Friday's Halloween Drink – Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Original_Andrea-Correale-Halloween-Cocktails-Bourbon-Pumpkin-Milkshake_v.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.1280.1707This recipe can be adapted to leave out the alcohol so you can share it with the kids! I don't know about you, but those sprinkles around the lip of the glass look tasty and you attach them with FROSTING!! Okay…admittedly, my teeth are starting to hurt! Don't forget to take pictures if you decide to do this drink. I think I'd like to try this one in a martini glass with the sprinkles around the edge.

As I said yesterday, these drinks are courtesy of the party animals over at the HGTV website!!
