Copycat Red Robin Blue Moon Beer Milkshake

It has been over a year since I was last at Red Robin....and when we went this last weekend they had a new beer milkshake! Of course not getting there too often I had to make my own copy!!!
My husbands comment....."John Steinbeck would be proud!" (Cannery Row if you have never read it)

Makes 2 shakes

1 1/2 cups quality vanilla ice cream
2 TB orange juice concentrate
6 oz Blue Moon White Belgian Ale
1 1/2 ounces Orange Liqueur
1 tsp xanthan gum*

Blend ice cream, OJ and Blue Moon to a smooth consistency, add the shot of liqueur and xanthan gum.
Pour into glasses, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of orange zest

*xanthan gum is not 100% necessary, it just thickens it well....if you dont want to add it, just stick it in the freezer to thicken.

  1. Super Pickle you are the cucumber!!! Thank you thousands for your copycat recipes for the Red Robin's Blue Moon shake as well as the Guiness irish cream shake! Though i do add ALOT more alcohol & even ice cream into my shakes, you set up the immaculate blue print which leads me into perfection. Drinks up! Sobers down.... :) = :0
