A Glass of Gourd

You’ll have pumpkin, spice and everything nice with this sweet way to usher in the fall season.




Pumpkin Spice White Russian

INGREDIENTS

For the drink:

  • 3 oz. good quality vodka
  • 3 oz. pumpkin spice creamer
  • 1.5 oz. Kahlúa
  • whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice, to garnish

For the rim:

  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. sugar or sparkling sugar
  • 3 Tbs. crushed graham crackers 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Mix the ingredients for the rim together on a shallow plate. Dip the edge of two glasses in water and then dip into the graham mixture. Press to coat. Set the two glasses aside.
  • Pour vodka, creamer and Kahlúa into a large cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake lightly until combined and cold.
  • Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.

Instead of Kahlúa, which might overpower the pumpkin flavor, use RumChata, which is a great neutral base and really allows for sweeter flavors to pop. I also suggest using crushed biscotti for the rim and securing it with a thin rim of honey—it will stick better than water and the graham mixture and look and taste great.”
