Happy Thanksgiving Week Bon Bon Rose readers! It’s Jackie Fo here and I’ve got the perfect cocktail to add to your Thanksgiving feast. Whether used as a pre-dinner apertif or a post-dinner treat, this cocktail is creamy, smooth and tastes just like the holidays!
A White Russian is typically made with vodka and coffee liqueur and topped with milk or cream. I’ve substituted traditional coffee liqueur with Pumpkin liqueur and added a dash of cinnamon for this Pumpkin White Russian.

2.In a cocktail shaker, mix together the vodka, liqueur and milk.

I happen to love the taste of the pumpkin liqueur so I add equal parts milk and liqueur, but definitely play around with your version until you get the taste you love! This drink will undoubtedly make you the hostess with the mostess and rock your Thanksgiving Day! Cheers!
