Pumpkin Café au Lait

by Dinah Wulf

Halloween is just around the corner. When I was a kid one of my favorite desserts was roasted pumpkin with cream. In fact, I loved it so much and looked forward to it all year. It was upsetting to me when I found out that you could not eat jack-o’ lanterns!!! What a waste :(

“You didn’t tell me you were gonna kill it.”-Linus to Lucy as she takes the seeds out of the pumpkin before they carve it. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’

And if you’re looking for an alcohol free drink then skip the booze. It’s delicious as just a coffee drink.


Spiced Pumpkin Bourbon Café Au Lait:


  • 1 oz. Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey
  • ½ oz. Grand Marnier liqueur
  • ½ oz. Godiva Caramel liqueur
  • 5-6 oz. Pumpkin Au Lait (recipe below)

Pour the whiskey and liqueur into a footed mug. Add the Pumpkin Café au Lait mix to the mug. Finish with whipped cream and sprinkle graham cracker mix on top.
