The only thing more American than apple pie and milkshakes is booze made WITH apple pie and milkshakes. And also the Electoral College. And though I sadly didn't have room in this recipe for electors chosen by popular vote on a state-by-state basis, I did manage to pack in hard cider, a pint of vanilla ice cream, and two slices of delicious apple pie. Now it's your duty as an American to drink it.

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
