  • Gather your ingredients.

  • This is a pretty basic version of the adult milkshake.  You can get really creative with this though by substituting ingredients.  Some ideas:
    • Use banana liqueur with strawberries and chocolate liqueur to create a banana split
    • Use hazelnut or almond liqueur to give it a nutty taste
    • Use any sort of flavored vodka to impart a unique taste
  • Wondering how I got the top of the drink nicely swirled with chocolate?  I poured a dab of chocolate syrup on the top and then used a toothpick to create the swirl design.  It’s much easier than it looks!
  • Some folks might find this to be a bit “strong” tasting for a dessert drink.  If you’re sensitive to the taste of alcohol, try reducing to 2oz or 3oz of liqueur.
