Wine Milkshakes Come to LA Burger Chain

Wine Milkshakes Come to LA Burger Chain

Would you try this high class boozy shake?

Wine and ice cream, frosty cocktails, and creamy white Russians have all made their appearances in America’s summer drinking repertoire. Now, there’s a new cocktail that wants to win you over: the wine milkshake. This isn’t your normal, plain jane shake.

The Counter burger joint in LA just announced its new wine milkshakes that will come in three flavors inspired by classic desserts. There’s a pinot noir and cherry one, made with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, a sweet white wine one, paired with peaches and vanilla ice cream, and a white wine one with orange juice and vanilla ice cream. These creations may seem odd, but remember that wine and dairy are long time companions. Afterall, the wine and cheese plate is always a welcome addition to the dinner table; maybe the wine milkshake will become an omnipresent force at the burger joint. It’s the summery way to have your black forest cake, peaches and cream crumble or creamsicle with an adult twist.

If you’re now eager to try a wineshake, head over to a The Counter burger outpost in California's Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Century City, Toluca Lake, or El Segundo. Can’t make it to LA? With wine and ice cream popping up on the frosty cocktail radar this summer, it’s only a matter of time before these drinks are available around the country.


I Tried Every Single Menu Item From Shake Shack, These Were The Best

I still remember the first time I ever went to a Shake Shack&mdashin the middle of July, in the middle of New York City (Madison Square Park), and in the middle of the day when the line for the burger chain was wrapped around the park. It was possibly the longest, sweatiest line I'd ever been in&mdashand I've been to Disney World in dead of summer. I remember muttering under my breath to my friend who swore it would be "Totally worth the wait!" that it better damn be. Luckily for my friend, she was absolutely correct. I had fallen in love with. a cheeseburger. (I have pics for proof, but that's neither here nor there.) My love affair with Shake Shack has been a lasting one, so getting the chance to try everything on the menu in the comfort of my own home was close to one of the easiest decisions of my life. Without boring you more, here are my top picks:

Milkshakes: Black & White

I do believe it was Miley Cyrus&mdashsorry, Hannah Montana&mdashwho sang about getting the best of both worlds, and I'm 92 percent positive she was referring to Shake Shack's Black & White Milkshake. If you let it melt just a litttttle bit, it tastes exactly like a Wendy's chocolate frosty. And you know what goes great with a frosty? Fries. Lots and lots of fries. Please promise me you will dip at least one fry into your Black & White shake for me.

Honorable mention: The vanilla shake with a touch of Jameson or your favorite whiskey 😉

Sides: Cheese Fries

Danny Meyer, the creator of Shake Shack, was inspired by the Midwest when drawing up the menu for his modern day burger stand. It should come as to no surprise that when it came to the french fry shape, he chose crinkle cut fries. (Fun fact: They're crispier than your usual fry thanks to all that extra surface area that touches the oil.) The fries on their own are. fine. With cheese sauce though? Oh, heck yeah. That blend of cheddar and American cheese deserves to be on everything.

Flat-Top Dogs: Hot Dog

ICYMI: Shake Shack actually started as a hot dog cart. Confusing, I know. But these hot dogs aren't your typical ballpark 'dog. They're split down the middle then griddled until crisp on top, which makes them ready for toppings. Special shoutout to the potato roll, for always being soft yet not mushy, dependable yet not boastful.

Burgers: ShackBurger

It's the original for a reason! And also trademarked. for a reason?? Melty cheddar covering a perfect burger patty, smothered in ShackSauce is something we all deserve to experience once in our lives. There's nothing fussy about this burger (looking at you, Shack Stack) which is why it stole my heart. Sometimes simpler truly is better.

Chicken: Chick'n Bites

Tbh, I had never once ordered the Chick'n Bites in all my times of going to Shake Shack. I didn't see the purpose when the Chick'n Shack&mdashwith its pickles, and buttermilk herb mayo&mdashwas right there in front of me. I was SLEEPING on these bites. I can't believe I never gave them a try. These bites are crispy, breaded to the perfect ratio (at least double-breaded), and moist. I would like to formally apologize to Chick'n Bites for never giving them a real, honest chance in my past.

Honorable mention: The vanilla shake with a touch of Jameson or your favorite whiskey 😉

Sides: Cheese Fries

Danny Meyer, the creator of Shake Shack, was inspired by the Midwest when drawing up the menu for his modern day burger stand. It should come as to no surprise that when it came to the french fry shape, he chose crinkle cut fries. (Fun fact: They're crispier than your usual fry thanks to all that extra surface area that touches the oil.) The fries on their own are. fine. With cheese sauce though? Oh, heck yeah. That blend of cheddar and American cheese deserves to be on everything.

Flat-Top Dogs: Hot Dog

ICYMI: Shake Shack actually started as a hot dog cart. Confusing, I know. But these hot dogs aren't your typical ballpark 'dog. They're split down the middle then griddled until crisp on top, which makes them ready for toppings. Special shoutout to the potato roll, for always being soft yet not mushy, dependable yet not boastful.

Burgers: ShackBurger

It's the original for a reason! And also trademarked. for a reason?? Melty cheddar covering a perfect burger patty, smothered in ShackSauce is something we all deserve to experience once in our lives. There's nothing fussy about this burger (looking at you, Shack Stack) which is why it stole my heart. Sometimes simpler truly is better.

Chicken: Chick'n Bites

Tbh, I had never once ordered the Chick'n Bites in all my times of going to Shake Shack. I didn't see the purpose when the Chick'n Shack&mdashwith its pickles, and buttermilk herb mayo&mdashwas right there in front of me. I was SLEEPING on these bites. I can't believe I never gave them a try. These bites are crispy, breaded to the perfect ratio (at least double-breaded), and moist. I would like to formally apologize to Chick'n Bites for never giving them a real, honest chance in my past.
