National Vanilla Milkshake Day Date in the current year: June 20, 2016

National Vanilla Milkshake Day June 20 is National Vanilla Milkshake Day. People across country happily celebrate this day annually.

The first reference to milkshake dates back to 1885. The first milkshakes were not suitable for children, because the drinks contained whiskey. At that time milkshake was similar to eggnog and it contained eggs, whiskey, milk, etc. By the 1900s eggs and whiskey were dropped and milkshake was made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrup. And the milkshake we know was born in 1922, when an employee at Chicago Walgreens added two scoops of ice cream to malted milk, that was widely used for milkshakes. Malted milkshake became popular nationwide and new varieties of the drink evolved: floating milkshake, malted milkshake and maltless milkshake.

Celebrate National Vanilla Milkshake Day with a glass of sweet treat. If you plan to make milkshake for adults only, you can add some alcohol to make it tastier. A shot of whiskey or your favorite liquor will be enough. Combine ice cream, milk, alcohol and vanilla extract in blender. Then pour milkshake in glasses and serve the drink immediately. Remember, the more ice cream you use to make a milkshake, the thicker it will be.
