Dark 'n' Stormy Milkshake

The Dark ‘n’ Stormy is a favorite simple summer cocktail around CHOW, so we decided to see if we could re-create it in shake form. It wasn’t much of a stretch: Rum, ginger, and lime are already made for dessert.

What to buy: Ginger juice is available at most grocery stores.

Game plan: For a slacker solution, if you can find ginger ice cream, you can sub it for the vanilla ice cream and ginger juice—the shake just won’t have quite as much of a kick.

For a superslacker solution, make a float instead by simply throwing a few scoops of ice cream into your Dark ‘n’ Stormy cocktail.

This recipe was featured as part of our story on Boozy Cocktail Milk Shakes.


Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Pulse 8 to 10 times or until mostly smooth. Pour into a chilled glass, garnish with a lime twist if you want to get fancy, and serve.
