Ladies and gentlemen, we all knew there would be a bourbon milkshake appearance as soon as we decided to make There Will Be Blood-inspired drinks. We even considered getting a bunch of straws and linking them together to create one big straw that reached across the room, but then we just decided to forego the straws and drink it up in huge gulps.
bourbon ice cream
1 cup milk
In a mixing glass, combine 2 scoops ice cream and milk and blend with an immersion blender. (If you don’t have an immersion blender, a regular blender will also work.) Add another scoop of softened ice cream to the glass you’ll be drinking out of. Pour blended shake into glass. Add shaved chocolate to the top.
The final product is a creamy delicious milkshake with the right amount of bourbon and chocolate. We used Taza stone ground Mexican chocolate, which we cannot recommend enough. It’s sweet with a touch of spice with a grainy texture that comes from the stone grinding process, both of which add little touches that push the flavor right over the top.
