This Boozy Pumpkin Spice Latte is Far from Basic
October 26, 2016
Pumpkin Spiked Latte anyone? This is not your run of the mill Starbucks version. Because last time I checked, that traditional PSL doesn't have a lick of bourbon. And what fun is that? Take your favorite Fall drink to delicious sipping status with this homemade and booze infused version from The Whisking Kitchen. Psst... find more perfect for Fall cocktails this way.
While I still love a pumpkin spice latte and all the memories associated with them, I thought for the blog I would need something a bit more sophisticated. After all this is The Whisking Kitchen and around here we love bringing our A game to the party. Don't get me wrong I love the standard pumpkin spice drink (with soymilk!) and I have probably ordered two in the last week buuuuut this particulary recipe steps up the flavor game just a tad.
In my opinion everything made at home is usually waaaaay better than in a retail store. And while I can order an extra shot of espresso at Starbucks, I don't think they will ever let me add an extra shot of bourbon. That will be the day won't it ?!
