Add some liquor to those shakes!

Is there any better way to reprieve the 90+ degree temperatures and absurd humidity of early August than a cool, thick and insanely decadent milkshake? Well, how about a cool, thick and insanely decadent milkshake made with liquor? Not only will one of these deliciously sinful milkshakes cool you down, they'll give you a little buzz, too. That's what we call killing two birds with one stone (or one strong drink).

These frozen cocktails, made with tart, sweet frozen fruit, creamy vanilla ice cream and top-shelf libations, not only taste great and give you relief from the oppressive heat, they are so easy to make. As you pour the ingredients into a blender, add booze and pulse! Yep, that easy. If you're feeling too tired (from the heat, of course) just stick a straw in the blender and drink up. We won't judge as long as you pass us a straw!
