Of all the weird world news this week (hostage-taking cats, oh my!) the headline that might be everyone’s favorite — or perhaps least depressing — is that mid-priced, average-tasting, mall-dwelling corporate burger chain Red Robin has thrown their hand into the crafty cocktail game by offering a wine milkshake on their new seasonal menu.

That’s right: Wine. Milkshake. Two words. together in the same sentence. Together in the same glass. Targeting “35- to 49-year-old moms in need of a break,” this sugar bomb is something we, though not their target audience as non-moms, are curious about.

But what about those moments in life where you’re like, “I’m not a 35-49-year-old mom, nor am in need of a break, but I also don’t want to put on pants and dine at a burger joint.” What then??! Well we’ve created two boozy “milk”shakes that don’t require being a mom or putting on pants.

We hereby present two 3-ingredient boozy shakes that are easy, and crazy-tasty. Whip one up, and toast to all those moms at malls who need breaks and to the fact that you made this at home without pants or (hopefully) wailing children.
