Today isn’t just about cocktails. It’s also about the totally fabulous Joanne of Joanne Eats Well with Others. She is getting married in a few weeks and myself and a few other bloggers have gotten together and thrown her a little virtual wedding shower.

So in true Nutmeg Nanny fashion I brought a cocktail. Who doesn’t love a good cocktail?

This pumpkin spice white Russian is full of kahlua, cream, pumpkin pie spice and just a drizzle of chocolate syrup. This is the perfect fall cocktail!

I have always loved white Russians because it reminds me of my mom. She is not a huge drinker but will almost never turn down one of these tasty libations. I remember as a kid watching her sit with her cocktail and sip away. Of course because I was a horrible child I would sneak sips when she wasn’t looking. Dude, this stuff is delicious. How could I not sneak a few sips? Plus I’m a huge fan of The Big Lebowski so you can’t not love white Russians after watching that movie.

You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

Although I’m guessing The Dude would not be a big fan of the addition of the pumpkin pie spice. Oh well, his loss. It takes this simple drink to a whole new fall flavor level. A level that you need to reach. Trust me.

This pumpkin spice white Russian is full of kahlua, cream, pumpkin pie spice and just a drizzle of chocolate syrup. This is the perfect fall cocktail!

If you’re not a fan of vodka you can simply leave it out for a less potent (but equally delicious) cocktail.

    You know, I wasn’t going to have a signature cocktail at the wedding, but I think I need to rethink that and put this on the menu!! If I called it The Nutmeg Nanny instead, would that be awkward? Thanks so much love!!! Also, is it 5pm yet?!

    Meg @ The Housewife in Training Files — November 10, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    White Russians are my hubbies and I drink of choice during the winter! Although I could drink them year around…grown up chocolate milk more like it. Congrats to Joanne!

    Bea — November 10, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    Sandy — October 22, 2015 at 9:36 am

    I made this last night with whipped cream vodka (as I only have flavoured vodkas in the house) and Godiva chocolate liqueur (as I don’t have coffee liqueur). Everything else was the same and it was DELICIOUS. Such a fitting drink for the season, thank-you for the recipe :).

    Brittany | Balanced Frugality — November 15, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    These are my fiance’s and my favorite fall cocktail. Thanks to your recipe, my memory of last Thanksgiving is a little . . . fuzzy. They are REALLY good.
