September 12th is National Chocolate Milkshake Day and I am always up for celebrating anything chocolate by adding a little booze! This is exactly what it sounds like a, chocolate milkshake, just a little more spirited:
1 Oz. Chocolate Vodka
1/2 Oz. Irish Cream
Splash of Chocolate Liqueur
1 Scoop of Chocolate Ice Cream
Dark Chocolate Shavings
Rim the glass with some chocolate syrup then immediately place in the freezer. Combine the liquid ingredients in a blender and blend only until smooth, don't over blend, you don't want a thin milkshake!
Pour into your chilled cocktail glass, garnish and enjoy!
If, like me, you prefer a malt over a milkshake, feel perfectly free to add a teaspoon or so of malted milk powder. I prefer Carnation myself.
