Boozy Milkshakes to Keep You Cool This Summer

by Jennifer Waldera on Jul 6, 2015 in Roundups

Few things say “summer” like indulging in ice cream on a hot day. While we like to be transported back to childhood with a messy cone every now and then, there are some days that call for a little kick in our ice cream concoctions. The clever bartenders behind these boozy beverages know how to make that happen.
 
This alcoholic shout-out to Baltimore’s favorite iconic sweet treat, the Berger Cookie, combines decadent Taharka Brothers Berger Cookie ice cream with milk, Stoli Vanilla, and Godiva liqueur. Blended together, then topped with whipped cream and a Berger Cookie, could there be a better Baltimore-inspired boozy beverage? For those who don’t feel like trekking to Fed Hill, you’re in luck - Abbey Burger Bistro is set to open another location on Broadway in Fells Point. (1041 Marshall St.; 443-453-9698)
 
Family Meal’s Frederick location sports a hearty list of adult milkshakes making a drive to Frederick a worthwhile summer afternoon mission. Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie (bourbon, mint, cookies), Irish Coffee (Jameson, coffee, vanilla ice cream), and Strawberry Rhubarb (strawberry, rhubarb liqueur, marshmallow) are on the list, in addition to a grown-up root beer float. (880 N East St.; 301-378-2895)
 
With Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Ice Cream as the base, Monin Salted Caramel Syrup, chocolate syrup, dark creme de cacao, Bacardi OakHeart Spiced Rum, and Guinness draught beer are blended in and then topped with whipped cream, caramel, chocolate and…? Crispy applewood smoked bacon. Yes, bacon. Delicious. (601 E Pratt St.; 410-347-7625)
 
The Yard
This Marriott hotel bar’s Sweet Baby Jesus Milkshake combines DuClaw’s peanut butter porter with Sloop Betty vodka and Kahlua with vanilla and chocolate ice cream from Prigel Family Creamery. Kelis, watch out - this might be better than yours.(110 S Eutaw St.; 410-209-2853)
The chain restaurant popular with burger lovers is also home to five different alcoholic shakes. The Bailey’s Irish Cream Shake is a simple blend incorporating the popular liqueur into ice cream and chocolate. Beer shakes include the Blue Moon Beer Shake (Blue Moon Belgian White beer, Cointreau, orange juice, and vanilla soft serve) and the Irish Beer Shake (Guinness, Jameson, chocolate, and soft serve). The Kahlua Jamaican Shake uses the popular coffee flavored liqueur combined with Grand Marnier, amaretto, and vanilla ice cream and the Spiked Grasshopper Shake uses Absolut vodka to spike the classic mint brownie shake with mint syrup and brownie pieces. Yum, indeed. (3821 Boston St., 410-327-2080)
 
Already known as being home to a wide variety of decadent desserts, the Cheesecake Factory kicks up its milkshakes with some boozy twists. On the fruity side, the Strawberry Creamsicle is a smooth blend of strawberry ice cream with amaretto and vodka. The Flying Gorilla features dark chocolate and banana liqueur in a chocolate banana shake. (Harborplace & The Gallery, 201 E Pratt St.; 410-234-3990)
