This creamy Pumpkin Spice Liqueur is a delicious delicate homemade liqueur. The combination of Pumpkin, Spices, Cream, Whiskey and a hint of coffee give this tasty drink a comfy taste of Fall.
A few days ago, I heard a few friends of mine asking each other if anyone had tasted the new Pumpkin Spiced Cream Liqueur that was on the market during this time of the year. No one had, so I knew I would have to be the one to introduce it!
- Cream – whole/heavy or whipping cream, with at least 30% fat
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Whiskey – Irish/Scottish Whiskey or Royal Crown Canadian Rye Whiskey
- Pumpkin Puree – not pie filling just pureed pumpkin, Homemade or Store bought
- Coffee – strong
- Pumpkin pie spice – you can make your own homemade Pumpkin Spice
Sugar for the Rim
- Maple syrup
- Brown sugar – I used light brown
After 5 attempts at making this I finally came up with a winner, well thanks to the Italian and a few friends who didn’t hesitate to give me their 2 cents.
How to make it
In a blender add all the above ingredients, blend for approximately 30 seconds or until well combined. Refrigerate for approximately 3-5 hours or even over night. Shake or stir before serving. Serve over ice or straight up. Best if served in Maple Syrup/Brown Sugar Rimmed glasses.
Sugar Rimmed Glass
Take 2 plates, in one plate pour a little maple syrup in the other plate sprinkle some brown sugar, dip the rip of the glass first in the maple syrup then dip into the brown sugar, add some Homemade Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur and enjoy.
What is the best liquor for this Cream Liqueur?
My first couple of experiments I made it with an Irish Whiskey (although Scotch Whiskey would work well too).
But my husband and his friend asked me to try making it with Canadian Rye Whiskey, Royal Crown and so naturally I thought why not? They are still licking their lips so you decide!
I wanted something smooth and creamy, I didn’t want any one ingredient taking over the other, including the liquor. I decided that every time you took a taste you had to taste something else. And I think I succeeded.
How to store it
Because it contains dairy it will definitely need to be stored in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 3-4 weeks in the fridge if stored properly. If it curdles or smells off, then discard.
Can I make it without liquor?
Yes you can although it will only keep for up to a week in the fridge. The alcohol is what gives it the longer storage time.
How to serve Pumpkin Liqueur?
I like to serve it very cold straight up or even over ice. You could even serve it over ice cream or in your coffee.

You are going to need a Blender, I just bought a new one and I don’t know how I did without. Without Whiskey you can’t make this creamy Pumpkin Liqueur! And some really cute Liqueur Glasses make it special!
Well my friends I really do think I came up with something. The addition of the maple syrup and brown sugar rimmed glass was the icing on the cake!
This Homemade Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur is the perfect way to put up your feet, sit back, have a sip and welcome in one of the best if not “The Best Season” of them all. Happy almost Fall my friends. Enjoy!

So yummy and easy to make. Was hoping to make some and add some small bottles into family festive gift baskets. Can you confirm how long this will keep before spoiling?
Hi Leah, thanks so much, if it is unopened and kept in the fridge it should last for up to 2 months. Merry Christmas.
This sounds so good!
Thanks Christina we did enjoy it!

You are so creative…pumpkin rules!
Thanks so much Kay. Yes Pumpkin does rule!
I so want to try this! What a great idea and so perfect for fall!
Hi Michelle, thanks let me know what you think.
Can I substitute Vodka for the whiskey ?
Hi Deborah, I have only made it with whiskey, but I think you should be able to, it may give it a different milder taste. Let me know how it turns out. 🙂

Now that’s a drink to toast in the cooler weather. I love Bailey’s Irish Cream and I also love pumpkin. What a marriage! I’m pinning to make when we get home. Great recipe!! Oh! By the way, I’ve never known Italians to be shy about giving their opinions 🙂
Hi Marisa, thanks so much and let me know what you think. Haha I know Italians can never not say what’s on their mind. 🙂
