Pumpkin Hot Toddy

Pumpkin Hot Toddy
My husband has always liked hot toddies. I thought there was a specific recipe for the name hot toddy, but it turns out A hot toddy is a mixed drink, usually including alcohol, that is served hot. Hot toddies are traditionally drunk before going to bed, or in wet or cold weather. Since it is an extremely rare occasion that we ever have cold wet weather. I am going for the "serve before bed" theory.

This is really easy to make if you have the pumpkin spice concentrate made up and ready. I just whipped this puppy together in no time at all.
Here is what you need:

2 TBSP pumpkin spice concentrate
2 oz Captain Morgan (you can double if you like a stiff drink)
3/4 cup hot milk.(I used flax milk to add a little nutrition but any milk is fine)
Whipped Cream (homemade recipe below)

Whipped Cream recipe:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
Add all together and whisk until thick (usually about 3 minutes full speed on the kitchenaid)

Gather ingredients
Put 2 TBSP pumpkin spice puree into coffee cup

Add 3/4 cup hot milk and a shot of Captain morgan. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
I added these really really good gluten free biscotti by ENERG. I picked Cranberry biscotti because the flavor combination reminds me of Thanksgiving.
