Bourbon Chocolate Milkshake

Labor Day is almost here! I’m serving whiskey burgers and seasoned fries, but what beverage would go with that classic American meal? How about a boozy milkshake made with all-American Kentucky bourbon? I thought you’d like that. Thank goodness I had to buy a bottle to make the glaze for the whiskey burgers. That’s one less thing I need to buy to make this Bourbon Chocolate Milkshake.

Bourbon, chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream? Don’t mind if we do. This Bourbon chocolate milkshake is perfect for any occasion.

The Ingredients

I have a habit of saying how much I like simple recipes, but this has to be the simplest one I’ve ever found. Just 3 ingredients: bourbon, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate syrup. I even had 2 on hand, so all I had to pick up was the ice cream.

By the way, I went with dark chocolate syrup. I love, love, love dark chocolate! The recipe just says “chocolate syrup”, so I took that as any kind of chocolate syrup.

The Process

With only three ingredients and one step in the instructions, this Bourbon Chocolate Milkshake sounded easy. And it was! The most difficult part was spooning the ice cream out of the container because it got pretty hard while it was in the freezer.

That’s okay, though, because my blender can handle anything. I had my milkshake prepped, blended, and poured in 3 minutes. I topped it with a bit of canned whipped cream for funsies. And who could skip the cherry? It’s practically mandatory in these situations!

Clear & Accurate Directions
Appearance
Taste
My bourbon chocolate milkshake was delicious! I could taste the bourbon, but that's not a bad thing. Cocktails that mask the taste of the alcohol can lead to over-indulging. The slight sweetness of the bourbon went well with the chocolate syrup and ice cream. The consistency was a little thinner than I would have liked. I'm wondering if adding a few ice cubes would help with that and not dilute the taste. Still, it's a pretty minor thing and the milkshake is worth making again.
