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.
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.
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!
