As soon as Samhain hits we all start ordering pumpkin spice lattès on the way to work like that alone will keep our heart beating for the next 8 hours.
Well, for those of you who like something a little stronger in your coffee, Baileys have brought out Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice. It’s the second year they have participated in such seasonal madness. And while we aren’t sure if Baileys is even Irish anymore, we should all support Bailey’s autumnal/wintoral effort to get us to abuse our livers more.
Last year, Baileys jumped right into the pumpkin patch and created Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice, to profit off the lattè trend. It was only meant to be a seasonal limited-time indulgence that raised the Pumpkin Spice latte game up a notch. But we are all alcoholics at heart, and the boozy lattès turned into so much more. After selling out in just three short months, Baileys had to pump out more this year. So if you want to surprise your liver this autumn with an alternative to the ravaging effects of just plain old whiskey in your coffee, then go right ahead.
An additional benefit of drinking Pumpkin Spice Baileys is that your breath will smell like Christmas. The unapologetically indulgent liqueur blends the flavours of sweet cinnamon and baking spices, luscious maple, brown sugar, and baked pie crust with additional hints of vanilla and coffee. It’s like lying on a fruitcake.
For those confused about exactly how you can abuse your liver this winter, here are some instructions:
Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 oz Baileys Pumpkin Spice
1 1/2 oz Brewed Coffee
1 oz Milk
Fresh Grated Cinnamon
- Combine Baileys Pumpkin Spice with brewed coffee and milk. Stir well.
- Serve warm or over ice.
- Top with fresh grated cinnamon. Enjoy!
