Irish Beer Milkshake

When I first read about the Red Robin Irish Beer Milkshake, I assumed it was just another St. Patrick's Day gimmick. But then I got to thinking; Guinness Draught, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and chocolate ice cream. How bad could it be? We've been known to serve beer and ice cream floats ourselves. So we recently headed for Red Robin to try out these shakes for ourselves.

The shakes looked like one would expect, the creamy shake topped with a heaping pile of whipped cream. The initial flavor was sweet chocolate, and then the whiskey comes in to play. I was pleasantly surprised by how apparent the whiskey was. The Guinness aspect was not noticeable beyond a faint roasted malt, but that may be more attributable to the chocolate and whiskey combo. The shakes were quite tasty. Of course, that shouldn't be too much of a surprise. Guinness Beer. Jameson Whiskey. Chocolate. Need I say more?


  1. Red Robin as in the hamburger place? There's one of those in Frederick...

  2. Who knew? I may have to do some experimenting.
