This Boozy Baileys Milkshake proves that milkshakes aren’t just for kids! Made with vanilla ice cream, creme de cacao, and of course, Baileys, you can have your fun and eat it too!
Every Valentine’s Day, my husband and I have the *BEST* tradition. We eat sundaes and watch horrible ‘so-bad-they’re-amazing’ movies. If you’ve been a long time blog reader, you’ll remember that last year’s movie was the Star Wars Christmas Special. It was amazing. It was SO BAD. From Jefferson Starship to an alien cooking show, to wookies named Itchy and Lumpy, I highly recommend. It will be so hard to top that one this year! But we’re going to try.
Because this year, we’re watching Star War The Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West.
Yes, more Star Wars, the one thing we love most in this world is also one of the most awful things in this world in hilariously spectacular ways.
Backstroke of the West is a version of Revenge of the Sith that was translated into Chinese, and then translated literally back into English with hilariously awful results. A copy recently surfaced where someone has actually dubbed over the words as well. I haven’t seen it yet (obviously), but I’ve seen rumours that the last scene, you know where Anakin becomes Darth Vader, and says “NOOOOOOOOO!”, the scene where we’re supposed to feel his heart-wrenching pain and full transition to the dark side? Yeah, apparently it’s translated into “DO NOT WAAAAANT”.
I’m beyond excited.
This year we’re also upping our sundae game with these fantastic boozy Baileys milkshakes! They are extremely easy to make, and are fantastically delicious, especially with all the trappings of sundaes on top.
Basically the instructions are put ice cream in blender. Put booze in blender. Blend. Enjoy! I’ve also topped them with this fantastic recipe for 5 Minute Chocolate Sauce that I posted for last Valentine’s Day. As well as sprinkles, and some whipped cream.
You can’t have a sundae without a cherry on top, so let’s toss one of those on too!
What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day?
- 6 large scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1 shot (1 oz. OR ~40 mL) Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
- 1½ shots (1.5 oz. OR ~60 mL) Bols Cacao White (or other creme de cacao)
- Or to taste. This was quite strong, you could definitely taste the alcohol which is how we like it. If you don't want it to be so strong, reduce the amount of Baileys and creme de cacao.
- Scoop the vanilla ice cream into a blender.
- Add the Baileys and creme de cacao. Blend until smooth.
- If necessary, wait 5 minutes for the ice cream to melt a bit before blending if you find it's sticking.
And that’s not all! Check out these awesome Valentine’s Day Recipes from some of my very favourite blogging friends!
