When a box arrives in the mail from my friends at Martha Stewart Living, I always know there will be fun times to be had. This particular mail day I was excited to find they shared some adorable Martha Stewart glasses from Macy’s with me, and Kerrygold® Irish Cream Liqueur to experiment with! Given our recent heat wave and general summer celebratory mood, I decided to try my hand and mixing up a batch of spiked milkshakes for a simple dessert-cocktail.Combining dessert and cocktails in one almost shouldn’t be allowed, because they’re the two very best things you can consume – putting them together feels downright indulgent. Indulge we did, and blended together the velvety Kerrygold® Irish Cream Liqueur made with real chocolate (yum), scoops of coffee and chocolate ice creams, and served them in glasses drizzled with caramel sauce. These milkshakes demand a little whipped cream to finish them off, because go big or go home, right? These spiked milkshakes were a good reminder that I should probably use my blender more, because it’s one of the easiest ways to create a quick and easy treat or meal. It’s so quick in fact, that you can quickly blend a liquor free batch for kids (or as a mocktail for pregnant friends, I happen to have quite a few of those these days and I think they’d be delighted to hear milkshakes were on the menu!). It’s also a great base for tons of other flavor combinations. Swap in a vanilla ice cream or fudge swirl for different milkshake flavors, or jazz it up with a dash of sea salt in your caramel or swirl in hazelnut spread for nutty notes. Get the full recipe below and start mixing up your own batch!
