Kahlua Oreo McFlurry

This straw might be too big for this Kahlua Oreo McFlurry, but that just means you get more McFlurry faster! #oreo #kahlua #mcflurry #icecream

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.

Imagine a hint of coffee and a slight boozy warmth (oxymoron in ice cream but still) in your McFlurry, and you've got a Kahlua Oreo McFlurry.

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.

  1. I love that your Dad wanted you to get drunk at home first, haha! I feel like that’s something my husband would do with our kids. The only problem with this drink is that I would drink too many! So yum.

  2. I’m so gonna make this drink today for my kids (minus the kahlua, of course). They will totally love it and a heavy dose of kahlua for me to get through all the homework, 😀😀

  3. Yes please, I will happily have a glass of this delicious looking cocktail.

  4. You were such a good girl in college, haha. MEANWHILE I WAS MAKING COCKTAILS WHILE STUDYING. Mmmm, the mcflurry sounds delicious! I am always a fan of that hint of alcohol, haha. I need to try this out!!
