Are you feeling lucky? Maybe you will be after we tell you about our latest cocktail creation, the Boozy Lucky Charms Milkshake. Combining your favorite childhood breakfast cereal with vodka is so wrong it's right, especially when you throw in your own marshmallow-flavored cereal milk.

Isn't this kind of how we should have been eating this cereal all along?

Lucky Charms milk recipe

Based on Milk Bar's recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • 3 cups milk

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread out cereal over parchment paper on cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Toasting brings out a richer flavor, but it also gives a caramelized taste due to the marshmallows melting slightly, so skip this step if that's not your scene. Let cereal cool completely.
  2. Combine milk and cereal in a pitcher and let steep at least 20 minutes, longer if possible. Strain and chill until ready to use.
