Insanely Delicious Alcoholic Milkshakes

When it comes to boozy milkshakes, it turns out people will travel pretty far.

That’s because ​Turning Stone Resort Casino​ has taken these dreamy alcoholic milkshakes to a whole new level at their Upstate Tavern in Verona, New York.

If you’re not familiar with the idea of a boozy milkshake, you’re in for a treat. A mind-blowing, chilly, yummy, grown-up treat. I promise you haven’t been this excited since you first heard of ​rosé ​ice cream. These shakes – which come in flavors like Candy Bar Crush, Boozy Banana, and Mocha Brownie – are spiked and over-the-top decadent.

One look at these photos and a four-hour drive from New York City isn’t stopping anyone. More than 200 sold in one week alone (in the dead of winter)!

“We have visitors from every region of the country and even Canada. And they come in so excited to try these fully-loaded shakes! The hard part is deciding which one.” said Mallory Winters, Turning Stone Assistant Pastry Chef.

The ingredients will immediately make your mouth water and the height of the toppings really does seem to defy gravity.
