Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte – make your own pumpkin spice latte at home…and spike it with vanilla vodka and Fireball! This is the perfect fall cocktail to warm you up. Make it for one or for a crowd in the crockpot.
Well, now that it’s officially fall is it acceptable to post hot drinks and all things pumpkin spice? I feel like the last month has been consumed with things for my birthday party and now that the party is over I can focus on my favorite season of the year: PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON.
It’s finally starting to cool down at night here and I’m thinking about wanting to make hot drinks all day and evening instead of just in the morning. (Notice I said cool down at night; this week it’s supposed to hit 90°. *eyeroll*)
The drink we all know and love is back in the coffee shop but have you seen how much it costs these days? And the calories? Um, no thank you. Instead, I make my own pumpkin spice coffee at home…and when I make it at home I can add alcohol. #winning
A Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte is the perfect fall cocktail to warm you from the inside out.
Make it for yourself or throw the ingredients in a crockpot and make it for your next fall gathering.
Now that my favorite creamer is back in the grocery store, I’m making pumpkin spice coffee all day long every day. And with this spiked version you add some extra flavor with vanilla vodka and cinnamon whiskey.
Have you ever tried cinnamon whiskey (aka Fireball, like the song)? It’s actually so good and tastes like a melted red hot candy. I love soaking my drunken cherries in it and a friend of mine tells me to try adding it to hard cider because it tastes like a cinnamon roll.
For now, I’m adding it to coffee along with International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer. It’s my favorite fall flavor! The combination of the cinnamon, creamer, and vanilla vodka makes this a delicious fall hot cocktail. Every sip makes me crave a fireplace and a movie and a nice warm fleece blanket.
I love making these just for myself using a single cup coffee maker, but I’ve also thrown all the ingredients in a crockpot and kept it warm for hours during a party. It’s the perfect way for us football wives to get through Sunday, just saying.
What are your favorite creamers? I cannot wait to get all my seasonal ones…and add them all to my coffee with some vodka. 🙂
