Maker’s Mark Milkshake

Grown-up milkshakes are all the rage today, and restaurants are serving them up with style. Leave out the kick for the kids to enjoy, but do serve this shake with a side of thick sliced bacon on a stick, if adding the bourbon. Don’t think about the nutritional aspects, just blend and savor.


Bourbon Butter Pecan Milkshake


2 shots of your favorite Bourbon

1-1/2 cups butter pecan ice cream, packed

1/2-cup whole milk

2 tablespoons toasted pecans

1/4 vanilla bean, scraped, seeds only, or ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1-tablespoon Vermont maple syrup

Caramel syrup

Whipped cream



Place all ingredients in a blender except for the caramel and whipped cream. Puree on the highest speed for a minute or two until smooth and creamy. Pour into a large pint glass or two 8-ounce glasses, top with whipped cream, and drizzle with caramel syrup. Serve immediately with a side of sliced bacon to nibble on.

  1. Thanks Terra! Happy New Year!
    Melissa- Vanilla Bean would be a nice touch with the Makers Mark and Caramel.

  2. Oh my word, was my first reaction! This shake truly would be the hit to any party! Yum, Hugs, Terra

  3. This sounds fantastic, however, I am allergic to pecans (actually all nuts except peanuts). What do you think would be a good substitute for the butter pecan ice cream?
