Mighty Thirst Halloween: Bourbon Pumpkin Shake

I’m posting Halloween-themed cocktails this week. Boo!

This recipe is adapted from the genius Healthy Green Kitchen‘s Healthy Pumpkin Shake. I subtracted egg yolks, and added booze. If you make it without the booze, it’s super good for you, but not nearly so relaxing.

Bourbon Pumpkin Shake

Healthy Pumpkin Shake, minus the eggs: (1 cup canned pumpkin puree, 1 cup milk, a frozen banana, 1 Tsp. vanilla, 2 Tsp. maple syrup)
– 1.5 shots Amaretto
– 1.5 shots Bakers Bourbon
– 1 cup ice
– fresh rosemary to garnish

Put everything in a blender, give it a whirl. Add a sprig of rosemary to garnish.

Here’s to looking at clouds from above, homemade hot sauce in a travel-sized container, and fresh notepaper. What are you toasting?

1. Shots in ‘Cots
