Okay, real talk time! I've never been into pumpkin flavored anything. Truth be told, the thought of eating pumpkin and pumpkin flavored stuff sort of grosses me out. I don't get hyped up about September 1st, and the only PSL I ever buy is for Mike... but I made a pumpkin spice hot toddy for the Autumn season and maybe, just maybe, I can understand why people get so worked up about it.
Don't get me wrong... I probably won't be chowing down on pumpkin pie anytime soon, and I won't be ordering a PSL for myself (Sorry, Caramel Apple Spice has my Autumn-loving heart!), but I can certainly get down with some pumpkin spice syrup and some whiskey! If that sounds like your jam, you'll be into this drink, I promise!
I created this drink for LuLu*s (remember my Hot Summer cocktails for them a few months ago?) and just like the last time, there's an alcohol version and a mocktail version. That way everyone gets to join in on the splendor that is a warm, creamy Hot Toddy!
Pop on over to the LuLu*s blog to get the full recipe run down! Let me know if you think you'll be trying it soon! It makes me want to host an Autumn get-together for sure. Not to mention create more season-appropriate cocktails! It's kind of fun when that's part of your "job," ya know? Happy Friday!
