Pumpkin Spice White Russian

Pumpkin Spice White Russian recipe (YUM!)All you pumpkin spice haters better cover your eyes and leave the room because it's pumpkin spice time around here. Today we're making our own pumpkin spice syrup (double spice bc it's twice as nice), and then combining with vodka. Yep, vodka. Only the best for you, my lovely readers. ♥ 

This is my favorite autumn party drink (okay– it's a tie with this one).

2 ounces vodka 
1.5 ounces Bailey's (original flavor)
1 ounce half and half 
1 ounce pumpkin spice syrup*
honey or agave
cinnamon stick 

*To make the pumpkin spice syrup, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup water, and 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice in a small pan. Heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved completely. Let it cool, strain into a container, and keep it in a sealed container for up to two weeks in the fridge (use it for coffee, tea, or cocktails!). 

To make the drink, fill a glass with ice and combine vodka, Bailey's, half and half, and syrup. Stir and serve.
