It has been up and around triple digits here in Richmond for the past week. I have been moving to a new house and really needed something to cool me down. So I mixed a little ice cream, some cookies and a little booze and what do you have?An Oreo Blast Spiked Shake, of course!
Oreo Blast Spiked Shake (makes 1 shake)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 4-5 Oreo cookies
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
- 1 oz chocolate Syrup
Start by adding the milk to the mixture. It is a good base. That way you can add the liquor last, in the event there are any kids around that want a non-alcoholic drink.
I found out that about 4-5 cookies was the amount of cookies you should add before the Oreo flavor takes over the whole drink and is incapable of being sucked through a straw. However, you can always add more if you like.
Then add the chocolate syrup and ice cream and blend.
Now it is time for the good stuff. Add the Kahlua and Bailey’s and give it another blend. Taste, and serve. You can always add a bit more of the good stuff if you like a stronger flavor.
I found that this drink hit the spot. It was cool, refreshing and totally beat the 100 degree temperatures down here.
