So, just plan to get a bunch of Bailey's when you're out next, because this drink is so addictive, you'll want to make sure you have plenty on hand! There's some good pumpkin flavor in here without being over-powering, just enough kick from the Bailey's without tasting boozy. It's creamy and spicy - everything a fall drink should be! Feel free to experiment with your liquor of choice - Kahlua, bourbon or vanilla vodka would all be great choices!
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yummm! All the flavors are portioned just right, making this the perfect warm drink for a chilly autumn evening. This is perfect creamy, smooth and a delicious evening treat!
Heat milk in a small saucepan until very warm. Add chocolate chips and whisk to melt. When melted, add pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, whisking to incorporate. Heat another minute or so, stirring, being careful not to bring to a boil.
Pour 2 oz Bailey's into each mug. Pour in heated milk mixture, splitting between the mugs. Top with whipped cream if desired.
