Boozy Desserts: Adult Milkshakes With RumChata

  Adult Milkshakes

Milkshakes are an all time American classic. Whether you enjoy them at your favorite ice cream shop, or you prefer to make them at home, you can’t go wrong with one of these frozen sweets on a hot Summer day. Remember when you were a kid how happy you got when your parents bought or made you a milkshake? It was the highlight of your week! We’d be lying if we said we don’t get a little jealous now as parents watching the joy on our kids faces. Seriously though, why should the kids get to have all the fun?!? We’re all grown up now, so why can’t our milkshakes grow up too?!? We’re talking adult milkshakes!

Adult milkshakes are exactly what they sound like, frozen milkshakes with alcohol added. One of our first experiences with adult milkshakes was our first trip to Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. In Nola they pretty much spike EVERYTHING, so we had one in the middle of the day (day drinking!) and have been hooked ever since. You’ll find them on the menu at a few restaurants in some cities, but if you don’t want to leave your house or you’re “frugal” (see: cheapo) like me, you can make them at home!


They’re super easy to make, all you need is a blender and your ingredients. You can go as simple as vanilla ice cream with some booze, or go crazy with exotic flavors, toppings, and syrups, aka the works. One thing to keep in mind is you don’t have to go all out with liquor. If it’s too strong you might get turned off, we prefer to use liqueurs instead, they’ll give it some buzz, some flavoring, and blend right into the sweet creaminess of the ice cream. Generally we go for 2:1 ratio of ice cream to booze (2 scoops, 1 oz) but you can play around with it yourself, don’t be afraid to let the creativity flow!

With the heat index over 100 degrees for a few days in a row now (Thanks Florida!), now seems like the perfect time to whip some of these up to cool us off. If you remember, a couple of months back we partnered with RumChata to share an awesome spiked iced coffee recipe, and I thought RumChata would make the perfect mix-in for these boozy adult milkshakes.
