Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

So, I made this bourbon pumpkin pie to be the grand finale of our first annual “Neighborsgiving” last week. But like just about everything else that night, it didn’t quite go according to plan.

As many of you may know, my neighbors in downtown Kansas City have been meeting together for our Neighbor Nights for a little over two years now. But being the wonderfully disorganized crew that we are, we have never quite gotten our act together to plan something together for Thanksgiving…until this year. We all love Thanksgiving, and love our neighbors, and we definitely love to eat together. So it seemed only natural that we get this Neighborsgiving started! I volunteered to cook a big turkey, and everyone rsvp-ed with an impressive array of classic Thanksgiving recipes that they planned to bring.

Well, to make a long story short, the turkey did not happen (I went out to buy it the night before, conveniently forgetting about — you know — that small fact that frozen turkeys take days to thaw). But my neighbor, John, volunteered to instead make a few beer can chickens, but those also did not happen (due to an exploding empty Pyrex dish that he set in the oven to catch the juices — oops!). Then he went to Costco to pick up a bunch of rotisserie chickens to feed 40+ people, but only two of those happened (because guess what night Costco conveniently ran out of chicken?!). Add to that about 5 other dishes people planned to make which did not happen (long work hours and botched recipes), some cute Pinterest-y table decor that didn’t happen (a neighbor ran out of time), and this amazing bourbon pumpkin pie that didn’t happen (because guess who completely forgot about it in the fridge), and well, you get the idea. Nothing quite went according to plan.

But you know what did happen.

Pumpkin Pie Ingredients

  • pie crust: use your favorite pie crust recipe, or use my foolproof all butter pie crust which, in my biased opinion, is the best and easiest pie dough ever!
  • pumpkin puree: not pumpkin pie filling! I love using organic pumpkin puree, but use whatever brand you know and love!
  • granulated sugar: for sweetness!
  • light brown sugar: our second sweetener! Be sure to pack your brown sugar in the measuring cup.
  • bourbon: 3 tablespoons! This amount adds just the right amount of bourbon flavor. We use Bulleit bourbon, but use whatever you have on hand.
  • eggs: bring your eggs to room temperature before using them! You’ll use 2 whole eggs and then 1 egg yolk. Either discard the egg white or store it for a later use!
  • evaporated milk: not to be substituted with regular milk, heavy cream, sour cream, etc.
  • pumpkin spice, cinnamon, ginger, and ground cardamom: our spices! This combination adds the perfect punch of warm and cozy spice to the pie.
  • all-purpose flour: just a teaspoon thickens the filling up.
  • vanilla extract: a dash enhances all of the other flavors in this pie!
  • salt: balances the flavors.


    1. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin into a 12-inch round and fit into pie plate. Trim edge, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Fold overhang under and lightly press against rim of pie plate, then crimp decoratively. Lightly prick bottom all over with a fork. Chill until firm, at least 30 minutes (or freeze 10 minutes).
    2. Preheat oven to 375°F with rack in middle.
    3. Line shell with foil and fill with pie weights. Bake until side is set and edge is golden, about 20 minutes. Carefully remove weights and foil and bake shell until golden all over, 10 to 15 minutes more. Cool completely.
    4. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour into cooled shell.
    5. Bake until edge of filling is set but center trembles slightly, about 45 minutes (filling will continue to set as it cools). Cool completely.

    Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

    The recipe is simple and when I mean we are using leftover pie, I mean it. We are just dumping pie in the blender. Into a blender add in two small to medium pieces of pie and 3 ounces of bourbon. I use a Ninja Foodi Blender, I was gifted it back in June from the company and since it’s replaced my older Ninja blender I had. I highly recommend it if you like making soups or your own mixers for cocktails because of the heating element.

    If you already have one you’ll want to use the EXTRACT button here. Let it run its cycle. If you have a different brand of a blender, use your highest function. You really want to blend down the pie crust (and if you’re doing pecan pie, the pecans).

    From there add in 1 pint of vanilla ice cream & 1/2 cup of milk. If you think a thin milkshake use up to 3/4 cup of milk. If using the SMOOTHIE feature of your blender or on a medium setting. Blend until well combined about one minute.

    Pour milkshakes into two glasses. Serve with whip cream & ground cinnamon on top!

    If you’d like to substitute bourbon for a vanilla vodka or pumpkin pie vodka, you absolutely could in this recipe!

    • For the Cider Reduction:
    • 2 1/2 cups unfiltered apple cider
    • For Maple Whipped Cream:
    • 1 cup cold heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
    • For Milkshakes:
    • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cider reduction
    • 1/4 cup bourbon
    • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
    • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
    • 3 cups vanilla ice cream (about 6 medium scoops)
    • Garnish: maple whipped cream

    For the cider reduction: bring cider to a boil in a small saucepan. Let simmer until reduced by half. Let cool and refrigerate 1 hour or up to 1 week. Recipe will make enough for 2 batches of milkshakes.

    For the maple whipped cream: For best results, chill beater and bowl before whipping cream. Add cream to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or use a hand-held electric mixer. Whip on medium speed until soft peaks just begin to form. With machine running, gradually add maple syrup. Reduce speed to medium low and continue whipping until soft peaks form. Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

    For the milkshakes: add cider reduction, bourbon, cinnamon, ginger, maple syrup, and pumpkin puree to the jar of a blender. Add ice cream and pulse until smooth. Divide among serving glasses, top each glass with maple whipped cream and serve immediately.

    Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes

    • These pumpkin milkshakes are a great sip of fall.

    I always find myself overbuying canned pumpkin this time of year. When I see the walls of it at the store, I can’t help but grab a few cans even if I already have a few at home.

    The problem is I can mentally see all the delicious things I want to make with the stuff, like this Pumpkin Pie Milkshake, and I would hate to not have it when the cravings hit!

    As you might imagine, this isn’t necessarily a hard recipe to make, so it’s nice to kick it up a notch by making some homemade whipped cream for the milkshakes. I add a little splash of bourbon in mine for an extra kick (or leave it out for kiddos).

    For the whipped cream, basically you just whisk everything together until it forms stiff peaks and then store it in the fridge until your milkshake is ready.

    Now for the shake! Again, I added a splash of bourbon to my milkshake. Not enough to get ya drunk or anything – it just helps give the shake some deep, interesting flavors. And, yes, you can leave it out for abstaining friends or kids.

    To make the shakes, just combine everything in a blender! Add the ice cream and pumpkin first and then pour in everything else.

    Pulse this in your blender until it’s nice and smooth. The pumpkin puree will actually help it blend and make it really easy.

    This was my finished milkshake mixture.

    I like this recipe as is, but feel free to taste it at this point and adjust to your liking. You could add an extra dash of vanilla, for instance, or up any of the spices if you want it more flavorful.

    Simply pour it in a glass, top it with a lot of bourbon whipped cream, and garnish it with some ground cinnamon.

    This is the perfect time of year for this milkshake – so don’t miss your chance to make it!

    Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

    You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream — but a liberal shot of bourbon ensures this fall-flavored milkshake is an adults-only treat. Or, skip the booze and blend up a batch of non-alcoholic shakes for your favorite trick-or-treaters.

    Bourbon Pumpkin Milkshake

    Enjoy the best that Fall has to offer with this Bourbon Pumpkin Milkshake, a delicious adult-only creamy dessert cocktail!

    Fall is my favorite season! That statement with a grain of salt because I make such claims for each season about once per quarter. But, given that I love to cook and eat, Fall really is one of my most favorite times of the year. One of the main reasons? Pumpkin. I love walking through the store and seeing pumpkin-flavored everything! Is it that good because we only get to enjoy it this time of year?

    My husband is a lover of bourbon. He’s the kind of guy that will pour himself a glass and sip it like he’s drinking water. I can’t really handle drinking it, myself, but I sure do love the flavor it adds. I put just the right amount, in my opinion, of bourbon in this shake to give it the right balance. He opted to add more when he was halfway done with it. Totally up to you! Recipes for milkshakes are like recipes for sandwiches – they’re more like guidelines than exact instructions.

    So, if you’re looking for the perfect fall dessert that only takes a few minutes to throw together that you can enjoy when the kids go to bed, this milkshake is for you!
