Pumpkin Spice Irish Coffee

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required as well as understand the steps and timings involved.

It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season, but as much as this beverage is beloved by so many, it is really quite basic isn’t it!

However, spike it with booze and crank it up to 11 with this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Irish Coffee!

Pumpkin pie spice is one of the quintessential flavors of fall. Although you can buy containers of this popular spice, it only takes a couple minutes to mix up your own using ingredients you probably already have on hand. Use what you need and store the rest in an airtight container for several weeks – if it lasts that long! See below for a quick recipe.

If you can’t get enough of this classic flavor, this beverage combines it with hot coffee, Baileys Irish Cream, and delicious maple whipped cream for a cozy and satisfying adults-only treat. Enjoy!

Traditional Irish coffees are made with whiskey with cream floated on the top. In my years as a barmaid in my dad’s pub I must have made hundreds of these hot beverages!

You could float the cream with or without sugar (tricker without) using a spoon against the edge of the glass.

There isn’t any sugar in this recipe, but if you want to add extra sweetness to your coffee, then please do.

You don’t have to worry about floating the cream if you don’t want to – just dollop some on top and drink up!

Oh, and if you can get Pumpkin Spice Baileys (seasonal) you could use that instead of regular Baileys (just leave out the pumpkin spice in the recipe).

Or you could also try Mozart Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Cream Liqueur which I think would taste a-maz-ing!
