Sometimes it’s fun to play around with your cocktail.  Instead of a milk punch, I decided to go one step further and create a dessert-like cocktail.  The bourbon, milk and vanilla ice cream combine to make your weekend cocktail fun and delicious.  Invite your friends over for milkshakes and movies and enjoy!

Bourbon-Vanilla Milkshake Recipe

Servings: 8


  • 2 cups Bourbon
  • 1 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg, plus for garnish


Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes, or until all the ingredients are well mixed. Serve, and garnish with extra nutmeg.
