Milkshakes are yummy desserts that bring nothing but pleasant feelings. They are loved by all age groups and have a unique mixture of ingredients including happiness hidden inside. There are so many flavors of shakes that you can try in Vegas you never have to have the same shake twice. Without any doubt, there is always something special about the shakes at Las Vegas. 

For all Las Vegans, milkshakes have always been the most delicious dessert that leaves a satisfying feeling behind. Tourists also love sipping these frosty collections to indulge their taste buds and cool off from the Vegas heat. It’s no wonder these cream-filled milkshakes are crazy popular in this vibrant city. 

Many restaurants in Las Vegas have their own signature milkshake on the menu and many will add booze upon request. Sadly, you cannot taste them all in one go, the chances are that you might be looking for easy selection tips. Below we have listed some of the most delicious and fun milkshakes in Las Vegas.

1. Holstein Shakes and Burgers:Holsteins Shakes and Buns boozy milkshakes

For many Las Vegans, the milkshake is nothing without a burger. It is the most loved combination of food in the area. People love to complement the large burgers with a creamy, thick, and delicious milkshake. It is possible to make selections for alcoholic and non-alcoholic shakes on the menu.

There is a huge variety of shakes in this restaurant that you can order to cherish the unique taste. Some of the best options are Campfire S’mores, Brown Cow, Frozen Grasshopper, Fat Boy, Oreo, and Drunken Monkey. Holsteins Shakes and Burgers is located in the Cosmopolitan.

2. Ethel M’sPecan Brittle Mojave Milkshake at Ethel Ms

Well, when you are sitting at Ethel M’s chocolate factory; the milkshake is no longer just a milkshake; it is actually a delectable blend of frosty, thick, melted chocolate with ice, whipped cream, and many other ingredients. The concoction is a surprising addition to the beverage counter in this restaurant.

You can enjoy these shakes with gourmet chocolates and enjoy the rich flavor to get relief in the peak heat of the summer season. The amazing caramel and vanilla version will bring a big smile on your face. My favorite is the Pecan Brittle Mojave Milkshake. These are only available from their Spring Spectacular event to their Fall Fest.
