Make Boozy Milkshakes This Weekend


Milkshake: a cold drink made of milk, a sweet flavoring such as fruit or chocolate, and typically ice cream that makes any backyard barbecue even better. Milkshakes are a staple in many people’s summer diets, mine included. While I have the luxury of riding my bike down the street and grabbing a great huckleberry milkshake from the Victor Emporium, I also like to experiment at home. This past weekend we had a fun Dishing barbecue filled with a delicious dinner, boozy milkshakes, and board games. We had quite a few requests for the milkshake recipe on our Instagram, @dishingjh, so we wanted to share it with you!

The milkshakes consisted of white chocolate liquor and crunched up snickers bar. I added chocolate and caramel sauce for an extra punch of flavoring and topped the shakes off with a floater of liquor and whip cream. The greatest part about this recipe is that you can add any type of candy that you would like, just make sure that it is crushed up really good so you can suck it through the straw. Paper and Grace has a great selection of fun party straws that make these milkshakes even more instagram worthy. They are the perfect treat to make this weekend or at your next barbecue.
