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. Bailey's Irish Cream
Splash of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1 Scoop of Chocolate Ice Cream
Chocolate Syrup
Dark Chocolate Shavings

Chill your martini glass for at least 15 minutes then take out and quickly swirl some of the chocolate syrup around the glass bowl and immediately place back in the freezer.  Combine the Vodka, Bailey's along with the scoop of chocolate ice cream in a blender and blend only until smooth, don't over blend, you don't want a thin milkshake!
Pour into your chilled martini glass, garnish with the chocolate shavings on top 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.
