The onslaught of pumpkin-spice-everything ushers in fall earlier and earlier every year, and it’s all thanks to the pumpkin spice latté. The drink, found everywhere from Starbucks to McDonald’s, is, clearly, massively popular—but that doesn’t mean it is without its flaws. For one, it is way too sweet. Secondly, there’s rarely any actual pumpkin involved. And finally, there’s no alcohol in it. So we fixed it.
Our superior version of the now iconic autumn beverage is made with real pumpkin, bourbon, cozy baking spices, creamy Baileys and fresh coffee, made from hand-ground whiskey barrel-aged coffee beans. Topped off with freshly whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon, it’s the perfect hot cocktail to warm you up after a long day of hayrides, leaf-pile jumping and apple picking.
