Boozy Chocolate Orange Milkshake

As we are transitioning into the colder months (hello blanket weather) I am looking for any excuse to warm my cockles. One such excuse is adding booze to everything! Alcohol certainly warms up my belly as well as cheering me up on a rain-sodden day. As we have already to told you about boozy hot chocolate I thought I might try a more transition appropriate alternative - the boozy milkshake (still trying to squeeze out the last of the Indian Summer). 

You can try any flavour combination you want but I went my favourite standard milkshake flavour, chocolate, and added some Cointreau to give it a boozy orange kick. It was really rather comforting to drink with a wonderful alcoholic hit. I chose to use a rich vanilla ice cream to fluff up the milkshake and I love the flavour of vanilla. But I do recommended chocolate ice cream if you want ultra chocolate-y decadence. 

The boozy milkshake works best with flavoursome alcohol such as Cointreau. Rum, Amaretto, Creme De Menthe, Peppermint Schnapps and Creme de Cacao would all work very well.

Of course, jam jar and retro stripy straw are optional. 

Boozy Milkshake (serves 1)
You will need:
  • 150ml Milk
  • 2 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 tbsp Chocolate Powder such as Nesquik, Cocoa or Hot Chocolate
  • 10-25ml Cointreau
Make it!
  1. Pop all of your ingredients into a blender and whizz for 10-20 seconds. It's best to pulse to make sure you don't over whizz - you don't want to blitz the frothiness out of the ice cream.
  2. Pour into a chilled glass and sieve a small sprinkle of chocolate powder on top. (real chocolate shavings would be even better).
  3. Enjoy!


  1. This looks fantastic. I don't even *like* chocolate orange and I'd drink this. (Let's move on from me not liking chocolate orange.)

  2. Subversive chocolate milkshakes. I approve ; ) x
