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.
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.
