Spiked Coffee with Pumpkin Spice Recipe

Spiked Coffee with Pumpkin Spice
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: 4 drinks

This make-at-home version of a coffee-shop pumpkin spice latte gets bonus points for using actual pumpkin, plus it’s spiked with rum. Plan ahead and make a batch of Homemade Pumpkin Spice Liqueur. When it’s ready, brew some coffee, add the liqueur, and top with a dollop of brown-sugar whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg. Serve steaming in mugs with Spiced Pumpkin-Pecan Pancakes to reach pumpkin brunch critical mass.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 20 ounces hot brewed coffee (2 1/2 cups)
  • 8 ounces Homemade Pumpkin Spice Liqueur
  • Whole nutmeg, for grating
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Chill a medium bowl and a hand whisk in the freezer for 10 minutes. Add the cream and sugar to the bowl and whisk until medium peaks form, about 2 minutes.
  2. Place 5 ounces of the coffee and 2 ounces of the liqueur in each of 4 (8-ounce) heatproof glasses or mugs and stir to combine. Divide the whipped cream among the drinks and grate nutmeg over the cream.
