How to Make the Best Fall Cocktail: A Pumpkin Spice White Russian

While I’m not a huge fan of cocktails, I do love making them for special occasions.

And this one is perfect for a cozy fall dinner or Halloween party. But it’s also a fun drink to serve at a casual, low-key gathering too.

I’m even thinking of making this White Russian fall cocktail for Thanksgiving this year because it is a real crowd-pleaser.

There’s just something about a specialty drink at a dinner party that makes the evening seem more special, am I right?

But be careful, cause this one will knock your socks off! It can quickly sneak up on you because it tastes so good!

From the sweet and spicy rim of the glass to the creamy cocktail beverage, this one is sure to keep you toasty on a crisp fall evening.

It’s pretty strong too, so a little goes a long way.

And it’s one of the best fall drinks because it is so easy to make and looks like you put hours into preparing it!

Ingredients For This White Russian Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

Here’s what you need to make the best pumpkins spice cocktail for fall.

If you want to sweeten this white russian recipe up, try using caramel and crushed graham crackers on the rim instead of honey and ginger snaps.

I’ve made it both ways and prefer the spice of the ginger snaps with the lighter sweet taste of the honey.

And let me tell you that the type of ginger snap cookies you use matters. Some ginger snap recipes are spicier and have a softer texture than others.

So make sure you taste-test those ginger snaps well ahead of time. hahaha.

I prefer a spicier, softer textured cookie for the rim. But it’s all a matter of personal preference.

Some also like to use a pumpkin pie spice creamer instead of heavy cream, but for me, it’s a little too sweet so I prefer using heavy cream or half and half.

And if you want a lower-calorie or lactose-free option, you can make this fall cocktail with almond creamer.

There’s a pumpkin spice version of almond creamer that would work well in this recipe too.
