We’ve never met a boozy milkshake that we didn’t like, but this coffee-flavored concoction is on its own level of deliciousness. Carlene Thomas, our wedding wellness expert, shares the recipe for this fun and flavorful summertime treat.
I just love when you can combine two amazing things—in this case, cocktail hour and desserts! Boozy milkshakes are fun and cute but not overdone in the way that cupcakes are. Plus, there are so many ways to personalize this cocktail for your event, from the straws to the flavors and garnishes. Mini versions are a smart, chic way to keep milkshakes at the optimum temperature, and they’re sure to make guests smile!
Makes 4 normal servings or 8 mini shakes
• 1 tray of ice cubes
• 1/2 cup of 0% Greek yogurt
• 1 shot of Kahlua
• 1 shot of Baileys
• Fresh cherry for garnish
• Whipping cream
Add ice cubes, yogurt, Kahlua, and Baileys to a blender and pulse until there are no large chunks of ice remaining. In a chilled bowl, whip cream for topping. Pour the “milkshake” into glasses, then top with a dollop of cream and a fresh cherry.
