With Thanksgiving past, and Christmas looming, the flavors of fall still linger and mix with the onset of winter. Pumpkins and gourds are in abundance. Ginger and cinnamon scents fill the air as cookies bake, while the crunch of fallen leaves give way to pine scented boughs and trees. And pumpkin spice flavored <insert anything here> is still king.
While you are rushing about grocery shopping, house cleaning, gift buying and wrapping, you may need a few moments to yourself amidst the chaos. Especially if you will be hosting or staying with family (for multiple days), an adult beverage is always welcome. With the ubiquitous pumpkin spice creamer, plus just a dash of two other players, you can whip up an amazingly delicious sugar-bomb of holiday spirit! Careful, this stuff is so good, it’s easy to lose track of how many you’ve had!
This recipe makes enough for 4 shots, or 1 large glass over ice. Feel free to whip them up as needed, or make a large container full and keep it in the fridge. You know… just in case…
- 1 shot cake flavored vodka
- 1 shot Khalua
- 2 ounces pumpkin spice creamer
Combine all ingredients in a glass over ice and mix. Strain into shot glasses, or drink as a beverage. I just made up a double batch, and keep it in the refrigerator in the mason jar the creamer was originally. I make my own flavored creamer occasionally; you can follow this recipe from The Nourishing Gourmet, or if you’re vegan try this one from Girl Makes Food.
