Our version of Harry Potter’s Pumpkin Juice is the perfect drink for fall. It has a smooth pumpkin flavor with a little bit of spice and is super tasty!
I tried Pumpkin Juice for the first time last week when we visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando. I knew at first drink that this was something I had to recreate at home!
Our Pumpkin Juice ended up tasting exactly like the one at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! It has a smooth pumpkin flavor with a little bit of spice and is super tasty! I love it cold over ice, but I tried heating some up in a mug with my breakfast this morning and that was amazing too. This would make an awesome drink to have at fall and halloween parties, and would be great to go with your Thanksgiving dinner as well. I’m crazy about it, it is so good. For the recipe SCROLL DOWN to the bottom of the post.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from our trip for all you Harry Potter lovers out there. We had such a fun day at Universal Studios. By far my favorite part was The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’m a huge fan of the books- you could find me at the midnight releases when a new book came out and then you wouldn’t see me again for a few days until I finished reading it. I loved the movies too, and being in Harry Potter World felt like walking right into the story. You absolutely HAVE TO GET the park-to-park passes if you go. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter London/Diagon Alley are in one park and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogwarts/Hogsmeade are in the other park. And you can ride the Hogwarts Express between the two places (it actually looks like you are traveling from London to Hogwarts) if you have the park hopper.
Universal Studios Orlando
Some of my other favorite rides were the water rides Ripsaw Falls and Popeyes- which left us completely soaked! And the Revenge of the Mummy and Rip Ride Rockit were my favorite coasters. I am dying to go back and ride the new Kong ride and the Hulk, both were under construction when we visited.
The parks were getting all set up for Halloween and had fun decorations- we missed it by a day but everyone was so excited about Halloween Horror Nights. We are going to have to come back to see what all the excitement is about!
The Cowfish Restaurant
That night we had the most delicious dinner at The Cowfish. We love sushi and this place was top notch. My favorite appetizer was the truffle fries but my husband loved the blackened tuna nachos. They surprised us with a chef’s 17 piece special that was amazing, and my favorite sushi was one with mango and coconut. The service was fantastic too, we all loved our server- she was so friendly and funny and very attentive. It was so good (you can see some of the pics below) I highly recommend making reservations if you are going to the park. It’s pretty popular so be sure to call in ahead.
Check out all that sushi!
Some of the best truffle fries I have ever had.
You can find the Cowfish right along the City Walk in front of Universal Studios. No ticket needed in this area of the park. 🙂
Thank you again Universal Studios for treating us to a day at your park and a great dinner. It was so much fun, I wish I could go back and do the whole day over again. But for now I can drink my yummy pumpkin juice. 🙂
