Joy the Baker's Happy Hour Hot Fudge Milkshake post adds an adult twist to a beverage that is ordinarily made for children. Joy begins the entry with a reference to her first job at an ice cream store. It was then that she first became well acquainted with the cold dessert.
Milkshakes have always been an escape for Joy. In the past she drank them during her breaks, and now she has incorporated them into an escapist Happy Hour concept. To produce the drink, she used melted dark chocolate, bourbon, sprinkles, fudge sauce, whole milk, vanilla extract and a cherry. The mixture comes together in a single frothy cup, distinguishing it as a hybrid dessert-beverage.
