You know how I said I don’t do Valentine’s day? Well I don’t really, but I thought you guys might like another Whiskey-based cocktail recipe! This time, I used Jackson Morgan’s Peppermint Mocha to whip-up a Whiskey Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Milkshake (for lovers!). It’s the perfect thing to share this time of year, or just make your own and don’t share with anyone. Up to you!
*Jackson Morgan sponsored this post, but all thoughts are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make PMQ for two possible.
You better believe Bruce and I had an old fashioned malt shop style shoot trying to get this Lady & The Tramp shot. In the end, it all came down to photoshop, but I regret nothing.
Everything you need to make a Whiskey Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Milkshake
For starters, you’ll need Jackson Morgan’s Peppermint Mocha Whiskey Cream. You’ll also need some chocolate ice cream, a dash of milk, whipped cream and a maraschino cherry (or two). Cute heart shaped bendy straws are also a good idea, but that’s your call.
Do you spy Bruce? He was like a dirty sock hanging around a bedroom during this shoot. He’s in half the photos and then when we needed him in the photos he was nowhere to be found! Scoundrel!
Making a Whiskey Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Milkshake
Much like making any milkshake, you’ll need a blender. I started by scooping some chocolate ice cream into the blender, and then topping it off with a splash of milk.
Oh look, Bruce… again.
Once your milkshake is nice and blended, add in the Jackson Morgan Peppermint Mocha Whiskey Cream. I used a double shot (because why not), and then hit pulse again for good measure.
To quote Rihanna “pour it up! pour it up!”and so I did. I then topped it with a generous amount of whipped cream (all the best drinks do), and a maraschino cherry to strike the perfect retro vibes. The heart bendy straws were added for pure LOLZ.
How delicious does that look?! It took everything I had to not devour it before taking some photos. I get props for self control right?
