Have you ever wondered how to make a cinnamon sugar rim for your pumpkin beer? It’s so easy! Now that fall is here I feel comfortable admitting that I’ve been making these at least once a week since before Labor Day.
Last year I went to a local bar and ordered a Pumking beer. They served it with the most amazing cinnamon sugar rim. I probably ordered 3 of them and rang up a pretty large bar tab. This year, I’m saving money by making them at home with all sorts of different pumpkin beers. ,I’m happy to report that they taste just as good for way less money!

This is a sure fire way to impress guests without much effort. If you’ve ever created a rim for any sort of cocktail then you know just how easy this is to make.
Start by making your sugar mixture. For pumpkin beer, I like to use the same cinnamon sugar ratio that I use on my pumpkin muffins,
Cinnamon Sugar Mixture for Pumpkin Beer
- 1/4 C. sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Mix the sugar and spices together and put in a wide bowl or shallow plate.
Most directions for rimmed glasses start by instructing you to wet the rim with water, simple syrup or a sugary juice. I like to start with syrup. I don’t even dilute it. No, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just so happen to like Aunt Jemima. I’m also a huge fan of the pure maple syrup at Trader Joe’s. No matter what type of syrup you choose, it will be delicious.
All you do is put a little bit of syrup on a paper towel and wipe it along the rim of the glass. Then you dip it into the sugar mixture.
Enjoy with pumpkin chili for dinner and pumpkin muffins for dessert!
Do you love rimmed glasses as much as I do? I can’t get enough. I’ve even started making them for cocktails. Stay tuned for a mocktail recipe with a cinnamon sugar rim coming up soon!
