This delicious – and easy – alcoholic milkshake is infused with Baileys, Oreos, and chocolate syrup; this creamy indulgence is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and beyond!
I’m always in the mood for a good alcoholic milkshake. Whether you spike it, dose it, or flavor it with something fun, it’s a boozy milkshake – you really can’t lose in my humble opinion.
The particular boozy milkshake is something very special. There are so many things that make it delicious besides the Bailey’s: the banana, the whole milk or coconut milk (your choice). Then add the chocolate syrup, ice cream, and Oreos . . . it’s almost overwhelming!
But not too overwhelming to drink, trust me. I may have tried one for breakfast, and it may have been the most amazing breakfast beverage ever.
It would be perfect for brunch, for a signature party cocktail, or for a decadent dessert. Dunking Oreos into it might be fun as well.
What is a boozy milkshake exactly? Well – honestly there’s not that much difference between a milkshake with or without alcohol. You’re going to make it exactly the same way, but you’re going to add the booze during the process.
The nice thing about a Bailey’s milkshake (and one of the reasons why people choose to consume their liquor this way) is that you can’t really taste the liquor in it – especially when it’s Bailey’s.
Having said that, this is a pretty subtle drink, and not too strong. If you prefer your drinks a little stronger, you’re welcome to add in any liquor you like. If it’s me, I would add in 1 oz. of vodka to give it more of a White Russian style flavor.
You could also add rum to this boozy beverage and it would taste good, though it wouldn’t be (at least to me) quite as delicious as with vodka. That’s just a personal preference though.
I feel like I can taste rum pretty easily, while the advantage of this (in my mind) is that you can’t taste the alcohol so much (just yummy Bailey’s and chocolate!).

Once it’s all done, pour it into a glass and don’t forget the whipped cream and coconut. Maybe even add some banana slices. I’m just being gratuitous at this point, I know.
