Let’s play ball! I’m getting ready for the playoffs with this Bourbon Caramel Corn Milkshake, but keep this one for the adults! The kids are going to have to get their own treats today!
What says baseball to me? Tailgating, hanging with my friends and family (mostly my boys) and food.
Oh yeah, there’s the Yankees too and watching the actual game…but the food and drinks have a lot to do with the whole experience.
I’m a die hard Yankee fan as you probably know by now. I’ve got season tickets in the bleachers and I wouldn’t change my seats for anything. It does get hot sometimes and yep, not so much fun when it’s raining but it all adds to the fun.
But desserts don’t really get a lot of play time on my menu so I thought I’d switch it up and make this boozy milkshake. Because there’s always ice cream and cracker jack at baseball games right? So let’s combine it all…add a few shots of bourbon and see how it goes.
For this milkshake I’m actually going to use caramel corn to stand in for the cracker jack. I didn’t want to add peanuts into the mix and I definitely didn’t want to fish out the popcorn for an hour so I went with a bag of straight up caramel corn.
Add in a big handful of caramel corn to your blender.
Scoop in your favorite vanilla ice cream or custard…
A few swirls of caramel sauce and then pour in the bourbon.
And dig in.
I’m going to wrap this up with a big “Let’s go Yankees!!” as we head into playoff week…but I’m going to be the bigger person and give a small shout out to the Mets too.
It’s a big deal for them, I get it.
But we all know who I’m rooting for.Print
