Pumpkin Spice Latte Cocktail – Festive Fall Cocktails

Filed in: Recipes

Delicious Fall Cocktails - Pumpkin Spice Latte Cocktail Recipe

Let’s brew up some fall cocktails, shall we?

This is the perfect fall cocktail to get all the fall feels going and even has the coffee taste of a real pumpkin spice latte. I served this drink cold but it would also be delicious slightly warmed. Pick your preference! Read below for the recipe for this Pumpkin Spice Latte Cocktail.

Do you Like Pumpkin Spice Lattes? Then you will love this Pumpkin Spice Latte Cocktail!

Honestly, for years I wasn’t interested in even trying a pumpkin spice latte. I guess I am one of those people that likes to avoid things with any sort of hype around them (sorry?!). That all changed this year when my boyfriend started working at a cafe. He told me I should ‘give the pumpkin spice latte a try’, as I stood at the coffee bar asking what I should get (as I do). At first I gave him a look as if to say ‘oh please’ with an eye roll. But, hesitantly, I gave it a try. Well, Guys, no surprise here…that thing is delicious! While I have still not had one from Starbucks, my one pumpkin spice latte made me understand the hype. Last year (before understanding the hype) I made a pumpkpin spice milkshake. This year I immediately got thinking about fall cocktails and how I could make this crowd favourite into an alcoholic drink. From that was born the pumpkin spice latte cocktail! This would be the perfect beverage to serve at Thanksgiving Drinks -it will definitely get everyone feeling festive! Enjoy, this is good!

Thanksgiving Drinks - Pumpkin Spice Latte Cocktail Recipe

To make 2 Pumpkin Spice Latte cocktails:

  • 5 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 ounce kahlua
  • 1 ounce baileys
  • teaspoon pumpkin spice

First, whisk together the water, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice in a glass until it is consistently mixed. Combine the pumpkin mixture with the Baileys and Kalhua in a martini shaker with ice. Finish it of and shake until cold and serve over ice.

Side Note: What’s in Pumpkin Pie Spice?

All this pumpkin spice hype got me wondering, ‘What’s in pumpkin pie spice, anyway?’. So naturally, I did a little research. Just in case you too are asking yourself the same question, I thought I’d share my learnings here! It is super easy to make if you have the necessary spices on hand.

Pumpkin spice is made up largely of cinnamon but it also includes nutmeg, ginger, and ground cloves.

The ratio for pumpkin spice is: 8:2:2:1 in order of the above list. So, for example:

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmet
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Hopefully that answers the burning question of: ‘What’s in pumpkin pie spice?!’. It did for me!
