Pumpkin Cocktail

I have a thing for hot drinks. They’re just so cozy and comforting, especially when the nights start getting chilly during the fall season. I also have a thing for pumpkin pie, so when pumpkin season rolls around, I go ALL in on pumpkin recipes. This Hot Pumpkin Cocktail is the perfect combination of the two, and it is so delicious!

It’s a beautiful combination of pumpkin, Irish Cream, pumpkin pie spice, and milk. Serve it warm for the most comforting cocktail you’ve ever had!

This is the perfect thing to sip on after a big Thanksgiving dinner, or any time you want to combine your nightcap and dessert into one. The best dessert drink ever!

Make this Pumpkin Pie Cocktail for a delicious after dinner drink!

How to Make this Pumpkin Pie Cocktail

This fall cocktail is the easiest thing to make. It’s the perfect dessert cocktail, so you can get your sweet tooth fix and after dinner drink mixed into one!

Ingredients & Substitutes:

  • Milk (I like almond milk for this recipe, but you can use any milk you prefer)
  • Cinnamon Vanilla Bailey’s (substitute regular Irish Cream if needed and add a bit of cinnamon)
  • Pumpkin Pie Vodka (if you can’t find this flavor, vanilla vodka works too)
  • Pumpkin Puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice (here’s my homemade recipe)

How to Make it:

  1. Bring the almond milk, Irish cream, and vodka to a boil in a large pot
  2. Once boiling, turn down heat to low and stir in pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Stir quickly to incorporate.
  3. Serve warm, topped with cool whip or whipped cream, and garnish with a little more pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.

Use regular whipped cream or try our Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream for even more flavor!
