Sorry kiddos this one is for grown ups only. Although this tipsy black cherry shake looks innocent like a virgin, it’s boozy. And not overly sweet at all.
Getting into business with this tipsy shakes is like opening Pandora’s box, once you started and there is still vanilla ice cream in the freezer, there will be no end. No fruit will be save anymore. Don’t get me started on what you can do to a shot of espresso, dark rum and a splash of caramel sauce. Would you prefer vanilla or coffee or caramel ice cream? Or maybe Frangelico hazelnut liqueur with chocolate ice cream topped with pan roasted hazelnuts? You can find boozy shakes on the menu of several restaurants all over Atlanta. The reason might be simple as it is, they are so good and will blow your mind, I mean your taste buds. There is a nice place just next to the Piedmont Park, serving a shake à la Elvis with peanut butter, banana and whiskey. That’s a square meal.
Remember those days, where you had to pick between either a dessert or a drink after dinner? This shake is the perfect symbiosis, shake and booze are in a relationship and together they are creamy and rich, fruity and tangy and a little tipsy. Get your blender out!
