This pumpkin pie cocktail is perfect for after dinner and features coffee, Kahlua, and vodka! Don’t forget to add the whipped cream.
Do you love drinks with Kahlua? This coffee flavored liqueur is delicious, and it’s perfect for making dessert cocktails.
And speaking of dessert beverages . . . you’re going to love this recipe for our signature pumpkin pie cocktail!
I’ll be honest, Kahlua is one of my favorites in mixed drinks. If you’ve never had it (is that possible?), it’s slightly sweet with a coffee flavor and a hint of vanilla. Making it taste really good with pumpkin.
It’s mostly made of coffee and rum. For the record, it’s similar to Bailey’s, but stronger.
One thing I love about Kahlua drinks is that they taste good when they’re warm – at least for the most part. I’ll always prefer my White Russians on the rocks.
But generally speaking, I can do Kahlua cocktails warm. This pumpkin cocktail is delicious either warm or cold.
Also to note: this drink will carry you from fall into the new year; but of course I’m not going to judge you if you want to make it any time. It’s that delicious.
The coffee flavors of the Kahlua meld so well with the vodka and the pumpkin – then you add the whipped cream, and BOOM. Life changing.
Did I mention it takes just a few minutes to make? Learn how to make it below.
Ingredients (serves 1)
- 6 ounces of strongly brewed coffee, chilled

To Make Whipped Cream

If you’re going to make the whipped cream:
Place the mixer bowl in the freezer for 20 minutes to chill. Pour the heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla into the cold bowl. Whisk on high speed until medium to stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. As soon as the peaks form, stop.
