Red Robin Gingerbread Milkshake Recipe

Prepare the Gingerbread Syrup

  1. In a medium saucepan, mix the water, sugar, ginger, vanilla extract and cinnamon. The pan's size is crucial, because if it is too small the concoction may bubble over.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat and allow it to simmer for 15 minutes. Do not cover the pan. Place the syrup in a container with a lid covering it.[4]

Blend the Milkshake

  1. Blend 1 1/2 ounces of the gingerbread syrup, the milk and ice cream.
  2. Place graham cracker crumbs, whipped cream and gingersnap on top of the drink as desired.[4]

Red Robin offers an alternative form of their Gingerbread Milkshake that is strictly for adults. The recipe calls for a shot of Jim Beam bourbon whiskey, adding a sharp flavor to the sweet and spiced dessert drink. The milkshake is an allusion to the tradition of having gingerbread people, cookies, houses and other creations during the holiday season.[1]
