Raise a mug to this delicious Drunken Pumpkin Spiced Latte. This simple recipe is the perfect adult fall drink.
Hey friends, I realized recently that it has been a while since I shared an adult beverage recipe with you. So, in the spirt of fall, pumpkins and all things pumpkin-spiced latte, I am here today with a super simple adult coffee. The Drunken Pumpkin Spice Latte is my adult version of the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte. As you probably know, PSL’s as I like to call them, are quite the rage come fall. I have a few friends who patiently wait for the announcement in early September that they are back on the menu at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts.
I would not consider myself a barista in any sense of the term. In fact, I tend to be a “Plain Jane” when it comes to my coffee (cream and sweetener, thank you.). But this Drunken Pumpkin is pretty darn good. Did I mention how simple it is to make. Yep, just a few ingredients needed to make this kicked up version of the fall classic.
I found this delicious Pumpkin Pie Liqueur while shopping a few weeks ago. Hello friend! So basically, the recipe calls for coffee, Pumpkin Pie Liqueur, pumpkin pie spice and a nice heaping portion of whipped cream. That’s it! Since the liqueur is a cream base, there is no need to add milk or cream. If you can’t find Pumpkin Pie Liqueur, then add a shot of pumpkin vodka along with some milk or cream.
I lined the rim of a coffee mug with some light corn syrup. Dip the rim in some orange sanding sugar to make this drink even more festive. I am a whipped cream kinda gal, so I made sure to add a lot. Sprinkle some extra pumpkin pie spice on top too! Drink up and enjoy!
