PUMPKIN SPICE WHITE RUSSIAN
Recipe borrowed from
FOR THE DRINK
2 shots good quality vodka
2 shots pumpkin spice creamer
1 shot coffee liqueur
FOR THE RIM
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp sugar
2 tbls crushed graham crackers
I live outside the US and could not find pumpkin creamer. I used single cream and added cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix the drink ingredients and pour over ice. Wet the rim of your glass and dip in crumb mixture. Garnish with whipped cream and spice.
I also attempted a cheat and used Starbucks pumpkin spice latte instead of cream. Worked just as good as was a bit more pumpkin spicey.
Mix up the Russian's, find a fireplace to cozy next to, and enjoy the cold winter nights!
