Pumpkin Spice White Russian Cocktail

What does fall mean to you? Is it pumpkin patches, raking leaves, or trick or treating? Do you look forward to the cooler weather, celebrating holidays with family, or fall festivals at school?


All of those are dandy, but it probably won’t surprise you to know that what I look most forward to about fall is the FOOD. I wholeheartedly embrace pumpkin and gingerbread flavor everywhere, which peaks on the greatest culinary day of the year: Thanksgiving! Then, we’re ready to switch to eggnog and peppermint flavors to get in the winter holiday spirit. You know who is great at celebrating seasonal flavors? Coffee-Mate! I don’t know about you, but I stalk the dairy section of the grocery store this time of year in anticipation of Pumpkin Spice and Eggnog Latte Coffee-Mate flavors. I’m usually a daily hazelnut kind of girl, occasionally switching it up with irish cream for some variety, but come September I stock up on the seasonal flavors while I can!

Enjoying morning coffee at Weary Chef HQ.

I don’t need to tell you that Coffee-Mate tastes great in coffee, so today I’m bringing you a new way to enjoy your favorite coffee creamer. You are going to love this Pumpkin Spice White Russian! You could also use a different flavor to make it your dream cocktail. I love the pumpkin flavor in this version, but I’ll be sure trying it out with the Eggnog Latte and Dark Chocolate Fudge Coffee-Mate too. There are so many good options! Enjoy yourself trying them all :)

You will love the pumpkin addition to this old favorite!

  • Total Time: 2 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x




  1. Fill a small rocks glass with ice. Pour coffee liqueur and vodka over ice.
  2. Slowly pour creamer over vodka mixture to float it on top. (This makes for a nice presentation, but stir before enjoying.)


This cocktail is quite sweet. You can add 1/2 oz. milk or half and half to cut down on the sweetness a bit if you like.

I made something similar. They also have pumpkin spice flavored kahula, and I used whipped cream flavored vodka. So yummy!

I need to try that Kahlua! I haven’t seen it yet this year, but maybe I haven’t looked hard enough :)
