I can’t think

of anything better.

Hot Fudge Bourbon Milkshakes

[discovered on Pinterest, adapted from Imbibe Mag]

makes 2 big shakes

1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 ounces bourbon

1/2 cup hot fudge + 2 tablespoons

At the bottom of each glass, add 2-3 tablespoons of hot fudge. In a blender, combine milk, ice cream, vanilla extract, bourbon and about 1/4 cup of hot fudge. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into glasses and top with bourbon whipped cream + a another tablespoon of hot fudge.

Note: hot fudge milkshakes have been one of my family’s summer staples my entire life. They are MUCH better than regular chocolate milkshakes, and I highly encourage you to try one sans bourbon too!

 

Bourbon Whipped Cream

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon bourbon

1 tablespoon sugar

Whip ingredients together in an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Top shakes. [I used this neat thing my brother got me for Christmas one year.]

Pinterest is killing me.

    Really? I couldn’t correct my mistake the first time. I’ve never HAD bourbon. Good. Now I really think I need this drink to cool off.

    I love alcohol in desserts…rum cake, bananas foster..I am a big fan

    And bourbon milkshakes? Wow.

    There is no better combo than getting semi tipsy off desserts/sugar. I mean, really…it just screams perfection :)
