Pumpkin Pie Cocktail

This is not a Tiki drink, or have anything to do with the culture.  I simply felt the desire, after swooping out of the high of apple season, to make a pumpkin drink.  It is a pleasant distraction during the cold months, even though not a warm drink.  I offer two recipes, whether for a small group of people or many, either way, a blender the tool for this drink.

Pumpkin Pie Cocktail

To Fill a Pitcher:
1 cup Appleton Estate XO
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. allspice
1 1/2 cup milk
5 cups vanilla ice cream

Blend until smooth.  Lightly dust with fresh nutmeg after pouring into pre-chilled glasses.

**Note:  What might work best, particularly for those with a normal blender, and not some fancy-schmancy, ultra-expensive blender, divide the ice cream for successful blending, keeping the ice cream liquified.

Pumpkin Pie Cocktail for Two

For 2 drinks:
2 oz Appleton Estate XO
1 oz pumpkin puree (canned)
1/2 oz sugar
pinch of cinnamon
1/2 pinch allspice
3 oz milk
10 oz vanilla ice cream

Blend until smooth.  **See note above.  Lightly dust w/ fresh nutmeg after pouring into pre-chilled glasses.
