What’s better than a milkshake? A milkshake that gives you a buzz. If you’re looking for a sweet treat with a little bit of social lubrication, here are the five best in the city:
5. Guinness Milkshake at Mark Burger
If there’s one alcoholic beverage that lends itself particularly well to a milkshake, it’s Guinness. Mark Burger serves a deliciously simple glass of vanilla ice cream blended with one of the richest stout beers in the world.
4. S’mores Spiked Milkshake at Sidewalk Cafe
This is a great one to try if you’re feeling nostalgic for the last time you went camping. It has marshmallow vodka, hazelnut liqueur, chocolate syrup, graham cracker crumbs and vanilla ice cream.
3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Bomb at Bill’s Bar and Burger
For all you peanut lovers: this is a must try. It has Jack Daniel’s Honey with toffee crunch, chocolate ice cream and spiced peanuts. It’s like a peanut butter cup milkshake, but with alcohol.
2. Captain Kangaroo’s Cookie Craze at Big Daddy’s
Big Daddy’s serves three boozy milkshakes, all of which are delicious, but the Captain Kangaroo seems to be the most popular. It’s made with vanilla ice cream, vanilla vodka, and crushed Oreo cookies.
1. Super Shake at Cafe Lalo
This one sure packs a punch. It’s made with White Russian ice cream, espresso, cognac, Baileys and an extra shot of cream for added richness. Be careful getting home afterwards…
