Uhhh yes… why yes, I am posting a “recipe” for a milkshake.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes I howsweeteats.com

Feel free to kick me in the teeth.

It’s not that I think you’re too inept to know how to put ice cream scoops and milk in a blender and push “start”… it’s just that I’m not sure you know how to add a few hefty slugs of bourbon.

See? I knew we were in this relationship for a reason.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes I howsweeteats.com

Ooooh and I also really enjoyed this (some would say too much) and didn’t want you to go a day without it. That’s the real reason.

Okay… and the third (real) reason is that my last-minute planned cookies were a big fat fail on Tuesday and my teeth are sweet today. Sue me.

And I’ve already done all the other boring-yet-delicious, typical, !OMGit’spumpkinseason! recipes so what better way to ring in Fall with a refreshing beverage that tastes like pie with a side of liquor?

 

This is my kind of thing. I hope it’s yours too.

    I love the rimmed sprinkles and that you used real cream, vanilla, pumpkin, and graham crackers in it. Oh, and bourbon!! Pretty much I love this recipe!

    Hope you’re having fun on your trip! :)

    A MILKSHAKE IN A GLASS RIMMED WITH SPRINKLES. You’re a visionary! Also, I’m pretty sure that if I make my fiance a milkshake that combines pumpkin (he is a total OMG its pumpkin season! guy) and bourbon (and, um, a Jim Beam guy) he will ask me to marry him all over again. Thank you!

    Minus the bourbon, since I’m technically a ‘kiddo’, ohmygosh this looks so delicious. I love anything pumpkin, and an excuse to have a pumpkin milkshake? Perfect. What a great idea with the graham cracker crumbs, and thank goodness for the cream and milk combination, sounds creamy!

    Those sprinkles are adorable — and I love that this is an actual milkshake — not pumpkin + banana + ice and if you close your eyes real tight and pretend, then you’ll have a pumpkin milkshake.

If you’re looking to add even more pumpkin to your life, I posted some Pumpkin Hummus yesterday (http://wp.me/pSUCS-2BK) .. I might just have to eat it by the spoonful and wash it down with these milkshakes!

    Unless you drank too much bourbon before getting as far as making the milkshakes ….

    However do you manage to pour bourbon into a blender and take a picture without spilling it? If I did that, it would be ALL over the place and not in the blender!

    This is not a recipe I should have looked at BEFORE work… I guess bourbon for breakfast isn’t kosher? This is the perfect recipe for “fall” in places where its still over 90 degrees every day! I was wondering how you got those sprinkles to stick so well… frosting is a miracle worker.

    Everything…and I mean EVERYTHING tastes that much better with sprinkles. I so cannot wait to try these! I’m wondering if perhaps some whipped cream and a caramel drizzle would put my teeth in the painfully sweet category as well or if I should just suck it up and deal with it….boy, I have issues.
