ignore any flurries outside, and treat yourself to a kahlua oreo mcflurry (everything you love about the usual oreo mcflurry, but with some coffee and kahlua for extra addictiveness!).
i was disinterested in alcohol for the majority of college. sure, i knew what absinthe was, had used sherry to deglaze maillard-y pans, grew up on chocolate kahlua cake. but it was so gross tasting to me that i didn’t see the point. my dad wanted to get me drunk at home pre-college so i would know my limits, though i had no desire to even get tipsy after i tried a sip of his screwdriver. blech.
something happened after i turned 21. it got exciting to go out for drinks, to take a few sips of my friends’ passion fruit, strawberry, kiwi swirled frozen margaritas. vanilla ice cream floats with orange smirnoff ice became my new party trick, until i switched to making my new favorite: the kahlua oreo mcflurry.
i like a gentle 1 tsp kahlua, but add more as you see fit. some of my friends like their mcflurries less of a mcflurry texture, and closer to soup. either way, you get the crunch of the oreos and a really creamy, decadent vanilla ice cream-based milkshake like the original. the ground coffee and kahlua add a hint of bitter, a hint of booze to cut through some of the sweetness from the rest of the milkshake.

- 1 1/2 cups ice cream softened slightly
- a splash of milk cold
- 1/2 tsp ground coffee
- 1 tsp Kahlua
- 1/2 cup Oreos crushed
Place the ice cream, milk, ground coffee, Kahlua and half of the Oreos into a blender. Blend for 15-30 seconds, or until the McFlurry is mixed and thick. Stir in the rest of the Oreos and serve immediately.
i’m trying to be better about planning out my photoshoots (especially for time-sensitive foods, ie this kahlua oreo mcflurry because you better bet it’s going to melt faster than you want it to), but i didn’t for this one. i was running around and didn’t love any of the pics i was taking, so i decided to put myself into it. but i was wearing a shirt with a BIGGG logo that i didn’t want in the picture, so then i grabbed a black tank top i just bought that day, but for whatever reason it made me look topless, so i ended up with this black longsleeve. yw.
