Boozy Cocktail Shakes

The mid-winter blahs are settling in, which means it’s time to kick it up a notch or two.  It’s tough to plan a vacation around work and school every other month, wouldn’t that be a “multi” joyful experience, so bringing a touch of summer to a cold February day is a necessity.  A really good milkshake is a great thing and a boozy milkshake is an even better one.

The recipes are simple, plug in the blender and let it do it’s job.

As I was reading the ingredients list for this first post, I was a tad unsure about the combination of flavors.  However, I can tell you with absolute certainty now, they blend very well, but then again, it’s Saveur Magazine.  Of course it’s delicious.

Vanilla Ice CreamA post for milkshakes “grown up”, simply isn’t complete without an ode to BAILEYS®.  With such fabulous flavors at your fingertips, Original Irish Cream, with a hint of hazelnut, with a hint of mint chocolate, with a hint of caramel and with a hint of coffee, the milkshake possibilities are endless.
