FAQs

Can I Make This a Milkshake?

I’m not even sure this should be a question but the answer is unequivocally, YES! Toss everything into a blender with some ice and blend to your desired consistency. I dare say, ice cream would be a fantastic substitution as well.

Do I Have to Use Kahlua?

Any coffee liqueur will work. We just happen to be big fans of Kahlua.

Can This Cocktail Be Made in a Shaker?

The instructions for this recipe call for stirring but you could absolutely use a shaker. Toss everything into the shaker, give it a few vigorous shakes and pour over fresh ice.

Can I Make This Cocktail Without Dairy?

You can substitute the milk in this recipe with any non-dairy alternative such as oat, almond, soy or coconut milk.
