As bourbons go, I seem to like Maker’s Mark pretty well. It’s one of the few American whiskies to call their bourbon a “whisky” instead of “whiskey”. So, on a day when I let myself indulge a bit, I thought a Maker’s shake would be tasty!
I just took some vanilla ice cream, a bit of milk and a pour of Maker’s Mark, mixed it up in the blender, and poured it into, of course, an old-fashioned glass. Simple and delicious! While several Scotch whiskies could be used, this just seems to work well with bourbon.
How much of each? Well, just a bit of milk, meaning about a quarter cup. Ice cream to taste… The thicker you like your shake, the more ice cream. And the Maker’s? Also to taste. I used about 2 ounces for 2 servings, or I guess you could say 1 ounce per serving.
