Strawberry Shortcake Shake with Vodka (click through for tutorial)Once the weather starts to warm up every year, it’s time to catch up on the things I’ve missed all winter long–creamy milkshakes, cold cocktails and fresh berries, to name a few! This vodka-laced strawberry milkshake just happens to check all those boxes. Oh, and don’t forget the shortcake rim... in case you needed one more reason to drop everything and make one right now.

This milkshake cocktail is a breeze to whip up–just throw your berries and dairy in a blender. While the shortcake crumbles are getting golden and toasty in the oven, don’t forget to whip some fresh cream to top the whole thing off! It takes 10-15 minutes to make from start to finish and way less time to polish it off. Pro tip: use a straw to to get every last drop!

Toast in an even layer on a parchment lined baking sheet in a toaster oven or in a standard oven at 200º F for 3-4 minutes until golden and slightly dry. Meanwhile, beat the whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add the teaspoon of sugar, and then continue beating just until stiff peaks form.
