Classic White Russian cocktails get a fall twist with the help of pumpkin spice. Garnished with a cinnamon stick, these Pumpkin Spice White Russians are a delicious, creamy, and seasonal libation.
Pumpkin Spice White Russians
I’m a big fan of White Russians. I especially love when there is a unique variation in their traditional flavor. In the past, I’ve made Peppermint White Russians, Chai Spiced White Russians, and Salted Caramel White Russians. In this post, I’m excited to add another to that list: Pumpkin Spice White Russians.
The recipe for these Pumpkin Spice White Russians came about in part thanks to this new-to-me liqueur called Mozart Pumpkin Spice. They are known for their chocolate liqueur but have branched out to include this new seasonal variety. It’s delicious on its own (you could totally serve it over vanilla ice cream too), and is especially wonderful in this cocktail as well.
Side note: How beautiful are these rocks glasses? They are my new favorite. I linked them below in the “Kitchen Tools I Recommend for this Recipe” section.
What is in a White Russian:
The standard list of ingredients for a classic White Russian is as follows:
- coffee liqueur (I prefer Kahlua)
- half and half (or cream)
For these Pumpkin Spice White Russians, I make two additions:
- Mozart Pumpkin Spice
- cinnamon stick
It’s really that simple. The pumpkin spice liqueur and the cinnamon stick add just the perfect amount of fall flavor and spice without being too much.
