Pumpkin Brandy Alexander Cocktails

Fall is in full swing and that means it is pumpkin spice time. While I love incorporating pumpkin into my baking at this time of year, I also have fun adding it to my cocktails. These pumpkin bandy alexander cocktails are an elegant way to celebrate everything that the season has to offer!


  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 oz brandy
  • 1/2 oz creme de cacao
  • 1 + 1/2 oz brewed espresso or coffee
  • 1 oz pumpkin puree
  • 1 oz half and half or heavy cream
  • 1/2 oz pure maple syrup


  1. Mix the sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a shallow dish until well combined. Wet the rim of your glass and coat the rim with the sugar and pumpkin pie spice mixture.
  2. Add ice to a cocktail shaker and add all of the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously until the cocktail is chilled and well combined. Pour over a strainer into cocktail glasses and top with cocoa powder, shaved chocolate or shaved nutmeg. Enjoy immediately.
