Whiskey Chocolate Chunk Coffee Milkshake Recipe

Today we celebrate Noni (aka my grandmother). Because it’s her birthday, and she just told me that now, at 92, she’ll finally start admitting her real age.

To toast her, I’ve concocted this Whiskey Chocolate Chunk Coffee Milkshake recipe because it combines all of her favorite indulgences — chocolate, whisky, and coffee — each of which she has daily and which she claims are secrets to longevity. She’s seriously worthy of toasting, not just because Noni is the only grandparent I have left but because she’s an amazing creature. Never one to be seen without her Ferragamo flats, black trousers, and Chanel No 5, she’s as classic as they come.

She’s arguably the best cook in our family, and her gnocchi skills are her culinary proof that she’s 100% Italian. That said, I likely should’ve made her a homemade cake or something more elaborate. But I owe her this Chocolate Irish Coffee Milkshake — it’s my duty because I never really apologized for when I was 6 and toppled a whole chocolate chip milkshake in the back of her brand-new Buick.

Regardless, we’ll put a candle in it and likely have it after lunch because midday spiked milkshakes are allowed when you’re 92. Noni told me so.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
