Thirsty Thursday - Pumpkin Pie Whiskey Milkshake

Hi guys! Megan here! Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! Fall is almost here. September 22nd! But, if I'm really honest with myself, fall starts Sept 1st. At least to me. I'm just too excited about fall and I think I'm kinda bias. My birthday is in the fall and Halloween, which is my favorite holiday EVER. Pumpkin carving is in the fall. And let's not forget Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte. (Which I personally think they should serve all year, DARN IT!) September 1st is when all my fall stuff comes out, October 1st is Halloween (which lasts all month for me), and after Halloween all the fall stuff comes back out. My fall doesn't end until the end of the first week of December. I seriously think I suffer from separation anxiety when fall is away. So, now you know my love for fall so I'm gonna share with you a Pumpkin Pie Whiskey Milkshake. The best part of this drink is that you can make it year round. It's perfect for someone like me that misses fall come March when Starbucks stops serving the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yes, you can still order a Pumpkin Spice Latte in March. Ask me how I know. And don't judge me.

Oh, yeah! Yummy, yummy, yummy. And Alex even likes these things, which is saying a lot. He doesn't like sweets because he's a weirdo. So, wanna know how to make these little beauties?

Pumpkin Pie Whiskey Milkshake - recipe adapted from How Sweet It Is


2 cups pumpkin spice ice cream or vanilla ice cream.
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 can pureed pumpkin
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
2-3 oz of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Whiskey (Careful now, this stuff is STRONG. If you are a lightweight like me. Use two ounces.) 
honey and cinnamon sugar for glasses


1. Place your cinnamon sugar and honey in two separate bowls. 

2. Rim your glass with honey.

3. Then, place your glass into the cinnamon sugar.

Oh yeah! Now for the fun part.

4. EWWWW!!! Place all of your ingredients into your blender and blend until completely combined. Pour into your prepared glasses.

Top with some cinnamon or whipped cream. Delish! You can also make this non-alcoholic and child friendly by skipping on the whiskey. It tastes just as yummy! Thanks for joining us this week for Thirsty Thursday. See you tomorrow for Favorite Finds Friday.


  1. THIS SOUNDS AWESOME! My hubby likes to use Tennessee honey whiskey when he makes bbq sauce so I know we have some on hand :)


Happy Crafting!
