While there are plenty of milkshakes in Las Vegas to "bring all the boys to the yard" everywhere you look, sometimes you want an adult milkshake in Vegas that you can actually drink, and might as well put some liquor in it while you're at it. Milkshakes always taste a little better when they're a bit naughty, and you won't find a naughtier selection of milkshakes than the menu that Sin City offers.
We decided that it was about time to put in our two cents on the best adult milkshakes in Las Vegas, because this is a very important topic close to many of our hearts. They say the quickest way to get to a man's heart is through his stomach, and we're thinking that these milkshakes must be the reason for all those Vegas weddings, and not just because of the alcohol level. Here's a list of the best milkshakes in Las Vegas and whose yard you have to go to to find them.
Holsteins Shakes and Buns at the Cosmopolitan"Four Bam-Boozled Shakes, please, heavy on bam!" Despite the fact that we have to say "bam-boozled" out loud in public, we keep coming back for more. The shakes run about $11 each, and they are literally all good, which is shocking because so is everything on the rest of the menu as well. We don't know what it is about that burger/shake combo, but this dynamic duo hits all the right spots, probably better than any of the others in town. We can't really make a claim to state our favorite shake, so we'd highly recommend just trying them all, and not missing out on the seasonal flavors either. There's nothing wrong with any of them that we've found so far, so we'd like to just say to Holsteins, you can bam-boozle us any day.
Burger Bar at Mandalay BarLike every bar should, this famous chef's burger bar has a hearty selection of liquors to add to your chocolate or vanilla shake, or your root beer float. Whether you want a shot of Jameson, or four shots of Jagermeister to start your night, you get to build your shake to your liking and then add other toppings as needed. Personally, we can't go wrong with chocolate syrup and sprinkles galore to mask the taste of the five shots we're sneaking into our Vegas milkshakes! Hey, YOLO! Am I right? As you probably expected, the milkshakes and the food here are not what you'll get at your local '50's diner, so you can expect to just about double the price of what you'd pay in places like this.
BLT Burger at the MirageThey have not one, not two, but FIVE different spiked milkshakes to slurp down and savor. Different flavored liquors top vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream for rich flavor and every sip is worth the potential brain freeze. These shakes are large and the perfect amount of rich with whipped cream on top - and weigh in at about $12 a pop - so be cautious when you're deciding on your main course, because it's been said that the burger, fries and a milkshake is just too much. Fortunately, that's what to-go boxes are for, since the milkshake should be your priority here anyways. The 'Night Rider' is a real chocolate-y treat, while 'Fuzzy the Bear' is a peachy delight as well.
Stripburger at the Fashion Show MallWhile they are known for those delicious sweet potato fries and their blue cheese burger, the milkshakes are also causing quite a stir. The butterscotch milkshake is awesome on it's own - all of them are, really - but add a shot of rum for right around $2 a shot (What a deal!) and you just took that milkshake to the next level. We wouldn't recommend coming here to share a shake though, because while that may look romantic in the movies, it just causes a lot of tension in the bedroom later. Nobody can stay happy with a girl who just slurped down more than her fair share of heaven, and it is hard to come back from that.
Neapolitan at the CosmopolitanOkay, we will admit that we have yet to try their frozen concoctions since their grand opening this summer, but we definitely have high hopes for this place. Frozen treats are infused with alcohol and they look enticing to say the least. Not only does this joint have adult milkshakes like the rest of the places on our list, but they have push-pops, smoothies, Popsicles and more in case you want an old-fashioned icy treat.
Many restaurants and bars in Vegas serve up frozen concoctions laced with liquor and oozing with sugar, but these are the adult milkshakes in Las Vegas that are truly worth the $10 that they cost. As you've noticed, most of the milkshakes are served at burger places, but you can also get them at watering holes like The Pub at Monte Carlo, the Sugar Factory American Brasserie and so on and so forth.
Let us know what YOUR favorite adult milkshake is and where you go to get your fix when you're in the land of innocent drinks with a rascally twist. Feel free to comment in the section below, on our Facebook page or even by following us on Twitter. Who knows, maybe we'll be drinking together one day, making new flavors of our own. Or just drinking the ones already out there, that's cool too. Whatever...
