Chocolate Covered Cherry Spiked Milkshake – Thirsty Thursday

Chocolate Covered Cherry Spiked Milkshake – Thirsty Thursday

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.

Spiked Milkshake

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.

Shamrock ShakeCome February every year, I am always on the look out for the golden arches to release the Shamrock Shake.  I love that minty, delicious and creepy green milkshake.  I dream about throughout the year.  So I decided to go and try to make it myself.  It was simple and now I can drink them all year long.

Homemade Shamrock Shake

Fill a blender with 2 cups of vanilla ice cream.  Make sure not to use the natural vanilla as the black vanilla bean bits will stand out in the shake.  It is a tad creepy looking.

Fill the blender with the ingredients

Add 1 1/4 cups milk.

Then add 1/4 tsp mint extract and 10 drops of green food color.

Homemade Shamrock Shake

Blend until smooth.  Top with whipped cream and you have a delicious Shamrock Shake Clone.

The Insomniac Spiked Milkshake

The Insomniac Spiked Milkshake

Every week  I try to feature an amazing cocktail.  This week includes one of the best creations I have ever made.  This cocktail started yesterday when I featured cold brew coffee on my blog.  Cold brew coffee is brewed slowly and creates a nice smooth bitter-less coffee concentrate.  Therefore, I wanted to create a cocktail that utilized this amazing coffee concentrate.  Then I decided that it would make an amazing milk shake.  One thing led to another and the idea that alcohol would be amazing in a milkshake was born.  Crazy how ideas come together.

I also drizzled caramel around the glass before filling it with the milk shake.  The golden caramel goes great with the Kahlua and Bailey’s.
