3 Not-So-Basic Ways to Savor Pumpkin Spice This Season with Hardscoop



Love it or hate it a latte, pumpkin spice season is here. No matter your feelings about this 17-year-old Starbucks creation, there’s more ways than one to savor this iconic fall flavor apart from sipping a $5 beverage on repeat in your yoga pants until your bank account runs dry.  


Hardscoop is handcrafted, artisan alcohol ice cream and sorbet and is available in your local Charlotte, NC grocery or liquor store. With a variety of flavors, the seasonal Pumpkin Spice has just returned for a limited time.

Made with real pumpkin and the ultimate spice combo nobody can argue with (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and allspice), this 8.1% ABV ice cream is delicious spooned straight from the pint. If you are looking to step away from the basic bubble as far as possible, add these three boozy treats to your ice cream arsenal for a fun fall that is anything-but-basic: 

Jolted Java Shake

Blend a cup of your favorite coffee with two scoops of Hardscoop Pumpkin Spice for a tasty and caffeine-filled 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 and spread in an even layer onto your favorite premade 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 (we love chocolate, cinnamon or ginger cookies) and freeze. Feel free to also roll in toppings like chocolate chips, nuts or chopped candied ginger before freezing.
