Boozy Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup horchata liqueur or RumChata
  • 2 cups ice cream
  • Whipped cream, to garnish (optional)
  • Maraschino cherry, to garnish (optional)
DIRECTIONS:
  • Using a food processor, blitz the Cinnamon Toast Crunch until well-crushed.
  • Combine the milk, horchata liqueur, and ice cream in a blender. Mix until well-combined and smooth throughout. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to chill until thick. 
  • Spoon the mixture into a highball or pilsner glass about ⅓ of the way up. Add a spoonful of the crushed cereal to make a ¼-inch thick layer, and repeat until you reach the rim of the glass.
  • Top with whipped cream and a cherry to garnish, if desired. Serve.
