National Chocolate Milkshake Day
Smooth, frothy, rich, and sweet are just a few of the words that describe today's reason to celebrate—the chocolate milkshake! Did you know that the first reference to a milkshake appeared in a British newspaper in 1885? The original recipe called for a shot of whiskey! Yuck! Sorry this gal doesn't care for Whiskey
Milkshakes were popular at soda fountain counters in the early 1900s and are now a mainstay at ice cream shops, diners, and fast food restaurants throughout the country.
For today's celebration, I'm trying this new recipe out at Ghiradelli, one of my favorite Chocolates. And being a Native Californian, of course, have to go with Ghirardelli! So if you have time, join with me in trying this recipe out. If not, I understand, but make sure you pick up a Milkshake wherever you choose to get yours, I hope you enjoy National Chocolate Milkshake Day!
