Bourbon Coffee Milkshakes
So I am going to get this recipe in right before the New Year. Right before New Year's resolutions take all of the fun out of eating. Which is exactly what they are going to do to me. (I have been ordered by a medical professional to remove gluten, dairy and eggs for the first 3 months of the year. Ugg! More on that later) I am giving myself until the New Year to listen to that so I am currently eating gluten, eggs and dairy with wild abandon. Bourbon coffee milkshakes is definitely on that list of things to eat before the New Year.
My most recent vice seems to be coffee ice cream. For some reason that is what I have been craving lately. In order to pacify that craving I decided to make homemade coffee ice cream. Coffee ice cream is one of those things that as a kid, that was the flavor that no one wanted. Coffee? Gross. I will take cookies-n-cream or even better garbage can ice cream but never coffee. 20 years later I still love ice cream. Give me ice cream over a cookie any day of the week, but my flavor choices have progressed a little. I especially love ice cream if there is booze mixed in. It is like the best of all worlds right? Humphry Slocombe here in SF has my all time favorite flavor, Secret Breakfast, which has cornflakes and whiskey. Oh yeah. Seriously good.
So I decided to take the coffee ice cream that I made and make a good ol' fashioned adult milkshake out of it. Creamy coffee ice cream, blended with my favorite bourbon, milk and ice. Topped with homemade chocolate sauce, it is the perfect marriage of ice cream and booze. It is the ideal treat to end the year with. I plan on drinking them all New Year's Eve day until 2014 tells me I can't drink dairy anymore.
You can most definitely use store bought coffee ice cream (or any flavor for that matter) and store bought chocolate sauce but here are the recipes I used just in case.
Happy almost New Years!
