PUMPKIN SPICE MILKSHAKE

SCENE: 

Ring, ring. Well actually, ding! It's 2016. My friend Stacy here in SF owns a wedding planning company, They So Loved Events, and texted me to see if I wanted to collaborate with her on a fall beverage concept. She was working with the wedding blog, Snippet and Ink to design fall decor and DIY ideas and needed someone for the food piece. I was delighted to help and it was suggested that I make a pumpkin milkshake. I got to work quickly. Luke and Vivi were my taste testers and requested a refill before they finished their initial serving. MORE! MORE! This is the perfect treat for Fall. How much pie can one really eat?

SONG: 

Shake, Rattle, and Roll
Whenever I drink a shake I imagine a 50's diner scene
