Baileys Pumpkin Spice Liqueur Dessert Coffee

Baileys Pumpkin Spice Liqueur Dessert Coffee is a special treat that is sure to warm you to your toes with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and more!

Baileys Pumpkin Spice Dessert Coffee

I agreed to sample a bottle of Baileys seasonal Irish Cream Liqueur and have to admit we loved this Baileys Pumpkin Spice Liqueur Dessert Coffee although I went into it with a bit of trepidation.

Not only did I wonder what it would taste like but also because I’m not much for jumping on a bandwagon and I want to be careful about the products and brands I promote that are taking advantage of a trend. I’m a bit stubborn that way; sort of anti-trend I guess.

I honestly wish we could move beyond this whole ‘Pumpkin Spice’ thing that I’m blaming Starbucks for. I have several fall type recipes that use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves but those four together do not compose ‘pumpkin spice’ and I don’t just associate them with pumpkin.

The popularity of their Pumpkin Spice Latte has seen a proliferation of grocery items carrying the ‘Pumpkin Spice’ label and this year it seems to have gone over the top. A friend saw Pumpkin Spice Gouda Cheese at her grocery store. Yes…I think that fits ‘over the top’ pretty perfectly…don’t you?

So the first thing I did was to check ingredients of the Baileys Pumpkin Spice Liqueur, even before I tasted the contents of the bottle. And guess what…as I guessed, not a drop of pumpkin!

This rich liqueur does blend the flavors of sweet cinnamon and baking spices with maple, brown sugar, vanilla and coffee; all delicious in their own right.

Although I wanted to make a coffee based cocktail; when I tried it straight, I loved those warm spices with the sweet notes and could easily imagine this as a nightcap all by itself, either straight up or my preference, on the rocks.

But the fact is that I wanted to make an indulgent after dinner dessert coffee and this fit the bill. Shh…don’t tell but I might have had an after breakfast dessert coffee this morning…you know, all for the sake of science and making sure it turned out as good as I thought it had the night before…at least that’s my excuse.

I did this all for  you. 🙂

Dessert Coffee with Bailey's Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

I had just enough whipping cream in the fridge to top a couple of cocktails so I whipped it up with a bit of the Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice Irish Cream Liqueur to flavor it and added a dollop to the top of each coffee. Some warm caramel sauce, a cinnamon stick and some fresh grated cinnamon were the perfect final touch.

I made two cocktails. It was all I could do to just drink one. Normally my lucky neighbors get a quick text and someone shows up at the door for leftovers; nope, not this time. I’m occasionally selfish when something seriously tickles my fancy and admittedly a sweet dessert coffee can be very ticklish! 🙂

This is one specialty liqueur I really do recommend…there’s nothing pumpkin about it; it’s all warm and spicy!

  1. Good garnish! I do like pumpkin spice, but I like pumpkin pie a lot. Don’t think I’ve ever had it in any sort of beverage, though (I don’t get out much — had no idea Starbuck’s originated the trend!). Anyway, it sure looks like it works in this drink. Very seasonal. 🙂 Thanks!
