Eggnog Milkshake

Eggnog Milkshake

Sharing is caring!

It’s eggnog season and we’re whipping up an eggnog milkshake with a boozy twist because ice cream is always in season!

Let’s face it, 2020 was a tough year. Now more than ever, we need to curl up with our favorite sweet treat (and a boozy kick can’t hurt!).

Ice cream can make the most wonderful time of year sweeter and more special when you’re sharing a scoop with someone you love.

Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Holiday Ice Cream

Sometimes the sweetest packages aren’t under the tree, but in the freezer.

While there are a lot of wonderful flavors of Hudsonville Ice Cream to choose from, Gavin’s all-time favorite is Hudsonville Ice Cream’s Limited Edition Peppermint Stick.

Throughout the season, you’ll also find delicious holiday ice cream flavors – another seasonal option this year was their Cinnamon Sugar Cookie flavor (you can get both of these flavors online in their holiday bundle!).

We used Hudsonville Ice Cream’s Creamery Blend Vanilla to take a regular vanilla milkshake and give it a holiday twist!

Boozy Milkshakes

After discovering the concept of boozy milkshakes from our favorite movie theater, we’ve been obsessed with making them ever since.

Last summer we hosted a modern ice cream sundae bar for grownups and featured boozy milkshakes. 

Check out the recap from that ice cream party for a peek at our tropical pineapple rum milkshake and a chocolate whiskey shake. 

For this holiday boozy milkshake, we paired traditional eggnog with a rye whiskey and it was a match made in heaven.

Milkshake Bar Garnishes

Milkshake Bar Garnishes

Make your eggnog shake even more festive by taking a tip from the oh-so-popular milkshake bars across the country.

Start by spreading frosting around the rim of your glasses.

Roll the frosting-lined rim in fun holiday sprinkles.

Cover your milkshake in whipped cream and sprinkle the egg nog shake with pieces of gingersnap cookies.

Feel free to add a gingerbread man as a garnish as well!
