In this after-dinner drink, the old duo Kahlua and cream get a fall update with pumpkin butter. The wild card ingredient here is Ramazzotti, an amaro with strong notes of orange and cinnamon—it goes fantastically well with pumpkin.

Note: I followed this recipe for pumpkin butter, but you could also use something store-bought and adjust for sweetness as needed.
