Just Because: Pecan Pie Banana Milkshake for a Halloween-Inspired Soirée

Thanks to Pinnacle® Vodka for sponsoring this post and helping to make entertaining friends and personal R&R a delightful occasion.

Sometimes a girls' night in is absolutely necessary. And a themed soirée is a great time to practice entertaining in style. Put on your hostess hat and assemble a quick and easy movie night for you and your favorite girlfriend while the hubs take the kids trick-or-treating. And just because a mom’s work is never done, throwing together a soirée for friends needs to be simple yet welcoming. Set the ambiance using a fall-inspired tablecloth as the backdrop with a textured runner and Halloween-inspired décor. Of course, it wouldn’t be movie night without popcorn, so toss some into the microwave. Open a can of trail mix, pop open a bag of autumn-mix candy, concoct a serious decadent cocktail, and viola!—a lovely Halloween-inspired movie night for moms getting some much-needed downtime, all put together in less than 10 minutes.

And a themed soirée is a great time to practice entertaining in style. #PinnacleCocktailClub #PinnacleVodka #cocktailrecipes

 

Pecan Pie Banana Milkshake Recipe

Keep this blended beverage alcohol-free for a party with the kiddies. The kid-friendly version of this milkshake was a big hit with my two-and-a-half-year-old—she loved it!

What you’ll need:

  • 5 cups pecan pie–flavored Pinnacle® Vodka
  • 2 cups orange juice (chilled)
  • 2 cups milk (chilled)
  • 3 frozen medium ripe bananas
  • Whipped cream
  • Pecans
  • Ice

How to make it:

Blend orange juice, milk, and frozen bananas in a blender until smooth. Then add ice and pecan pie–flavored Pinnacle® Vodka and blend until frothy. Drizzle chocolate syrup into glasses (I used skull mugs for a spookier effect). Pour mixture from blender into glasses. Jazz it up with whipped cream and add a pecan on top to serve.
