First off, before you ask yourself whether or not you should take a milkshake recipe from Kelis with a grain of salt, know that the Grammy nominated singer is a trained chef and graduate of Le Cordon Bleu.
The recipe for this particular milkshake involves Baileys Irish Creme liquor, a cayenne-spiked cinnamon rim, ginger candy and ginger beer. This is how a milkshake becomes a tease on the playground.
Refinery29 has the recipe and accompanying video where, according to Kelis, people still always ask her what’s in her milkshake. Time to come up with a better pickup line, guys.
3 oz Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur
8 oz Ginger Beer
4 scoops Chocolate Ice Cream
5 pieces Candied Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Chili Cinnamon Rim
Ginger Infused Whipped Cream for Garnish
Combine Baileys, ginger beer, chocolate ice cream, candied ginger and cayenne pepper in a blender with a cup of ice. Blend until smooth.
Pour mixture into glass with chili-cinnamon-sugar rim (1:1:1).
Top with ginger infused whipped cream and a piece of candied ginger.
Check the yard.
