Her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard, and now singer/chef/”Milkshake” maven Kelis is sharing that shake recipe with the world. In honor of National Chocolate Milkshake Day, Kelis partnered with Baileys to create “My Milkshake,” a boozy milkshake featuring the Irish Cream. I gotta hand it to Kelis, I expected a super standard boozy milkshake recipe, but she added some unexpected (and potentially delicious) ingredients, including ginger beer, cayenne pepper, and ginger-infused whipped cream (say what?!!).
You can find the full recipe and a recipe video for Kelis’ “My Milkshake,” below. Cheers!
4 Scoops Chocolate Ice Cream
8 oz. Ginger Beer
3 oz. Baileys Original Irish Cream
5 Pieces Candied Ginger
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
Chili Cinnamon (To Rim)
Ginger-Infused Whipped Cream
Blend chocolate ice cream, ginger beer, Baileys, and cayenne pepper. Rim a tall glass with chili cinnamon. Carefully pour blended ingredients into your rimmed glass. Top with ginger-infused whipped cream and candied ginger. Proceed to bring all the boys to the yard.
It didn’t take long for pumpkin season to arrive. And now that it has, you can expect to find your favorite beverages laced with pumpkin spices, pumpkin syrups, and even pumpkin booze. If you’re gently easing into the pumpkin frenzy and are looking for a pumpkin-y twist on a classic cocktail, then look no further than my Pumpkin Moscow Mule. Inspired by the flavors of fall, the Pumpkin Moscow Mule combines Smirnoff No. 21, ginger beer, apple cider (my fav!!), and pumpkin pie spice. You can find the full recipe, below. Cheers!
Pumpkin Moscow Mule
1.5 oz Smirnoff No. 21
4 oz. Ginger Beer
Splash Of Apple Cider
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Grilled Lime Wheel
Add Smirnoff No. 21 to a copper mug. Add ice. Pour ginger beer and top with a splash of apple cider. Top finished cocktail with a dash of pumpkin pie spice and a grilled lime wheel.
Not sure about you guys, but I’m super excited for fall, especially fall cocktails! Fall technically doesn’t start until September 22, but I find that there’s absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t prepare in advance. To make sure you’re at your most Lushworthy when fall rolls around, I’ve compiled a short list of my favorite, fall-friendly “Lushworthy Creations.” In case you’re new to the site, “Lushworthy Creations” are drink recipes created exclusively by moi.
Pecan Pie Old Fashioned (Pictured Above): I’m not one to name favorites, but the Old Fashioned is easily one of my boozy favs. What I love most about the Old Fashioned is it’s really easy to get creative using a variety of bitters and even a flavored whiskey, which is exactly what I did with my Pecan Pie Old Fashioned. [Full recipe here]
Skinny Spiked Cider: Not sure why apple cider is a million times tastier than apple juice, I’ll just chalk it up as one of life’s great mysteries. I really had a great time creating this Skinny Spiked Cider given that it was one of the first recipe videos I created for Lushworthy. [Full recipe here]
Boozy Nutella Shake: For me, fall is all about indulgence. And suffice it to say that, Nutella easily falls into the indulgence category. So, for my Boozy Nutella Shake, I opted to combine Nutella with Pecan Pie Whiskey to create a sinfully delicious cocktail. [Full recipe here]
If you can’t already tell from my last recipe, I’m really having a great time mixing up drink recipes with Chambord. A raspberry liqueur straight out of France, Chambord is super versatile and tasty all on its own. It can be mixed with just about any spirit to create a Lushworthy concoction of your choosing.
For my latest recipe, I wanted to create a cocktail that was heavy on the spirits, instead of one heavy on a variety of mixers. I opted for Van Gogh Acai Blueberry Vodka and Chambord, and gave my drink a tart edge with the addition of fresh lemon juice. And since I wanted an extra ingredient that would provide a little pizzazz, I opted for chamomile bitters.
You can find the full recipe to my “Pretty In Purple” cocktail, below. Cheers!
1 oz. Chambord
1 oz. Van Gogh Acai Blueberry Vodka
Splash Of Lemon Juice
3 Drops Chamomile Bitters
Combine Chambord, Van Gogh Acai Blueberry Vodka, and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe cocktail glass. Top with three drops of chamomile bitters. Garnish with lemon peel.
Can you believe how fast summer has gone? It’s hard to believe we’re already in the final weeks of barbecuing, pool hopping, and sipping on tropics-inspired cocktails. Since my love for summery cocktails runs deep, I created a special drink to help us bid adieu to the season. I call it the End Of Summer Fling. Cute, right? The spirits I’ve used for this particular cocktail are Grey Goose and Chambord.
I wanted to keep my creation relatively light, and I also wanted the flavor from the Chambord to really shine through, so I opted for Lemon La Croix and fresh lime juice to top off my cocktail.
Check out the full recipe to the “End Of Summer Fling,” below. And cheers to an awesome remainder of summer!
1 oz. Chambord
1 oz. Grey Goose
6 oz. Lemon La Croix
Lime Wheel Or Black Raspberries (For Garnish)
Add Chambord and Grey Goose to a glass with ice, and stir. Top with La Croix. Add more ice, if desired. Add a hearty squeeze of fresh lime. Garnish with lime wedge or black raspberries.
Whether you’re a tequila aficionado or a boozy novice, we should all bask in the Lushworthy glory that is National Tequila Day (July 24).
