Caramel Pumpkin Spice White Russian is the perfect Fall cocktail! Perfectly spiced pumpkin butter is swirled together with heavy cream and poured into a decadent mix of coffee liqueur and caramel vodka. The result: a Fall cocktail recipe that is luscious and loaded full of creamy pumpkin spice goodness.
What is a White Russian?
Traditionally, a White Russian is a creamy cocktail consisting of coffee liqueur (such as Kahlúa), vodka and cream. When the cream is poured over the dark coffee liqueur mixture, it creates the well-known waves and swirls as it combines with the dark liquid. A show-stopper for sure!
Served “on the rocks”, this cocktail is perfect for sipping and enjoying. Almost like a dessert in a cup!
Pumpkin Spice Cream
In order to achieve the perfect pumpkin spice flavor for this cocktail, pumpkin butter is used! Pumpkin butter is the sibling to apple butter and is scrumptiously good. It consists of pumpkin pureé, spices and cider to create a delicious spread. I have a recipe for homemade Pumpkin Butter, or it can also be purchased at Williams Sonoma, Trader Joe’s or often at your local orchards/farms!
Swirling together the pumpkin butter with the heavy cream creates a wonderful concoction. The cream takes on the classic orange color of the pumpkin and the spices speckle through. It’s like liquid gold!
Let’s Make It
After you gather all your ingredients, it’s time to make a Caramel Pumpkin Spice White Russian! Trust me, all your friends will want to come over once you whip these bad boys out! Let’s make it together:
- Grab a glass – typically an old fashioned glass but I also love these.
- Add in the ice and pour in the Kahlúa and Caramel Vodka. Use a cocktail jigger to help you get the exact measurements needed.
- Whisk together the heavy cream and pumpkin butter and pour it over top – watch all the fun swirls and swoops! Gently stir together to combine.
- Top with freshly whipped cream, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and enjoy!
Get ready to raise your glass to this decadently delicious cocktail. It’s perfectly sip-able, loaded with Fall flavor and all sorts of luscious.
This pumpkin cocktail is perfect to enjoy on these Fall nights. A slight warmth from the spices and liqueur combined with the creaminess of the pumpkin cream makes this drink dangerously delicious.
