This Pumpkin twist on the popular kahlua cocktail is a perfect after dinner drink or comfy drink between friends on a chilly Fall evening.

We Love our traditional White Russian Recipe. Made with kahlua, vodka and cream its a smooth, rich coffee cocktail that hits the happy hour spot any time of year.

Adding Pumpkin spice Liqueur and changing out the vodka for a whipped cream flavor says Fall in a big way.

Rim the glass with a sweet pumpkin spice blend and add a dash of pumpkin spice on the finished kahlua masterpiece.

This is the booze we used to make our pumpkin spice liqueur drink.

  1. you can choose whatever brands you enjoy for your pumpkin spice liqueur. Both Kahlua and Baileys make pumpkin spice liqueur.
  2. We used smirnoff whipped cream vodka and highly recommend it for the added creamy flavor. It really enhances this cocktail.
  3. There really is no replacing the kahlua in my opinion. Kahlua is my favorite coffee liqueur. It just has a flavor that is just right for the White Russian.

Notes on the remaining ingredients:

  • The heavy cream could be replaced with half and half or even whole milk to reduce the calories in this Fall cocktail recipe.
  • We used pumpkin pie spice and sugar to rim the glass. This is optional but really adds to the Fall Vibe and flavor.
  • We didn’t use cinnamon sticks but you could serve your drink with a cinnamon stir stick if you wish.
  • The simple syrup is only used to wet the rim of the glass. The sugar spice blend will stick to the syrup.

How to Rim The Glass:

Here is the method for rimming your glass with sugar and pumpkin spice seasoning. Rimming the glass is optional but gives your white russian drink a cozy fall feel.
