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.
