If I had to describe these Pumpkin Bourbon Milkshakes, I’d say they taste like boozy pumpkin pie. And that’s meant in the best possible way.

I lifted the recipe from one of our favorite food bloggers, Tracy Benjamin of Shutterbean. And then a few tweaks were made. (Spoiler alert: I doubled the bourbon)

(Before we get started, let’s take a moment to appreciate the heroes of this recipe)

Ok, now we can move on. Begin by gathering your fixin’s. Because when bourbon is featured so prominently, you’re allowed to get a little Southern.

Here’s what you’ll need:

28oz vanilla ice cream

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, for a little extra vanilla flavor)

1/2 cup bourbon

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

extra cinnamon for sprinkling

sweetened whipped cream (optional)

 

It might look something like this.

Then dump it all in a blender. At which point, it will look something like this.

Next, blend your little heart out until it’s the picture of pumpkin-y smoothness.

When you’re satisfied with your blending, promptly pour into 2-4 glasses(top with whipped cream, if you’re into that sort of thing), add a few dashes of cinnamon on top and share (if you’re feeling exceptionally generous). Just a warning, these dreamy little shakes were downed in record time by the test subjects. Another round quickly followed. Then, a nap…but that’s totally optional.

 

What do you think? Would you rather drink something dreamily boozy and reminiscent of pie or just dive headfirst into a pie pan for the real thing?
