Creamy, sweet, and divine. These are the words that come to mind when I think of a chocolate malted shake. The milkshake is a staple of American culture dating back to the early 1880s. These early milkshakes were similar to eggnog, having been created with a hearty helping of eggs and whiskey to serve as a tonic and a treat.
Now in 2017, there have been some eye-popping innovations in the world of milkshake crafting. While whiskey and eggs might’ve been the original ingredients in a milkshake, be prepared to get your socks rocked off with these ingenious milkshake creations from an NYC restaurant called Black Tap.
