How to Make a Caramel Corn Bourbon Milkshake Cocktail

I have finally officially lost my mind when it comes to boozy milkshakes. Yes, today I have blended caramel corn, sweet and spicy hazelnuts, vanilla bean ice cream, and bourbon. This milkshake is for someone who has a sweet tooth or who is obsessed with caramel corn like me! The weather has been slightly toasty so I have been craving ice cream.

The reason I love boozy shakes is that they combine your favorite dessert with your favorite booze. This way you can have a sweet treat spiked with booze. In this case you are getting the whole package which includes spicy, sweet, and boozy goodness. The addition of the caramel drizzle just adds a decadent flavor that sends this boozy shake over the top!

This would be a fun milkshake to serve in shooters at a dinner party for a kicked up after dinner dessert. How cute would individual mini shakes be with caramel corn and caramel drizzle on top? I would seriously lose it if this was served to me as a dessert!
