Boozy Milkshake with Wathen’s Bourbon

Ok so it hasn’t been an extremely hot summer so far, but even so, there are times when you may want something to cool you down and you want that something to include bourbon. Here’s a short and sweet recipe to a boozy milkshake I think you might like. I made these milkshakes last night and my boyfriend absolutely loved it.

For the recipe I went with Wathen’s Kentucky bourbon because it’s extremely creamy and also because of it’s sweet, vanilla, butterscotch tasting notes. The two paired very well together! If you don’t want to use Wathen’s, you can always substitute the bourbon and the ice cream to make it to your liking.

Recipe (5 ingredients)


2 Cups of vanilla ice cream
1/3 Cup of 2% milk
1/3 Cup of Wathen’s Bourbon
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg

Directions: Place all the ingredients in the blender, blend and serve.


  1. This recipe above makes one portion. It just about fills up a pint glass. To make two you will need to double up the ingredients.
  2. The 1/3-cup of bourbon really makes it a boozy milkshake. If you don’t want it to be as boozy as ours was, you should put less bourbon. We loved it the way it was, but I will say it was strong as well as amazing.
  3. I also made the recipe with chocolate ice cream. My boyfriend preferred the chocolate ice-cream milkshake while I preferred the vanilla. You can always substitute the ice cream for what ever you want.

The milkshake was extremely refreshing with a nice kick that came from the bourbon and the spices. What I enjoy the most about this recipe is how easy it was to make and how versatile it is because you can cater it to your liking.

It’s a good tasting drink to cool down and it will be a recipe we will be making more often throughout the summer.
