Adults-only Milkshakes

 from the Liberal Guy via FOXNews.

The Monkey Business

  •  4 cups chocolate ice cream
  •  1.5 cups milk
  •  1 banana
  •  2 oz Castries Peanut Rum Cream liquor (optional, but if left out add an additional 2 tbsp peanut butter)
  •  2 tbsp peanut butter
  •  3 oz bourbon (Jim Beam Black is a solid choice here – high quality, without being so expensive that you feel like an idiot for putting it in the blender)

Pour all the ingredients in the blender and pulse till smooth.

The Peaches & Cream

Peaches are about as summery as you can get. They're even better when they're combined with ice cream and amaretto for a fresh-tasting adult milkshake. Even better, since it has fruit in it you can pretend it's good for you, right?

  •  4 cups vanilla ice cream
  •  2 ripe peaches, peeled and chopped
  •  1.5 cups milk
  •  4 oz. amaretto liqueur
  •  2 oz. peach schnapps

Toss the whole mess into a blender and blend on puree for about 20-30 seconds until the mixture is smooth and there's minimal sign of peach chunks, which don't flow up bendy straws particularly well.

The Brandy Alexander

A classic cocktail that comes in a wide range of forms, including an adult milkshake, the Brandy Alexander was allegedly created in London around 1922. Normally made with cream or half & half, using vanilla ice cream makes it even more luxurious and summer appropriate.

  •  4 cups vanilla ice cream
  •  3 oz. crème de cacao (Marie Brizard makes a particularly tasty version)
  •  3 oz. brandy (Macieira is a Portuguese brandy with enough spice and oak to tone down the sweetness of the drink and add some much needed complexity)
  •  1.25 cups milk
  •  2 tsp. Vanilla extract (or split open 1 vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds and put them in the mix)

Drop all of the ingredients in the blender and give it a few pulses. Pour into wine glasses and toast the mad genius who thought ice cream and booze would be a perfect match.
