A Back to School Celebratory Milkshake (for the grown ups!)
It’s back to school season and it’s hard not to notice it. Everywhere I go I see the sales, the autumnal plaid shirts and shorts and the smiling faces of moms and dads who are looking forward to a little break. As much as I am happy to see the approach of fall, I’m also already feeling nostalgic for those days in the sun.
This weekend we’re having some friends over for a little pool party. I want to both celebrate Back to School while also keeping in mind that summer hasn’t quite ended yet.
I have a drink that will do the trick!
It’s a boozy orange and vanilla milkshake. The liqueur is there to add some celebratory zing while the creamsicle flavors are there to conjure up the joy of frozen treats on long summer days.
Potent Creamsicle Milkshake
For each person: In a blender whiz up 1 and 1/2 cups French Vanilla Ice Cream, 1 ounce Triple Sec (or any orange liqueur) and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Blend until smooth. Pour the creamy mixture into a martini glass and then squirt on some whipped cream.
