...there’s more than one way to savor the iconic fall flavor apart from sipping a $5 beverage on repeat, in your yoga pants, until your bank account runs dry.

No matter your feelings about this 17-year-oldStarbuckscreation, there’s more than one way to savor the iconic fall flavor apart from sipping a $5 beverage on repeat, in your yoga pants, until your bank account runs dry.

Made with real pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and allspice, this 8.1% ABV ice cream packs a punch straight from the pint.

If you're looking for an alternative to basic (and a way to cool off since it's technically still summer), here are three boozy, Pumpkin Spice treats that are anything but:

Jolted Java Shake

Blend a cup of your favorite coffee with two scoops of Hardscoop Pumpkin Spice for a tasty and frozen treat that will have you buzzin’ all day, perfect for cozy Sunday mornings by the fireplace or as an after-dinner dessert for late night entertaining.

Boozy Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Pie

Let your Hardscoop Pumpkin Spice sit on the counter for five minutes, then spread it in an even layer onto your favorite pre-made graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust. Top with whipped cream and chocolate chunks, and freeze overnight before serving! If you wish to turn this sweet spooky for a Halloween party, draw a spider web with chocolate icing on top before freezing.

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Sammies

Sandwich Hardscoop Pumpkin Spice between your favorite cookies (I love chocolate, cinnamon and ginger cookies) and freeze. Try rolling in toppings like chocolate chips, nuts or chopped candied ginger, too, before freezing, or come up with your own creation.
