Are you ready to make your Pumpkin Cooler? Let’s make sure that you have what you need:

Supplies needed:

  • large pumpkin – I bought mine at Sam’s Club. The pumpkins there were massive which allowed me to fit several drinks inside
  • knife
  • recommended – gloves
  • pumpkin scoop, or large spoon
  • bag of ice
  • drinks – canned or bottles


  • On the day of the party, cut the top of a pumpkin off and scoop out the pumpkin seeds
  • *you can separate the seeds to make Candied  pumpkin seeds for a fun party snack
  • Clean the inside of the pumpkin by scooping out the seeds and goop
  • To give yourself more room inside the pumpkin for drinks, you can carve some of the flesh away from the outside
  • When you are ready to serve drinks, add ice and drinks
  • *the pumpkin will be heavy. Be sure to have your pumpkin where you think you’ll want it for the party before filling it with ice and drinks
