Recipe: Spiked Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
On cool fall days, there’s nothing like a splash of spiced creamer for your coffee or after-dinner cocktail. And if you’re still riding the iced coffee train on the last of these lingering warm days, this creamer will be must-have too.
This homemade pumpkin spice creamer, spiked with bourbon and flavored with pumpkin purée and spices, turns coffee into an after-dinner treat.
Pumpkin + Cream + Bourbon
This creamer is for those who just can’t get enough pumpkin this time of year — especially people like me who always ask for seconds on the pumpkin pie. There’s actually real pumpkin purée in it, combined with rich heavy cream and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. And it’s perfectly boozy with a hint of bourbon.
The ingredients are gently combined and you can store it in your refrigerator for any time you’re looking for a decadent pick-me-up.
Splash a bit into coffee or very strong black tea to turn either into an after-dinner dessert cocktail. You can also skip the coffee and use this cream in cocktails that use heavy cream such as White Russians and Irish Coffees.
