Milkshakes have been a favorite treat of mine for a long time. My father would make them on extra-hot summer nights as a treat for my brother and I. We would get our nightly showers, get on our pajamas, and come downstairs to have milkshakes (vanilla for my brother, chocolate for me) while we watched the Phillies game with my dad.

The memory is still so fresh in my mind that I can smell the warm summer air drifting in through the screen door from the backyard, and I can almost feel wet hair on the back of my neck.

I may have grown up, but I have not grown out of milkshakes. I still love a good, frothy, creamy shake. Plus, now that I'm an adult, I can add some extra ingredients! Just about any creamy cocktail can be turned into a boozy milkshake.

Take one of my favorites: White Russian milkshakes. Typically, a White Russian is a cocktail with Kahlua, vodka and cream. To turn this into a milkshake, I used coffee ice cream and milk, then added the Kahlua and vodka. I only had whipped cream vodka on-hand, but regular or vanilla vodka would also work well.

As written, this is a strong drink that's not particularly thick. If you don't like your drinks that strong, reduce the amount of each liquor to 1 oz apiece. If you like your drinks thicker, either increase the amount of ice cream, or omit the milk.

These are such a breeze to whip up. I plan on keeping a container of coffee ice cream in my freezer all summer just so I can blend up some White Russian milkshakes any warm night I need to relax with a frothy treat.
