I suppose it is possible that I will have a better milkshake at some point in my life. But up to this point, this is easily the best milkshake I have ever had.
Coffee Bourbon Milkshake
2 c. Vanilla Ice Cream (we used natural vanilla with vanilla bean)
3 oz. Coffee Bourbon
Blend in a blender, food processor, or with a hand mixer until very well blended and creamy. At this point, it will be pretty runny. Return it to the freezer, and allow to cool for several hours or longer if possible. If you are very impatient, you can drink it any time. But if you make it in advance and allow it to cool, it will reach the consistency of a soft serve ice cream. Because of the alcohol, it will not freeze too firm, it will maintain this consistency.
I served this milkshake at the get-together with fellow bloggers Evelyn, Poppy, and Krista. And I know I heard the words “this is the best milkshake I’ve ever had”. I mixed this up a day in advance and was very happy with the result.
If you like thick, creamy milkshakes, and if you like coffee… you know what to do.
