A boozy fall shake, ice cream, boozy apples and amaro in this apple pie milkshake!
The old saying “Good things come to those that wait!” gets floated around quite a bit, and for this recipe the saying holds true! But never fear, even if it takes a bit of time, you get two really great end results that you can use in your kitchen! Back in November we were at the Whole Food’s Share the Cheer event where we were prepping to preview some featured cocktails we had prepared for the holidays and we were chatting with Phyllis, one of the event staff at the Omaha Whole Foods about making some cool cocktails.
She mentioned that she had just recently finished a class on infusions, one of which was an apple pie vodka infusion. Obviously this is right up our alley, and before we knew it, we were sampling not only the infusion, but the by product, some deliciously spiced drunken apples. So an adult apple pie milkshake was born!

Apple Pie Milkshake
With our imaginations piqued, we figured we would try to make an apple pie infused vodka at home as we figured it might be a nice addition to our holiday revelry. We found a nice batch of Honeycrisp apples and decided that the combination of sweet and tart would work nicely in the infusion. We peeled and cored the apples, and diced them into chunks about 1/4th – 1/2 inch thick.
Be sure to peel the apples to prevent bitterness and to prevent the skins from being chewy on the apples. We let the apples and spices infuse the vodka for a week before straining them out.
What Ingredients are Needed for the Drunken Apple Pie Shake?
- For the Shake
- Graham Crackers
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- For the Drunken Apples
Not wanting to waste the apples, we decided they would be delicious in a boozy milkshake. Blended in with vanilla ice cream, some graham crackers for a crust and a shot of the sweet and spicy Amaro di Angostura to add a hint of rum and complex warm spices, this shake is like apple pie a la mode with an adult twist!
