Have you ever wondered how to make a cinnamon sugar rim for your pumpkin beer? It’s so easy! Now that fall is almost here, I feel comfortable admitting that I’ve been making these at least once a week.


How to make a cinnamon sugar rim for pumpkin beer

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

Step 1. Mix the sugar and spices together and put in a wide bowl or shallow plate.

Step 2: Rim the glass with syrup

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 happened to have Aunt Jemima on hand when I took these pictures. I’m also a huge fan of the pure maple syrup at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. No matter what type of syrup you choose, it will be delicious.

You can even just use water if you are in a pinch.


All you do is put a little bit of syrup on a paper towel and wipe it along the rim of the glass.

Step 3: Dip your glass into the cinnamon sugar mixture. 

It’s that easy!
