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.
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!

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