    I haven't made this before, but I just found the recipe & I can't wait to try it...

    Witches Brew (it came from a Halloween cookbook, but I suppose I could call it something different! )

    2 Cups apple cider
    1 1/2 to 2 cups vanilla ice cream
    2 tbsp honey
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

    Combine cider, ice cream, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg in food processor or blender until smooth. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg. Serve immediately (Serves 4)

    I haven't tried this yet; I just copied it down yesterday. I also have a soft pumpkin cookie recipe that is wonderful; I'll go look it up in a bit.

    PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE

    1 (15 oz.) can LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
    1 (12 fl. oz.) can NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
    1 (8 oz.) cup container vanilla low-fat yogurt
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    1 pint whipping cream

    COMBINE pumpkin, evaporated milk, yogurt, sugar and pumpkin pie spice in blender; cover. Blend until mixture is smooth. TOP with whipped cream; sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice.

    ********

    I don't see any reason you couldn't add RUM to the smoothie!
