Where to Find Boozy Milkshakes in Baltimore
Adding alcohol to sugary frozen cream is a craze we can get behind, although Baltimore is a bit slow getting on the boozy milkshake train. Here we present four early adopter bars where you can test the trend before it hits the city full force.
Abbey Burger: Build your own burger and then leave room for a spiked shake, or better yet, just go straight for the delicious high-octane beverage. Try the Berger Shake made with Berger cookies, vanilla ice cream, Stoli vanilla and Godiva liqueur (1041 Marshall St.; 443-453-9698).
Bobby’s Burger Palace: With three spiked options to choose from, including Vanilla Caramel Bourbon, Pineapple Coconut Rum and Mocha Kahlua Vodka, you can indulge between bets at the Maryland Live Casino outpost of the Iron Chef's burger joint (7002 Arundel Mills Circle #777; 443-445-2500).
Cheesecake Factory: Why not look out over the harbor with a spiked milkshake in hand the next time you need a cold rush on a hot day. With five to choose from, including the Twisted Salted Caramel Pretzel (Absolut Vodka, Licor 43, caramel, pretzels and ice cream), we wish you the best of luck in deciding (201 E. Pratt St.; 410-234-3990).
The Yard: You have to search to find this bar located in the Marriott Inner Harbor, but it's worth what you'll find when you get there. Order The Sweet Baby Jesus Adult Milkshake which is a delicious combination of chocolate-peanut-butter beer and vanilla ice cream (110 S Eutaw St.; 410-962-0202).
