Peanut Butter Bourbon Milkshakes

This recipe could easily be called “Chocolate peanut butter milkshakes” or “Maple bourbon shakes” or any combination thereof. There are so many flavors, but somehow, they all work magically together and create a delicious adult treat.

My family recently took a mini vacay in the beautiful mountains of north Georgia and it just so happened to be over my birthday weekend (Yes, in our family we have birthday weekend events. One day just isn’t enough). We played games, went horseback riding, and made a round of birthday shots. Yum! But perhaps one of my favorite treats of the weekend was this frozen, chocolately gym. And boy does it pack a punch! I made two batches, each batch made enough for about 6 small shakes. These little guys are so rich, you definitely don’t want a diner-sized milkshake glass. Think rocks glass with ample room to add whipped cream 😛

Peanut Butter Bourbon Milkshakes
Makes: 6 servings   Cook time: 5 minutes

The making of! Ignore my sister eating a burrito...

4 shots of your bourbon of choice
2 cups of ice
2 cups chocolate ice cream
1/3 cup peanut butter
2 Tbs grade A maple syrup
Whipped cream (optional)
Mini Reese’s candy, chopped (optional)


  1. Place bourbon, ice, chocolate ice cream, peanut butter, and maple syrup in a blender. I used my sister’s Ninja and it was magical.
  2. Blend to your desired consistency all the big chunks of ice are gone. Divide among 6 glasses (about 6-8oz glasses).
  3. Now my favorite part! Top with lots of whipped cream and chopped mini Reese’s.

This shake was the perfect treat for a fun afternoon filled with games and lazying about the mountains. It’s easy to whip up for guests and looks oh so pretty piled high with toppings. Enjoy!
