So tomorrow is the Fourth of July, and sure, that’s always prime grilling/cookout season — but how about an after-dinner drink?
Especially in this heat.
But this bourbon milkshake recipe from Saveur got my attention.
The maple syrup adds a nice little depth of flavor that kind of brings more of the bourbon out, as opposed to the peanunt butter, which can be a little dominant in this setting. It creates a nice contrast.
2 oz. bourbon
1⁄2 oz. maple syrup
1⁄4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup vanilla ice cream
1 cup ice cubes
It’s a milkshake — combine it all in a blender and whip it up until it’s nice and smooth and frothy. This is just a single serving, but if you’re trying to mix up the desert game, I highly recommend.
