Perfect for Halloween ragers, Friendsgiving feasts, or a particularly lit pumpkin patch pre-game, these Pumpkin Spice Jello Shots are just what your fall party needs. Fireball Cinnamon Whisky serves as the boozy base, which gives them a potent bite and spicy cinnamon heat. The recipe calls for Supercall’s homemade pumpkin spice syrup (found in our Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latté and Pumpkin Bourbon Punch), which is made with real pumpkin purée, brown sugar, vanilla extract and baking spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. The naturally sweet ingredients are key to making these Jello shots taste truly delicious, and we promise it’s worth your time to make the syrup instead of using an artificial store-bought version. Garnish them with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon for the ultimate pumpkin spice treat that’ll top a basic Starbucks drink any day.

Pumpkin Spice Syrup
1.5 cups water
.75 Cup brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
.5 tsp nutmeg
.5 tsp ground cloves
.5 tsp ginger
1 tbsp vanilla
.25 Cup pumpkin
- In a saucepan, combine water, brown sugar and white sugar and heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
- Turn the heat down to low and add cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir for one minute.
- Whisk in pumpkin puree and simmer for about seven minutes, continuing to whisk until smooth. Be careful not to let it boil or the pumpkin will curdle.
