What does summer mean to you? For me, summer means leaving the windows open all night, plenty of BBQs, weekends sitting by the pool, maybe a vacation at the lake and plenty of margaritas and s’mores. When I was a child, we went camping every summer. And by camping, I mean REAL camping, where you sleep in a tent, cook all your meals on the campfire and you have to walk with a flash light in the middle of the night to the bathrooms. Don’t forget to lock up the food in your car or you will have a serious raccoon (or black bear) problem. This girl has never camped in an RV.

My favorite thing about camping is cooking on the campfire. There is nothing better than real camp fire food! Plus, you can pretty much have endless amounts of s’mores and who doesn’t love that? As an adult, I feel like I am less inclined to sleep in a tent, but I still want to enjoy some s’mores. So while the temperatures warming, I figured I could combine some toasted marshmallow with some ice cream and bourbon infused chocolate to make myself an adult dessert.

That is exactly how this Bourbon Toasted S’mores Milkshake came to be. As soon as I got my hands on a bottle of bourbon, I started thinking of all the wonderful things I could make with it. Sure, you could just add a splash of bourbon into your milkshake, but that’s no fun. So I decided to infuse the chocolate instead.

I also wanted to ensure this shake had toasted marshmallows. Since it can be pretty hot in most parts of this country in the summer, I gave you three different ways to toast the marshmallows: in the microwave, in the oven or on the grill. I happen to have a handheld kitchen torch,  which allowed me to add a little extra char to my marshmallows. If you choose to melt the marshmallows in the microwave, watch them closely, they start to puff up very fast!

I asked my Facebook fans earlier this week what was their favorite ways to make s’more. I got some pretty awesome answers involving peanut butter, banana, Nutella, coconut and pretzels. Now go out an make yourself some s’mores!
