Happy Hour: Pumpkin Irish Coffee

Oct 9 2012 - 10:24am
Earlier this season, I was sent a curious-looking bottle of pumpkin pie cream liqueur from Fulton's Harvest [1], a label I'd never heard of. With a bottle of something so distinctive (and with the potential to taste either phenomenal or terrible), I was at a loss for what to do — so I took to the Twitterverse for some answers.

I soon found out more about Fulton's Harvest, including the fact that it's made by well-reputed Kentucky Bourbon maker Heaven Hill Distilleries and tastes delicious on the rocks or served chilled. But by that point, I'd gotten back so many enticing-sounding cooking and cocktail suggestions — everything from pumpkin whipped cream [2] to spiked pumpkin pie [3] — that I had to try one out.

Ultimately, it was @Tora_NYC's [4] Irish cream suggestion that left me with a brilliant Fall twist on a favorite, Irish coffee. As with any Irish coffee, don't let the whipped cream and coffee fool you — this cocktail packs a punch! I served it in a giant glass mug, topped with a very generous topping of whipped cream. For the recipe, keep reading.
