-man”.

The Bill Cosby

Bill would approve of pumpkin spice pudding from Jell-O. He would further voice his approval with a lively, “fibbity flobberty zippity zoppity” if some bourbon was added into the mix to bring warmth, joy and mild hangovers to the holiday season.
