Welcome to the wonderful world of hard shakes - pimped up retro drinks for 'dirty' diners with the extra fillip of an alcoholic hit

Nothing sings of pure indulgence like supping a chocolate thickshake through a straw, the ice cream melting and oozing down the side of a cool soda glass. Add a little bourbon to take that taste to the top Or perhaps your favourite is a frothy frapp or a fizzy float? Recreate milkshake bar classics with a boozy twist and experiment with inspired new creations in your own home with this delightfully irreverent book. For a nostalgic option, turn to The Candy Bar chapter which is full of brilliant blends: from a Drunken S'mores shake to a Peanut Butter Cup showstopper. Indulgent recipes from The Cake Shop such as Key Lime Pie and Black Forest Frapp that take treats to the next level. The Cocktail Shaker includes recipes for an Aztec Margarita, a Dark & Stormy ice cream float and an Amaretto Sour shake. While fun recipes in Shake, Rattle & Roll are perfect for the rock star in all of us; from The Elvis, a banana and peanut-rich boozy shake with spiced rum to a tropical delight that will inspire your friends to start sipping on Pi a Colada... Whatever your choice, these recipes make a perfect pick-me-up.
