Grown Up Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes.
Uhhh yes… why yes, I am posting a “recipe” for a milkshake.
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.
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.

Did you make this recipe?
I appreciate you so much!
Oh and these fun autumn sprinkles? They came from Janetha. Man I love that girl.
