Drink your dessert with these Pumpkin Cheesecake Pudding Shots! They are super easy to throw together in a blender with no wait time. Top them with whipped cream, pumpkin spice and a graham cracker crust rim for a dreamy dessert shot experience.
I’ve been toying with the idea of a pumpkin cheesecake cocktail for awhile now. However, I actually wanted the drink to taste somewhat like the dessert. A lot of recipes just don’t seem to have the actual cheesecake flavor that I’m craving. The easiest way to accomplish this, is with instant cheesecake pudding and pumpkin puree.
Blending in a bit of vanilla ice cream gives you plenty of creamy dreamy goodness and makes this shot instantaneously delicious. Of course, a bit of pumpkin spice and Rum Chata give you that extra bit of desired pumpkin pie flavor. You can use regular vodka or sweeten things up even more with a bit of vanilla or pumpkin pie vodka (SO good).
That’s one tasty looking rim job folks! Just dip that shot glass in a bit of caramel or maple syrup and give yourself a nice thick coating of graham cracker goodness. Check out some of my other favorite cocktails to get through the holidays!
