To me, there is NOTHING like a cold, creamy milkshake on a hot day during the summer. And what better way to enjoy a milkshake with a little bit of bourbon in it?

Answer: there is none.  May 28th also happens to be National Burger Day, and burgers + milkshake = the most natural and American pairing since peanut butter and jelly.  So I whipped up this little boozy treat to help us all celebrate 'MURICA.

Here's what to do: 1) Scoop out 3 scoops of your ice cream into your milkshake glass. 2) Measure out 1 oz of milk and 1.5 oz bourbon into the milkshake glass on top of the ice cream.

3) Use a tall spoon or straw to stir and blend ice cream, bourbon and milk. 4) Take one of your fresh cherries and stick on top of garnish.
