It’s no secret that I love ice cream (you can find me stuffing my face here, here, and here). Oh, and I do love those heavenly milkshakes at Hopdoddy spiked with liquor. So I had to throw my very own milkshake party. Spiked with American Honey bourbon!

Set The Scene

What a spread!

Get the party started, and excite your guests into the fun with colorful, and punchy patterns. There’s nothing easier than throwing a tablecloth over your table. I’m loving this polka dotted one from Kate Spade!


Toppings Du Jour

Lay out a variety of toppings for your guests to choose from. Fresh fruit, chocolate chips, sprinkles, crushed nuts, cookie crumbles, whipped cream, salted caramel sauce, hot fudge, and don’t forget about the cherry on top.


Cone Or Cup?

Kate Spade Tumblers

Why not both? DIY ice cream cups, ice cream cones, waffle bowls, or tumblers. Love the pop of color from these KS tumblers and the gold rim!


DIY Milkshakes

Just follow this simple recipe for a single serving:

2 scoops ice cream
2-4 tbsp bourbon, or more
1/2 cup milk
toppings, optional

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Top with your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.


Make It Boozy

Spike your milkshake, and you can have dessert and a cocktail. Introducing the vanilla caramel bourbon milkshake with Wild Turkey American Honey® Bourbon. We really loved the combination of vanilla ice cream with the honey bourbon. Trust me, your guests will be saying, “More, please!”
