Ingredients for Olmeca Tequila Dark Chocolate Milkshakes

The ingredients for this delightful treat are simple, and pretty much unchanged since we were kids, so long as you added the contents of Dad’s liquor cabinet to Mom’s well-stocked pantry!

  • 1 cup of chocolate ice cream
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 2 shots of Olmeca Dark Chocolate Tequila
  • Whipped cream



How to Make a Tequila with Chocolate Milkshake

Making this alcoholic drink with chocolate is equally as easy. Child’s play really! (Provided you’re over 18, that is!)

  1. Place all ingredients, except the whipped cream, in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth but still thick.
  3. Add some whipped cream on top for a more decadent look.



Tips for Drinking the Perfect Tequila Milkshake

It’s not like you need any tips on how to enjoy a milkshake, but here are a few pointers that can make the most of your Olmeca Dark Chocolate milkshake!

  • Use a tall milkshake glass, which is the ideal kind of glass needed to enjoy the drink properly.
  • Throw in a bendy straw to make it even more of a milkshake!
  • Garnish the inside of the glass with chocolate syrup.
  • Add whipped cream on top for the restaurant look.
  • Keep your Olmeca Dark Chocolate Tequila frozen, so the mix will stay cold once all the ingredients are blended.
  • Serve immediately or, for a thicker consistency, place the full glasses in your freezer for 30 minutes.
  • You can also serve these tequila milkshakes in shot glasses if you just want a nip of a taste. All the above points can stay the same, but just use smaller portions obviously!



Variations of This Tequila Milkshake

Milkshakes are about having fun, so feel free to explore variations as much as your heart desires.

  • Substitute Olmeca Dark Chocolate with Olmeca Reposado Tequila. This is great for those who want to appreciate all the flavour and contrasts of a quality tequila. Reposado Tequila makes for a great alcoholic base, as its fruity, sweet, and slightly woody flavour is the perfect complement to the taste of a milkshake.
  • Chocolate, unbelievably, not your thing? Stir things up a bit. Mix Olmeca White or Olmeca Gold with your favourite flavoured ice cream, be it strawberry, vanilla, or even Rocky Road!



When is the Best Time to Drink an Ice Cream Tequila Shake?

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, but when isn’t it a great time for tequila! And when you combine that with everyone’s favourite milkshake, it’s pretty much 24/7.

  • Enjoy your tequila milkshakes at a party, especially around a braai, when you’re cooking up some flame-grilled burgers.
  • Serve them on a warm evening, as a light summery dessert, after a hearty dinner with your friends. And why not make that dinner Mexican style, with nachos and quesadillas?



What’s the story behind milkshakes?

Let’s rewind to 1885, the year when the term “milkshake” was first used in print. Believe it or not, milkshakes started off their creamy lives as alcoholic beverages.


They were described as a “sturdy, healthful eggnog type of drink, with, amongst other ingredients, eggs and alcohol, served as a tonic as well as a treat”.


However, by the turn of the twentieth century, milkshakes lost their boozy connection, and were served with chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla syrups, as we know them today.
