Bourbon Strawberry Milkshake

Since I started the week off with a cheeseburger soup recipe, it seems kind of natural to end the week with a milkshake. But not just any milkshake! You know I like my milkshakes a little boozy. I haven’t posted a bourbon recipe in a while, so this bourbon strawberry milkshake recipe popped up at just the right time. My husband thinks it’s an odd combination; I think it will totally work. Time to find out who’s right LOL!

This strawberry milkshake is creamy, cool and full of bourbon! This is a sweet adult, boozy, sippable treat!

The Ingredients

The list of ingredients for this bourbon strawberry milkshake is short and sweet. Unsurprisingly, the bourbon is the most expensive item, but you don’t need to use much. You could always buy a small bottle if you don’t drink bourbon regularly or just want to save a little.

Also, I bought strawberry ice cream that’s had chunks of strawberries mixed in. I highly recommend you do the same—they put this recipe over the top.

The Process

This bourbon strawberry milkshake recipe couldn’t have been easier to make. The ratio of ice cream to liquid was perfect and didn’t give my blender any problems. All I had to do was add the ingredients, hit the milkshake button, and blend for a minute or so. The consistency of the finished product was a little thin, but that made it easy to drink with a straw. No waiting for a too thick milkshake to thaw.

The total time on this recipe was 7 minutes, just under the 10 minutes listed. That includes making the milkshake and garnishing. The recipe does say it makes 2 servings, but I ended up with 3 full pint glasses. Not that I’m complaining, but you can’t really store the extra shake and drink it later. Good thing my husband was on hand to help with the extra!

So how was it?

Clear & Accurate Directions
Accurate Time(s)
This is a boozy twist on a classic! Bourbon pairs so well with a creamy milkshake without overpowering the strawberry flavor. The chocolate syrup drizzle is an easy way to decorate the glass and adds a subtle chocolate flavor. This sweet treat is quick and easy to make, taking just a few minutes to mix, pour, and garnish. Even my husband had to agree adding bourbon to a strawberry milkshake really works 🙂
