‘Tis the season of the pumpkin and as expected, the pumpkin-inspired recipes are coming out of the woodwork these days. I’ll admit that I’m not a pumpkin fanatic. You won’t find me at Starbucks ordering a spiced pumpkin latte with a slice of pumpkin bread and I was probably a kiddo the last time I carved a pumpkin. Although I’m not a fanatic, I do enjoy the flavors that tend to accompany anything pumpkin.
I’ve had the idea to create a fall-inspired remix on the classic White Russian cocktail for a few weeks now, so when I received a bottle of Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka the idea for the Pumpkin Pie White Russian immediately came to mind. Instead of Kahlua I used coffee syrup and for a little added flair I added coffee ice cubes to my Pumpkin Pie White Russian.
The end result was an easy-to-make and boozily, decadent treat for all the pumpkin lovers out there. Check out the recipe below, cheers!
1.5 oz. Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka
4 oz. Milk
3/4 Tbsp. Autocrat Coffee Syrup (Feel free to use any other brand)
In a shaker add milk and coffee syrup. Stir and add Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka. Add ice and shake. Strain contents into a glass already filled with coffee ice cubes*. Enjoy!
(To make coffee ice cubes, add cooled, lightly sweetened coffee to an ice tray. Freeze overnight.)
