What's more satisfying than the rich and creamy sweetness of a milkshake? A milkshake that will also get you totally buzzed. As cocktails and desserts respectively reach new heights, boozy milkshakes stand as a triumphant mixture of the two worlds.

When you were a kid, you probably thought that milkshakes were the best thing in the world. But you were wrong – that would be adult milkshakes. When you combine a shot (or two) of whiskey, milk, ice, and plenty of mix-ins like Oreo or bacon, it truly is a match made in heaven.

But where can one find boozy milkshakes in Dallas? As hotter weather quickly approaches, these 11 spots can provide cold, creamy alcoholic relief.

When you’re this theater/dive bar/restaurant, $8 goes a long way with adult shake options like The Temptress Shake, made with Lakewood Milk Stout, or the Maker’s Mark Milk Punch Shake.

The “adult milkshakes” at this Oak Cliff destination use ice cream made in-house, and with local ingredients for a truly fresh treat.

Although there has been a long-going debate on whether or not Yoo-hoo is a dairy drink or not, it’s chocolatey goodness maintains a nostalgic hold on our hearts. Combine it with Kahlua and vanilla vodka and you have the Yoo-hoo Yee-haw, a creative (read: white trash) take on a white Russian.

Grub Burger Bar

As if milkshakes and burgers weren’t already a top-tier pairing, being able to spike milky concoctions like s’mores, Nutella, or “Everything but the kitchen sink” sounds that much more appealing.

While you have the option to spike standard flavors like vanilla bean and red velvet, Hopdoddy also features special flavors in the rotation, like the current frozen banana, made with roasted banana mash and spiced vanilla ice cream.

The adult shake menu at this burger franchise will take you down memory lane with options like the Orange Julius, that claims to be “like you drank when you were little, but better” and The Lebowski, befitting of The Dude himself.

Pints & Quarts

Milkshakes recently arrived to the menu at this Lower Greenville burger spot, which means that you'll need to add it to your drinking (and burger eating) rotation. Any of the milkshakes, like the Oreo shake above, can be spiked with a shot of booze for the grown-ups. Isn't life beautiful?

Rapscallion

In honor of its southern aesthetic, Rapscallion features a float simply known as the Kentucky Standoff. The drink combines the sweet Texas nectar of Dr. Pepper with bourbon, then is topped with chewy peanut brittle for a truly southern delight.

An added perk of this old fashioned soda fountain themed restaurant is its full bar, meaning that customers have the option of adding alcohol to many of the milkshakes and sodas.
