Monday Munchies: Pumpkin Juice

Written By: Word Nerd - Sep• 19•11

A perfect drink for fall- sweet, spicy and (don’t tell) nutritious.  You can serve it hot or cold, it is delicious either way.

4 cups apple juice

1- 15 ounce can pumpkin puree (not pie filling!)

2 teaspoons ginger paste (or fresh grated ginger)

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/2 nutmeg, freshly grated (about 1 tablespoon of ground spice)

1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

1- 12 ounce can lemon-line soda (like Sprite)

Whisk together apple juice, pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper in a large pan over medium heat.  Bring to a simmer and hold for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Slowly stir lemon-lime soda into cooled mixture.  Strain and serve.
