Disaronno goes down so smooth in a vanilla milkshake!
Why don’t I make milkshakes more often? This really hit the spot! None of my guests believed me that there was alcohol in this milkshake. Each milkshake has a shot of amaretto in an otherwise vanilla milkshake. Amaretto is an almond liquor that goes down so nice, it’s the perfect compliment to a milkshake.
I opted for old fashioned vanilla ice cream rather than vanilla bean. I used Tillamook, which is such an underrated ice cream brand! I am actually mildly lactose intolerant and I cannot stomach (literally) some of the richer ice cream brands late at night but Tillamook I can eat just fine. It’s slow churned and a little lighter but you don’t sacrifice any of the flavor.
Disaronno is my favorite liquor, hands down. If you’ve never tried it, you’re in for a treat. You can of course sub out any amaretto that you like but to make it The Rose Table’s amaretto milkshake, it’s got to be Disaronno.
This is a pretty drinkable milkshake. If you want it thicker, add another scoop or two ice cream. I wanted to keep it pretty drinkable since I paired this with a dark chocolate doughnut at Disney Dinners: Cars. Milkshakes with stuff on top is so trendy so I thought it would be a fun ending to the dinner, especially since the doughnut was supposed to be reminiscent of a car tire. Just thread a skewer through a doughnut and place the skewer in the milkshake! Get my dark chocolate doughnut recipe here.
Note: I tripled this at Cars for six milkshakes.
