Spiked Milkshakes Four Ways



Summer’s here (sort of!) and milkshakes are the perfect sweet and creamy dessert to enjoy in glorious weather. However, sometimes a little-added extra is needed in a milkshake, so in the alcohol comes. There are endless varieties of flavours with spiked milkshakes, and there are plenty of alcohol types that suit these milkshakes perfectly, such as rum and vodka, so there’s plenty of room to find a flavour that hits the spot! We’ve put together four amazing flavours for you to try at home. These milkshakes can also be made without the alcohol for everybody to enjoy.




A Spiked Strawberry milkshake is perfect for just about anyone. They’re a tasty and refreshing drink. The alcohol in this milkshake can be replaced with whatever alcohol you prefer; the two that will complement that flavour best are vodka and white rum. There isn’t a lot of preparation involved in this one, and it can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes.




-       40ml Vodka

-       40ml Strawberry Liqueur

-       2-3 scoops Strawberry Ice Cream 

-       Strawberries (handful)

-       Splash of milk

-       100ml Double Cream (can be omitted if too heavy)




Blend the strawberries in a blender, once blended add the ice cream, double cream, milk, Vodka and Strawberry Liqueur to the blender and mix until smooth. Pour the milkshake into a milkshake glass, garnish with whipped cream, strawberries and a straw.





The Pina Colada milkshake is a creamy and fresh drink that definitely takes you to the tropics. They’re perfect for the summer heat that we’ve been having over the last couple of weeks. This rich and creamy milkshake is perfect even without the alcohol.




-       40ml Rum

-       100ml Pineapple juice (can be more or less depending on your taste)

-       2-3 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream

-       60ml Coconut Cream

-       Splash of milk (can replace with coconut milk for more flavour)




Add the rum, pineapple juice, ice cream, coconut cream and milk to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the mixture to a glass and garnish the glass with a pineapple wedge and a straw.





A Spiked Vanilla milkshake is quite similar to a Spiked Strawberry milkshake except they’re for the plain Janes amongst us! These shakes are made with dark rum but that can be replaced with whiskey for a slightly different flavour. This milkshake is creamy and full of flavour thanks to the rum and added vanilla extract. This one is great for playing with different flavours; add mint ice cream instead to make a shamrock shake!



-       40ml Dark Rum

-       50ml Double Cream

-       2-3 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream 

-       A drop of vanilla extract

-       50 – 100ml Milk

-       Ice




Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the mixture to a glass and garnish with whipped cream, a strawberry and add a straw!






A Chocolate Orange Shake is a creamy shake that’s full of flavour. They’re sweet and luscious and are definitely more of a dessert than a refreshing drink. This milkshake can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes.




-       40ml Cointreau

-       40ml Baileys

-       2-3 Scoops Chocolate Ice Cream

-       50 – 100ml Milk

-       Cocoa Powder




Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the mixture to a glass jar and garnish with whipped cream, cocoa powder and add a straw!
