Cocktails: Pumpkin Spice White Russian
Northwest boaters have a lot to be thankful for; beautiful waters, awe-inspiring mountain backdrops, great fishing, and a tight-knit community. So, why not raise a glass in thanks this November with a delicious fall treat? Hopefully you’re not too burnt out on pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin pies to give this Pumpkin Spice White Russian a try. This take on the White Russian swaps the standard coffee liqueur for the fall-themed Pumpkin Spice Kahlúa and adds a hint of cinnamon. Mix one of these up for an after-Thanksgiving dinner night cap, or any time you need a little autumn pick-me-up.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce Pumpkin Spice Kahlúa
- 1 ounce half-and-half (or cream)
- Dash of cinnamon
Make the Drink
Mix the vodka, Pumpkin Spice Kahlúa, and your choice of heavy cream or half-in-half into a short, large tumbler glass. Stir ingredients together and add a dash of cinnamon. Experiment with standard coffee liqueur and pumpkin spice syrup if Pumpkin Spice Kahlúa is not available. To add additional holiday spirit to your drink, honey the rim of a short, large tumbler glass and dip it in orange and yellow sprinkles.
