This killer recipe mixes sweet and salty flavors, warm and cold temperatures, and a welcome shot of rum! Drink right away after serving!

Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla are the most popular milkshake flavors, but today, I turned to Argentina and Cuba for inspiration to pump up this delicious treat. I bring to you: Rum & Dulce de Leche Milkshake.

Dulce de Leche is popular all over Latin America, and Argentineans certainly love it. Rum, made from sugarcane, is also available and popular globally, but it is often said that Cuba does it best.

The secret to a good milkshake is a solid ice cream. In my opinion, the simpler the better, so splurge on a good brand of vanilla ice cream to get the best results.

Drink up! You deserve it.

Chef Notes

You could get a little creative and also rim the glasses with crushed graham crackers! Or a mix of graham crackers and sea salt. For added decadence, accompany your shake with a churro!
