Everyone loves a classic rum and cola, but do you know what spices things up a little?
Kahlúa and Cola.
And do you want to know what spices things up a little further?
Pumpkin Spice Kahlúa and Cola.
I know. It just keeps getting better and better and better. This cocktail is a little sweet and a little spicy, the perfect drink to mix up when you want to curl up by the fire with your family or friends. But it’s also a little bit of a novelty, the kind of drink that’s a little bit exciting.
When you’re entertaining for the holidays, it’s always extra fun to add a seasonal twist to the food and drinks you’re serving. I’m a sucker for recipes that include peppermint, gingerbread and pumpkin at this time of the year, and any time you can update a classic to make it a little bit seasonal, it’s extra special. There are so many options for delicious seasonal drinks in the fall: try mulled cider with a splash of Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice, or hot chocolate with a little bit of Kahlúa Peppermint Mocha for a deliciously indulgent treat.
And this recipe? It takes a classic and makes it even better, a little richer and spicier and more fun. I named it the Pumpkin Parachute to capture some of that seasonal and exciting spirit, and I can’t wait for you to give it a try!
And when you’re decorating for the holidays, don’t stop at just the typical pumpkin-on-the-doorstep! Incorporate festive gourds and mini-pumpkins into your table décor, and use holiday ornaments to create festive place settings!
Finally, I love to stock up on mini poppers for special holiday dinners: they’re a great conversation starter at the beginning of the meal! Serve your favorite seasonal cocktail, a few small finger foods, and your guests will be in the holiday spirit in no time.
