Summer is here and there is nothing better than cooling off with one of these 11 milkshakes that will make you forget about your plan to get in shape for summer:
11 Milkshakes in NYC
The Cookie at Black Tap Burger
Yeah, everyone is basically obsessed with the milkshakes at Black Tap Burger right now. And for good reason. Not only are the sweet concoctions Instagram-friendly, but the different flavors – including Oreo Cookies & Cream, Nutella and U Bet Chocolate – are delicious and addictive. They also have their Shakes by Black Tap that features The Cookie, Sweet’n Salty and Cotton Candy(featured below). 529 Broome St. and 248 W. 14th St.
The NameShake at Butter & Scotch
Butter & Scotch is bakery in Brooklyn where you can get milkshakes like the NameShake (above) that features Monkey Shoulder Scotch, Butterscotch Caramel, and vanilla ice cream. You can also order regular cocktails and a number of other fun pairings like The Mary Ellen (A vodka martini & hot fudge Sundae.)
Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake at Chick-fil-A
This fast food joint opened up last year and already has rabid fans lining up daily for the chicken. But the shakes are nothing to sleep on, either. There are basics like Chocolate and Vanilla, plus standouts including the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake. If you like variety they also add different flavors with the season. 1000 Avenue of the Americas.
Cotton Candy Milkshake at Big Daddy’s NYC
Big Daddy’s Burgers, Shakes and Tots has three locations that they serve this Cotton Candy Milkshake; plus they only cost $7.00. www.bigdaddysnyc.com
Black & White Shake at Shake Shack
As the name suggests, Shake Shack knows a thing or two about ice cream beverages. Made with the Shack’s hand-spun vanilla and chocolate custard, the Black & White Shake is so decadent and delicious, you may not even have room for a burger. Just kidding. Various locations, www.shakeshack.com
Harlem Shake (Red Velvet) at Harlem Shake
Go to Harlem for this Red Velvet Shake by the name of Harlem Shake, obviously. If you don’t like red velvet you can pick from one of the other flavors that include salted caramel, peach, strawberry, peanut butter, double chocolate bacon, wild cherry, or cookies & cream. Shakes start at $4.50 to 6.25. www.harlemshakenyc.com
Bananas Foster Milkshake at BareBurger
We already loved BareBurger for their mouth-watering organic, grass-fed beef patties. But we keep coming back for the shakes, especially the Bananas Foster Milkshake made with all-organic vanilla ice cream, milk and fruit, topped with caramel sauce. Yes, seriously. Various locations; www.bareburger.com
The Nut Crack’r at Momofuku Milk Bar
They recently turned their crack pie into a boozy milkshake called the Nut Crack’r. Ingredients include: simple syrup, Frangelico, Crack Pie Soft Serve and a pinch of salt. We are also obsessed with the Cereal Milk soft serve at Milk Bar – and ever more obsessed with the shake version. Various location: milkbarstore.com
Cold Brew Milkshake at Oddfellows Ice Cream Co.
The brainchild of Sam Mason, Oddfellows Ice Cream Co. is known for their off-beat flavors like chorizo caramel swirl and tobacco leaf-smoked chili huckleberry made from locally sourced milk from Battenkill Valley Creamery. We loooove coffee and what could be better than Grady’s Cold Brew Milkshake? While they don’t have an official milkshake menu, the shop is happy to turn any of the 8-10 flavors available daily into a 16-ounce shake. Also: ice cream floats made with Virgil’s gourmet soda. 175 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 347.599.0556, oddfellowsnyc.com
Cotton Candy at Black Tap Burger
Black Tap Burger’s second Milkshake on the list is the Cotton Candy Milkshake that you can find at both locations, in Meatpacking and SoHo. This shake is $15.00 but be prepared to wait in up-to a two hour line. www.blacktapnyc.com
Pie Shake at Hill Country Chicken
Hill Country Chicken makes chicken and fresh baked pies, but you should go there and get the Pie Shake that is vanilla ice cream blended with their pie of the day. They have two locations, one in Flatiron / NoMad in Manhattan and another one on Adams Street in Brooklyn. $6.25.
