In the heat of the summer in NY, a delicious milkshake can go very far in cooling off the day. Adding some alcohol to said milkshake can go ever further in improving one’s mood! Restaurants all over the city are popping up with their own boozy milkshakes, with recipes easy enough to make at home for those who are feeling adventurous. While the scale and dentist may not approve, a boozy milkshake is a real sweet treat worth indulging in on a particularly hot afternoon or evening. Cheers!
GO Burger on the upper east side offers three distinct and delicious treats for those hot August days. The Grandma’s Treat and Night Rider were particular favorites – perfect for a first date, family outing or meeting spot to watch a sporting event. (Sorry, no delivery for these boozy cocktails, but you can get their equally yummy non-alcoholic milkshakes to go!)
