Not that you need an excuse to enjoy pumpkin juice. This non-alcoholic drink is the perfect blend of apple cider, apricot nectar, pumpkin puree, and spices. It's a refreshing, cool drink with spicy fall flavors that's always a hit at special events.

It's a must for any Harry Potter-themed party, including birthdays and Halloween! Serve it alongside 3-Ingredient Harry Potter Golden Snitch Truffles, no-bake Pumpkin Dip, chocolate frogs, and Halloween pasta!

I've seen many variations around the internet. But this copycat definitely passes the taste test. I know because, living in central Florida, we've had more than our share of this famous drink from the theme park.

Here's what you need to make pumpkin juice that anyone from Hogwarts would approve of:

  • Fresh Apple Cider. Apple juice and apple juice concentrate can be used. But, we really felt that the flavor profile was different than the original.
  • Apricot, pear, or peach nectar. These can be found at most grocery stores in little juice box-size containers or small cans. Apricot nectar is the best one to use if you're trying to mimic the one you buy at the park. But all of them are delightful.
  • Apple Pie or Pumpkin Pie spice. We are partial to the apple pie blend, but either one will work. See a DIY version of apple pie below.

Below are the ingredients listed on a bottle purchased at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions.

Apple Pie Spice

If you don't want to buy apple pie spice, make your own blend by combining:

  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon allspice
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

This will yield more than you need. Save the rest for a second batch!


Pumpkin juice is simple to prepare. Just add all of the ingredients to a blender and combine! An immersion blender also works well. Or, you can stir it really, really well by hand.

It's enjoyed cold, so add a few ice cubes if you want.

After a while, the ingredients may begin to settle. If this happens, re-stir to combine everything.

Optional garnishes: Cinnamon sticks, apple slices

Ask someone if they've ever tried this drink, and you've opened the door to discussions about Harry Potter, favorite books, Orlando, and which house you would be in at Hogwarts. Try it!

Storage, Make Ahead

Make pumpkin juice ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for up to a week. Stir to recombine before serving.

Pumpkin juice tastes a lot like a variation of apple cider which is the main ingredient. It's fruitier, and the profile changes depending upon the type of nectar used. It's also a bit spicier.

Is pumpkin juice actually good?

Most people are surprised at how delicious pumpkin juice is the first time they try it. It does have some nutritional benefits from the added pumpkin and fruit juices. However, it's important to keep an eye on the sugar content.

The official beverage from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter can only be found in the theme park.

Can you serve pumpkin juice warm?

Harry Potter's pumpkin juice is traditionally served cold. However, it would be fantastic warmed and served with cinnamon sticks.
