We might have found perfection in a glass: These restaurants each take classic milkshakes and load them with liquor.
CEREAL MILK WHITE RUSSIAN AT MOMOFUKU MILK BAR
Brooklyn, New York
At Momofuku Milk Bar in Williamsburg (the only bakery of the minichain’s five that serves spiked shakes), Christina Tosi’s hallmark soft-serve flavor, cereal milk, provides the base for the Cereal Milk White Russian ($9)—a blend of organic whole milk soft serve, vodka, and Kahlua.

DIRTY GIRL SCOUT AT TED’S BULLETIN
Shaketenders at the two-year-old Ted’s Bulletin—a retro-themed diner buzzy enough to draw President Obama—whip up specialties such as the Dirty Girl Scout ($8.99), a sort of liquid Thin Mint made with chocolate ice cream, peppermint schnapps, and crushed Oreos. “We wanted to go boozy with our shakes, but they’re not meant to catch a buzz—you don’t put back four of them,” says Executive Chef Eric Brannon. (Another Ted’s is scheduled to open this winter in D.C. on 14th and Swann.)

Lynn’s Paradise Café gives a nod to Kentucky’s homegrown hooch with its Bourbon Ball Milkshake ($10.25), a mix of 90-proof Woodford Reserve, vanilla ice cream, semisweet chocolate chips, and walnuts.
