Holy Milkshake Mamma!!

As I was reading through the NY Times food section last Wednesday my heart stopped as I read the article on the marriage of my two favorite things: ice cream and liquor! I knew instantly I had to share this with the world (or my few favorite blog readers!). What better way to end a fabulous dinner party? It combines dessert and a nice after dinner buzz. Make these classic chocolate chip cookies to serve with your "adult" milkshake and bring all your guests back to their youth sans alcohol of course. 

It's best to serve these very rich concoctions in small pilsner glasses like these.
Below are recipes from the article plus a classic milkshake recipe so you can experiment and make your own yummy alcohol filled ice cream drink.
