Boozy Milkshakes You Don’t Want To Miss

The great thing about alcoholic milkshakes is that you can use pretty much any booze you like.

So, while Bailey’s and Kahlua are pretty common, spiced rum or vanilla vodka are terrific additions.  

Of course, most of these adult shakes can be made without alcohol. But where’s the fun in that? 

I guarantee you’ll want to try all 20 of these brilliantly boozy milkshakes. So let’s get to it! 

1. Boozy Coffee and Bourbon Milkshake 

I love ordering coffee with dessert after a nice dinner. So why not combine them both into one delicious nightcap?

Bourbon and coffee are a tasty combo, so this milkshake will not disappoint. Use any type of bourbon or coffee ice cream; the customizations are endless. 

I would even take it up one more notch and drizzle chocolate sauce into the glass before the milkshake is poured. 

Top it off with a chocolate chip cookie. You can dunk it or devour it with this buzz-worthy milkshake.  

2. Boozy Chocolate Milkshake with Whiskey 

Chocolate is a tried and true milkshake flavor. But who says it can’t be improved upon?

If you like whiskey, this boozy milkshake should be right up your alley.

Just add your choice of whiskey to your favorite chocolate ice cream and blend it into a mouthwatering dessert. 

This recipe includes malt powder which makes it a little richer and sweeter. It may be old-fashioned, but there’s a reason it’s still going strong. 

 3. Boozy Shamrock Shake 

The Shamrock shake is synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day. It’s green, minty, and super yummy.

Creme de Menthe is responsible for the minty flavor in this alcoholic treat. But you’ll also use vanilla vodka, which adds a lovely sweetness. 

No matter what holiday you’re celebrating, this shake is a wildly fun snack or dessert.

4. Baileys Milkshake 

This is what Irish cream dreams are made of. 

Baileys Irish cream and vanilla ice cream are blended together to create a sinful frozen dessert

It’s perfectly smooth in texture and flavor. And there’s just enough Bailey’s to get that signature taste in every sip.

This milkshake comes with a dollop (or mountain) of whipped cream, and a chocolate swirled glass.

It’s so good, it will be gone before you can blink. 

5. Boozy Baileys Oreo Milkshake 

Cookies and cream is a long-time crowd favorite with kids and adults alike.

So you might want to wait until after bedtime before making this grown-up milkshake. 

Add Baileys to a blend of vanilla ice cream and Oreos for added creaminess and a slightly boozy flavor.

To make this even more adult, add vanilla vodka too. On its own, vanilla vodka tastes like whipped cream, so it will make your milkshake taste incredible. 

Make this milkshake as a happy hour specialty or to end the night with something sweet. 

6. Strawberry White Chocolate Boozy Milkshake 

White chocolate is so underrated, in my opinion. It’s sweet, creamy, and totally dreamy!

And white chocolate with strawberries? Perfection.

The fruity brightness of a strawberry works so well with mellow white chocolate. It looks pretty amazing too.

This milkshake has multiple liquors to achieve the best flavor. So while it may be a little extra, it’s more than worth it. 

7. White Russian Winter Milkshake 

This is a coffee lover’s idea of boozy milkshake heaven. It has lots of liquor and even more coffee flavor. 

Use your favorite coffee ice cream, then blend it with Kahlúa and vodka.

Add some chocolate sauce to the glass and top with whipped cream. Even if it’s snowing outside, this milkshake will warm you up.

8. Bourbon Milkshake with Hot Fudge 

Hot fudge sundaes bring back all the best childhood memories. But we’re grown-ups now, so let’s add bourbon!

This alcoholic milkshake has all the components of a nostalgic hot fudge sundae.

To create a creamy base, vanilla ice cream is blended with milk and vanilla flavoring. Plus, there’s hot fudge in the glass.

Topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry, you might not even know this baby is boozy.

But it is. There’s a generous glug of bourbon in the mix that’ll put a big smile on your face.

9. Spiked Samoa Milkshake 

You don’t have to wait for Girl Scout cookie season for this milkshake. You can whip up this family favorite any time of year. 

Blend dulce de leche ice cream with rum, coconut, coconut milk, and a pinch of salt. 

The textures and flavors in this shake are better than a $5 box of cookies. 

10. Boozy Birthday Cake Milkshake 

Have your cake and drink it too with this boozy birthday cake milkshake. 

Bailey’s Irish cream is the adult base that brings lovely richness. However, you can also add cake batter or vanilla vodka for the “cake” flavoring.

Of course, there’s plenty of cake batter flavor without the vodka, thanks to the birthday cake sandwich cookies.

This baby really does taste like cake in a glass. And nobody has to know it’s not your birthday!

11. Frozen Irish Mudslide – Boozy Milkshakes 

This adult milkshake is sure to be a hit on St. Patrick’s Day. But it’s just as tasty the rest of the year. 

There are three types of liquor in this recipe: Irish whiskey, Bailey’s Irish cream, and Kahlua. 

Together with ice cream, they become a rich and creamy frozen dessert. This shake is sweet, decadent, and delicious. 

12. Key Lime Milkshake 

Key lime pie is a spectacularly tart dessert. When blended into a milkshake, it becomes this zesty dance of sweet, tart, and creamy. 

Tequila is the drink of choice for this milkshake since it goes so deliciously well with lime.

Try coconut rum for a tropical twist if you’re not a tequila lover. 

Either way, this tangy shake is perfect for a warm day poolside or a sweet end to a long week.

13. Boozy Strawberry Shortcake Milkshake 

I’m all for recipes that give you two desserts in one. So you know I’m in love with this pink delight.

This is a milkshake with strawberry shortcake inside AND on top. I mean, wow!

Vanilla ice cream and frozen strawberries make a simple homemade strawberry shake.

But don’t worry, that’s not all! There’s also cake-flavored vodka and a slice of actual cake!

When the cake is blended into the ice cream, you get the most incredible taste and texture.

14. Boozy S’mores Milkshake 

Unfortunately, this shake would be pretty difficult to make while sitting around an actual campfire.

Luckily, you still get all the best s’mores flavor with every sip. 

Use smoky booze, like a single malt whiskey or mezcal, and a glug of marshmallow vodka if you can find it.

You’ll also roast marshmallows until they’re gooey and charred. Maybe make extra because I have a feeling a few will get “lost” along the way.

Add some Graham Crackers to the shake along with chocolate ice cream, and you’ll be singing campfire songs all night. 

15. Boozy Nutella Shake 

If you haven’t tried it before, I’m here to tell you that Nutella is fantastic with ice cream. 

This milkshake recipe is super simple since the chocolate and hazelnut spread will do all the heavy lifting.

Just add vodka and Nutella to vanilla ice cream and milk, and voila. 

Top with whipped cream, and be sure to keep the kids away from this Nutella dessert.

16. Boozy Amaretto Peach Milkshake 

As much as I love chocolate, I adore fruity milkshakes. And this one is pure decadence.  

With Amaretto and peach flavors, this is like your favorite peaches and cream dessert. 

It’s creamy, fruity, and perfectly balanced. 

As always, top it with a heaping dollop of whipped cream and sip away!

17. Boozy Pumpkin Pie Milkshake 

Calling all pumpkin spice lovers! Now you can enjoy your favorite pumpkin pie flavors in warm weather and with alcohol!

This milkshake includes pumpkin, spice, and everything nice (or naughty).

Three types of liquor go into this holiday favorite: spiced rum, Irish cream, and coffee liquor. So it packs quite a punch.

It all comes together to create a perfectly luscious dessert in a glass. 

18. Irish Coffee Milkshake 

Your favorite, simple coffee cocktail just got a frozen makeover. 

Espresso and vanilla ice cream blend together with whiskey to become a dreamy boozy delight.

But that’s not the best part!

You have to try the coffee and chocolate syrup. It’s irresistible.

19. Pina Colada Milkshakes 

If you like Piña Coladas, you won’t mind getting caught in the rain after sipping on this one. 

Rum, crushed pineapple, and a whole lot of coconut make this tropical treat an extra special dessert.

It’s tart, sweet, and boozy enough to leave you dreaming of a faraway beach. 

20. Dirty Banana Cocktail 

Banana and ice cream are a classic combo. Especially with chocolate and strawberry.

But banana and coffee? 

Chocolate, coffee, and banana are a surprising match made in heaven. Add rum, and you have a drink made by angels. 

The banana flavor stands out just enough between the coffee and chocolate, but it’s not overwhelming.

You might even forget that it’s alcoholic, so try not to drink it too fast!
