This bourbon pumpkin pie shake is an adult way to enjoy a beverage that is still somewhat child-like. Created by Jess at the blog How Sweet It Is, the milkshake recipe combines a well-loved fall flavor with a diner-inspired treat plus alcohol. The cozy cocktail is the ideal transitional drink as we move into autumn. The milkshake will keep you cool in places where you are lucky enough to still be enjoying warm weather, but it still has that seasonal taste if you are eager to be a bit more festive.

If you want to enjoy the pumpkin pie shake at home, you will need ingredients including vanilla ice cream, milk, cream (or half and half), vanilla extract, pureed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, graham cracker crumbs, bourbon, frosting and sprinkles.
