Thin Mint Milkshake

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

If you haven’t popped a sleeve of Thin Mints into the freezer before eating them, then you haven’t lived. Inspired by the iconic, frozen mint chocolate cookie, this creamy spiked milkshake is made with vodka, vanilla ice cream, chocolate and crème de cacao. Fernet Branca Menta gives it a complex edge that let’s you know this is definitely a grown-up drink. It’s at once decadent and refreshing, improved only by the real deal frozen cookie as a garnish.
