Lemon Drop Shake

Earlier this month a national salute to milkshakes took place. ooopppsss!!!! I missed it but still want to share with you about those yummy treats. Milkshakes have for long been a favorite of our family and many others as well. They come in many flavors, more than when I was a kid that is for sure. May I ask what your favorite is?? With all the different flavors it is hard to believe that the craze of a milkshake started in a bar.

Yes, that's right I said a bar. The term milkshake came about after a fad of shaking the bartenders hand if the milkshake was enjoyed. If the milkshake served to the patron was not the best, there was no shake and definitely no tip. Milkshakes came along away since those early days.

The invention of malted milk powder was invented in 1897 by James and William Horlick. It was not until 1922 when a soda jerk by the name of Coulson added it to milkshakes. The malted milkshake or "malt" was created at that time. The year, 1922 was also good for the makers of milkshakes as the electric blender for milkshakes was invented making them easier to prepare.

5-6 scoops of vanilla ice cream (using an ice cream scoop)
1/2 cup lemonade
optional, sugar and lemon juice to rim the glass
In a blender, combine the vanilla ice cream and lemonade. Blend until combined.
Use a little bit of lemon juice in a shallow dish to wet the rim of the glass. Then dip the rim into another shallow bowl filled with sugar.
Pour the shake into the glass. Enjoy and top with a lemon slice if desired.
