What a really nice holiday drink! Next time I will add more pumpkin spice.

Fun novelty drink for the season. We made just as written and served in small clear juice glasses for a larger group. The vanilla wafer crumbs added to the whole presentation.

This is the best holiday drink! Because they are so addicting, I make some "calorie conscious" revisions: (1) I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk, (2) use Half & Half instead of heavy whipping cream, & (3) omit the graham cracker rim. The simple syrup is the key ingredient to this, it "holds" it all together & thickens the drink. This has been a huge hit every year at Thanksgiving!

Yummy! I omitted the simple syrup as the hazelnut liqueur is sweet enough to me, and I used more half & half/less milk as I like a creamy taste to a sweet drink like this. I have up until this recipe enjoyed a pumpkin martini using 2 oz vanilla vodka, 2 oz pumpkin spice liqueur (seasonal by HW) shaken well with ice, poured into a chilled martini glass, topped with a little half & half and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Omitting the vodka from that one makes it a little sweeter.

Wow, this is really good. I didn't do the cookie rim but I think that would just add to it. Smooth and creamy!

I made this last evening at my Uppercase Living Party, it was a hit! I premixed it (8 times the listed amounts, and it made a little over 2 quarts. Delicious,unique, and a keeper!
