On past Christmas time brunches, we've had spritzers, mimosas, and even a bloody mary bar. This year, bourbon was the spirit of choice. Simply omit the bourbon for those who choose not to imbibe or for the kiddos. The result is a really rich vanilla milkshake!
2 cups milk
1/2 cup bourbon
1/8 cup vanilla extract
1/8 cup simple syrup
8 oz. vanilla ice cream
grated nutmeg for topping
Add all ingredients except for nutmeg in a blender. Cover blender and pulse until all ingredients are well combined and but still thick like a milkshake. Pour into glasses and top with freshly grated nutmeg. Serve immediately.
