You’ll never look at ice cream the same way again.

3 cp  Premium vanilla ice cream, plus more if needed
12 oz  Whole milk
3   Ice cubes
2 oz  Good-quality bourbon
6 tbsp   Simple chocolate syrup, divided
Glass:
Pint

HOW TO MAKE:

Place 4 heavy pint glasses in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.
Add the ice cream, milk, ice cubes, bourbon and 4 tbsp of the chocolate syrup to a powerful blender.
Blend until smooth.
(A good milkshake should be eaten with a spoon, —so if the mixture seems too thin, add another .25 to .5 cup ice cream and blend again.).
Divide evenly among the prepared glasses and top each with .5 tablespoon of the remaining chocolate syrup.
Serve immediately.
