Drink of the Week: Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte Shot

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

In order to celebrate the changing of the leaves, I’ve invented an easy shot that will knock your shorts off and replace them with yoga pants: The Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte Shot.

Primary alcohol: Spiced Rum

How to make it: Brew a very small amount of coffee and mix it in a glass with the sugar and a healthy dash of the pumpkin spice. Add the milk and rum. Stir the hell out of it and pour into a white Dixie cup, or a leftover espresso shot glass from a certain famous coffee chain; to mimic the full experience, spell your name wrong on the side of the cup with a Sharpie. Top with more pumpkin pie spice, shoot it warm, and go tell your boyfriend or sisters all the things you love about fall. 

The experience: In this specific, scientifically deduced mixture, the shot tastes exactly like a warm pumpkin spice latte. It’ll make you want to play in the leaves and cuddle up under a blanket. It’s a little light, but if you’re 5-2 and weigh 98 pounds in your Uggs, it’ll do the trick. 

Advice: This is obviously a very large shot, so a Dixie cup (or something larger) is required for the full experience. Splitting it up into normal shot glasses and sharing with your friends will still result in a taste that’s just as sweater-weather approved.
