As Fashion Week comes to a close, take a break from Haute Couture and indulge your sweet tooth with a chocolate milkshake on Wednesday in honor of National Chocolate Milkshake Day. Celebrate your favorite childhood treat with a grown-up twist at three restaurants that are observing the chocolate holiday with boozy panache.
Midtown ‘cue joint Virgil’s Real Barbecue is pulling out all the stops with their Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Milkshake. It’s made with Bulliet Bourbon, vanilla ice cream, and Maraschino cherries. the chocolate comes into play in the form of decadent chocolate shavings that pull the whole drink together.

If you’re downtown and in the mood for something a little spicier than your average chocolate shake, try the “Hot” Chocolate at Slide. In case you couldn’t tell by the name, Slide is best known for their sliders, but their shakes are remarkable in their own right. The “Hot” Chocolate is one example. A base of chocolate ice cream is kicked up a few notches with chili powder, hot sauce, and Sombra Mezcal in this creative take on the classic dessert drink.

If you’ve been hanging around the Fashion Week scene and don’t want to travel far to get your chocolate shake fix, A.G. Kitchenhas got you covered with the Chocolate Mint. Though it’s not described as a milk shake, the consistency is similar. The concoction is made with malted powder, caramel sauce, and Jim Beam. Treat yourself to one of these: you won’t be sorry.
