Coffee bourbon milkshake

Yes, you read that right. I am featuring a grown-up milkshake on this fine Cocktail Thursday. I have never in my life had a more delicious milkshake. This, my friends, is the drink that really made coffee bourbon pay dividends.

Yes, please.

It’s more than a little ironic that I am posting this now, since I have sworn off processed sugar for a month, but a girl can dream, can’t she? Besides, I first made it a few weeks ago, but I thought it was a more appropriate drink to feature in fall. Then I made it again. And again.

This milkshake is perfectly dreamy right out of the blender, but it’s even better if you freeze it for a little bit first. It will firm up a bit, but it won’t completely freeze because of the alcohol content. However you enjoy it, definitely use a top-quality ice cream — it makes a difference. This is one reason I’m happy to be back in Texas: Blue Bell!

Coffee Bourbon Milkshake
Based on this recipe from Boozed + Infused

2 cups vanilla ice cream
3 oz coffee bourbon

Combine the ice cream and coffee bourbon in a blender and blend until well-combined and creamy. Serve in a martini glass, or freeze for a couple of hours (or more) before serving, until it reaches the consistency of soft-serve ice cream.

  1. My god. If I make these at Christmas for my inlaws, I’ll be the favorite sister in law for the next ten generations.

  2. This sounds SO good! Btw, I’ve given up processed sugar for a month before too – it’s hard (sugar is in EVERYTHING) but so worth it!

  4. oh dear goodness! I just made this because I had to infuse the bourbon first and it was amazing. I made it when we had friends over for dinner so I used up all the bourbon and I admit I am a bit sad and contemplating making more….

    • Awesome!! I am running very low on mine (made a double batch) and I need to start infusing some more). It has been a huge hit around here, and it’s awesome for use in desserts, too.

  5. Oh my, this looks so sinfully good… Love the choice of ice cream by the way 😉
