Strawberry Alcoholic Milkshake
When making an alcoholic milkshake, one of the first steps you take is selecting what kind of spirit you are going to use to make the boozy milkshake! With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, we turned to the fruit of the season, strawberry! Rather than turn to a strawberry syrup, we turned to the Mozart White Chocolate Cream Strawberry Liqueur!
Starting out an alcoholic milkshake with a liqueur that combines white chocolate and strawberry in a single spirit makes for a great start to a sweet treat. The Mozart White Chocolate Cream Strawberry Liqueur has a flavor of strawberries and cream, but also avoids being cloyingly sweet like some flavored liqueurs. Combined with the white chocolate cream, the strawberry flavor set the stage for a great milkshake.
Stopping with just one spirit seemed a little too easy, and since we love layering flavors in our creations, we added a nice aged Demarara rum to add a rich deep flavor. The rum added a little caramel flavor which is a perfect addition to a milkshake! A splash of amaretto adds a nice hint of sweet almond flavor that reminded us of the toasted crust from a good strawberry cheesecake!
Mozart Chocolate Liqueurs
Now that the booze part of the alcoholic milkshake is done, its time to get down to the dessert part of the milkshake! Since we had this great combo of strawberry, rum and amaretto that reminded us of a strawberry cheesecake, we decided to embrace part of what makes a cheesecake so great, cream cheese! The cream cheese adds a creamy tang to this alcoholic milkshake which really pulls out the strawberry flavor.
What Ingredients are Needed for the Strawberry Milkshake?
- Mozart White Chocolate Cream Strawberry Liqueur
- Demarara Rum
- Cream Cheese
- Graham Crackers
- Cookies N Cream Ice Cream
A strawberry cheesecake flavored shake wouldn’t be complete with out a good crust, so we definitely needed to add a bit of crust to this milkshake. However this is where we ran into a bit of a disagreement between the two of us, as Jay loves an Oreo crust while Leah loves the classic graham cracker crust.
Rather than argue, we just decided that a little and graham cracker wouldn’t hurt! We needed a little ice cream to add the right thickness, so rather than using just plain vanilla, we blended in a little Cookie and Cream ice cream. With the Oreo crust part taken care of, we added some graham crackers and more strawberries for color and flavor!
This was one great cool treat, and one we definitely hope you will give it a try (if only to try out the super yummy Mozart White Chocolate Cream Strawberry Liqueur!) on your next summer evening where you need a real sweet dessert!
