White Russian, Meet Pumpkin Spice
Mix the classic cocktail with the flavors of fall for a delicious dessert nightcap.
Don’t you just love fall? It is my favorite season because I finally start feeling some cool temperatures and I can enjoy outside without having to be near water or spontaneously combusting. Also, pumpkins!
A few weekends ago I had a little fun in the kitchen putting together some new cocktails, and this Pumpkin Spice White Russian was remarkable. I like to embrace the fall season by coming up with fun and different ways to infuse pumpkin into my cooking and cocktails, and this is my new go-to autumn nip.
Most White Russians are made using three simple ingredients — vodka, coffee liqueur and milk or cream over ice. They are so easy and perfect for those who enjoy sipping their coffee drinks. This is definitely a dessert cocktail. It’s so rich creamy smooth and satisfying, who needs cake?
If you are watching your waistline, reduce the calories of the drink by using the Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer instead of the regular one. You can also omit the whipped cream topping, but I don’t know why you would want to do that. The vodka and cream have a way of putting me right to sleep, so enjoying one of these after a big dinner is ideal for me.
