I shared these recipes on social media Thanksgiving weekend, but I loved them both so much I wanted to post them here.
Homemade pumpkin spice creamer is a snap to make and tastes a thousand times better than the store-bought kind. It has real pumpkin and tasty spices from Moburts, my local spice shop.
The recipe for Pumpkin Spice White Russian was inspired by a visit to Wheat State Distilling in Wichita on the #KSCornTour this fall. I think even the Big Lebowski would approve!
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer
1 pint half and half
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Microwave at 30-second intervals for 1 to 3 minutes until heated through and blended. Mix in the remaining ingredients, place in a jar and shake to make sure it is well blended. Store in fridge.
Pumpkin Spice White Russian
1 shot Wheat State Distilling Wheat Vodka
1 shot coffee liquor
1 to 2 shots pumpkin spice coffee creamer
Pour all of the ingredients into a rock or highball glass over ice. Stir to combine. Can also be made in larger quantities in a pitcher to serve at a holiday gathering.
