What the Frappe? THIS is a Real Milkshake

J. Kenji López-Alt 50 comments

You know what a milkshake is, right? Ice cream, a splash of milk, perhaps some flavored syrup or malt (if you want to get extra special), all blended together with a powerful whirring disk until smooth and creamy. That's what you think a milkshake is, but you're wrong. As any true New Englander can tell you, what you got there ain't a milkshake. It's a frappe, plain and simple. More

Drinks Autumn Giles 1 comment

I'm not about to be so bold as to publicly hate on pie, but when summer berries are so close to perfect it can feel like a bit of a crime to throw all of them in the oven. These berry shakes are a perfect way to enjoy summer berries as close to their natural state of perfection as possible when you've tired of just shoving them in your face by the handful. More

Just in time to compete with McDonald's Shamrock Shake and Dunkin' Donuts' Lucky Mint Coolatta for your neon-green-tinted-drink dollars, Cinnabon is rolling out its limited-time-only Oreo Mint Chillatta. It's a frozen beverage that looks just like a shake but does not at all drink like one. More

We Try Burgerville's Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake

Drinks Adam Lindsley 2 comments

Something about Nutella makes even the most mild mannered horf it down in an animalistic frenzy. And while Pacific Northwest-based Burgerville isn't using any actual Nutella here, the spirit of the transcendent spread is alive and well in the chain's delicious seasonal Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake.

We Try Burgerville's Pumpkin Milkshake

Drinks Adam Lindsley 2 comments

Burgerville sources their pumpkins from Stahlbush Island Farms in Corvallis, Oregon, located 80 miles south of Portland. Because pureed pumpkin reaches a much smoother consistency than, say, blackberries or raspberries, this is Burgerville's easiest-drinking seasonal shake yet. For lovers of milkshakes and pumpkin + spice, Burgerville's fall seasonal shake is an easy recommendation. More

5 Milkshakes We Love in Washington, D.C.

Drinks Brian Oh 6 comments

An excellent milkshake taste like fresh, high-quality dairy with a good balance of milk and ice cream. Too thick and it's just soggy ice cream, too thin and it's soupy milk. Too much syrup and you've got an overly sweet ticket to naptime. But a good shake will help you forget you're sucking down a glass full of 1,000 calories, and our nation's capital has quite a few winners. Here are 5 of our favorite milkshakes in Washington, D.C.

It's Back: the Shamrock Shake at McDonald's

Drinks Lauren Rothman 25 comments

People go gaga over this drink: each Shamrock season, blogs (like, well, us) and news sites around the country hail its return to the McDonald's menu, and there's even an entire website, shamrockshake.com, devoted to tracking down the milkshake (which, presumably, will be a lot easier to do this year, but that hasn't stopped users from breathlessly posting local "sightings"). What is it about this soft-serve creation that gets people so fired up? More
