Bourbon, Vanilla & Chocolate Milkshake

You'll never look at ice cream the same way again.


  • 3 cups premium vanilla ice cream, plus more if needed
  • 12 ounces whole milk
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 6 ounces high-quality bourbon
  • 6 tbsp chocolate syrup (such as Hershey's), divided


  1. Place 4 heavy pint glasses in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.

  2. Add the ice cream, milk, ice cubes, bourbon and 4 tbsp of the chocolate syrup to a powerful blender.

  3. Blend until smooth.

  4. (A good milkshake should be eaten with a spoon, so if the mixture seems too thin, add another .25 to .5 cup ice cream and blend again.).

  5. Divide evenly among the prepared glasses and top each with .5 tbsp of the remaining chocolate syrup.

  6. Serve immediately.
