If you feel like going the extra mile for your pumpkin pie mocktail, you can roast your own pumpkin and then puree the flesh, making a homemade pumpkin puree. Be sure to roast a small, sugar pumpkin which is the best kind to eat.
Add a splash of apple cider to give the drink even more fall flavor. Apple and pumpkin go surprisingly well together.
