If you prefer your drink shaken (not stirred), forget about ‘freakshakes’ and get your real milkshake on with a sneaky shot (or two) of booze. It looks better than it sounds, and trust us, it tastes even better than it looks.
We know it’s hard to look past a classic cocktail but if you’re after an alcohol infused milk fix, we’ve found you the best places in Sydney that are sure to bring all the boys (and the girls) to the yard.
Bourbon Cookie At Ribs & Burgers
Neutral Bay & The Rocks
What’s better than a cookie? A Bourbon Cookie. Wild Turkey American honey bourbon, dark chocolate sauce and actual choc chip cookies are magnificently mixed with ice cream and milk to bring you creamy goodness in a glass. Yes, this is actually a drink.
Salted Caramel Shake at Chur Burger
The Salted Caramel Shake at Chur Burger is pure milkshake magic. Add a dash of your chosen liquor to this old-school pick-me-up and you’re in for a milky good time. Bailey’s Sin at Milky Lane Bondi Baileys Irish Cream, vanilla 'house infused' vodka, Nutella and vanilla soft serve, blended with half a Snickers Bar, then topped with whipped cream and half a Mars Bar!? Need we say more? Didn’t think so.
Frozen Bourbon Milk Sundae at Hinky Dinks
The Frozen Bourbon Milk Sundae at Hinky Dinks will convert any hater of the sometimes controversial milk-alcohol combo to a lover. Thick, creamy and oh-so smooth, this cocktail will keep you going all night long, so much so, you’ll want it for breakfast.
Milk & Cookies at The Rook
Ever wanted your cocktail served with a cookie? Us too. And now, thanks to The Rook, all your milk and cookie hopes and dreams have come true. We 100% recommend dipping the cookie in this shake, which blends Havana Club rum, coffee, salted caramel and almond milk (for a touch of health?).
Oreo Shake at Cheekyburger
Paddington & Chippendale
Forget lick, dip and dunk and try a straight up shake at Cheekyburger. This Oreo milkshake is what dairy dreams are made of. Spike it with whatever spirit you want.
Down N’ Out
CBD & Penrith
If there’s one thing this popular pop-up knows, it’s how to shake up some milk. Enjoy a classic American milkshake (they’ve got allllll the flavours) and treat yourself with a shot of something strong if you’re having that sort of day.
Don't drink milk? Try Sydney's first vegan pub.
