Shake It Up, Baby

Thanksgiving was the last time you mixed pumpkin pie and vodka. It was also the last time you pulled your skirt over your head while shouting at your sister, “At least I don’t have Mom’s thighs!”

There’s a safer way to blend your two favorites: the Pumpkin Shake. Follow this recipe for an ideal Halloween libation.

Pumpkin Shake

2 oz. Modern Spirits Pumpkin Pie vodka
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
½ oz. simple syrup
Splash of orange liqueur
3 large ice cubes

1. Combine in blender and pulse until smooth.

2. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg.

3. Drink until happy/full/sleepy.

Candy may be dandy, but liquor is always quicker.
