I love ice cream, I love chocolate and I love bourbon. Yep, ice cream and bourbon. It is getting hot outside and the best way to beat the heat is a spiked milkshake. Milkshakes with liquor are awesome! I have created a new spiked milkshake that mimics the flavors of a cherry cordial. It is so good that you will not even know that there is alcohol in it. The key to this cocktail is Jim Beam’s Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon. It is super tasty. So this summer, beat the heat with the tastiest spiked milkshake around! The now imfamous, Chocolate Covered Cherry Spiked Milkshake.
Chocolate Covered Cherry Spiked Milkshake
Add 1 1/2 cups of ice cream, 3 oz of milk, 0.5 to 1 oz chocolate syrup (to taste), 2 maraschino cherries and 2 oz of Jim Beam Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and a cherry.
This recipe makes a large milkshake, but honestly you will not care. It will prevent you from having to make a couple small milkshakes. I could have had about 3 more of these, but unfortunately I figured that I did not need 6 shots of bourbon in me, Haha.

Spiked Milkshake Tip
When making ice cream drinks the perfect ratio is 3:1. Three parts ice cream to one part liquid. In the case of the milkshake above, we are using 2 1/2 cups (~ 18 oz) of ice cream for 6 oz of liquid. The 3:1 ratio will always give you the perfect ice cream drink. Use it for regular milkshakes, spiked milkshakes or even daiquiris made with ice cream instead of ice.
